Re: 4000 turbo conversion advice


>     THe 4k turbo Quattro is a couple hundred pounds lighter.

Only the stock 4kq is lighter by 200 lbs.The turbo motor adds weight: turbo,
exhaust (extra bits), oil cooler, intercooler etc.

By removing air conditioning and changing bumpers to Euro you could get the
Ur-q to weigh as much as the stock 4kq.  Look at the Euro specks I posted
from the Euro Ur-q test drives.
There it weighs ~2800lbs which is exactly as much as a stock US 4kq!
