Retrofit Questions : Dreaming On a Winter's Day
Sitting in traffic in PA snow today got me wishing my Jetta GLX had all
wheel drive. My mind started to wander back to the '84 high mileage 4000Q I
found. After work today I started paging through some back magazines (VW
Audi Car from the UK to be specific), and found an article on a UK Quattro
tuning firm, specializing in Ur-Quattros specifically.
One popular upgrade they said they perform, is 10V to 20V setups and also
20V to RS2 specs during rebuilds. What I am curious about is this....
1. Is a 20VT and tranny install into an '84 4KQ sedan possible? If so, what
other upgrades would be necessary? Clutch? Drivetrain? Braking? I am
presuming the 4KQ engine bay is quite similar to that of the UrQ
2. 4 to 5 lug conversion would be another thing I'd want to have done. With
this I presume a wealth of upgraded braking systems etc. might be possible.
3. Would an Ur-Q set of euro headlamps and grille fit the early 4K?
4. Is there any parts car that would supply me everything? I am thinking a
wrecked 200TQ perhaps. Also would the front seating fit the 4KQ, are the
rails the same?
What a sleeper car this would be? I can dream I guess. I appreciate any
help you guys may offer. I am familiar with what fits what in the VW
partsbin, but pretty darned ignorant in the Audi partsbin department.-G
