RE: Calling all 4kq turbo conversions

Well without going into too much detail it is not only the right side harness 
that needs work on the mc motor.  There are also sensors on the left harness 
that need to be routed.  It is extremely difficult to work on the left harness 
with the dash in.   Even putting an mc motor into a coupe quattro is not an 
easy swap.

 Maybe the pre mc motor is a good swap for someone who wants to do it fairly 
quickly but I am pretty sure there are some hp limitations on the pre mc that 
are a ways below the mc's capabilities.  There is also the issue of turbo 
durability since it is not a water cooled turbo, however with a relatively 
stock configuration it is probably not that big of an issue.

With the glove box removed (3-4 screws) and drivers side panel (also 
3-4 screws) you have all the access you would ever need (without 
lying on your back.  Why remove the dash?  I can't see how that would help
