Wow wee.  Are you sure you want to spend that kind of time and money on a
2WD car?  I assume that by NQ you meant non-quattro.  Please tell me it's
not an automatic.  That would last maybe 2 days. If you do the 20vt swap
yourself it will probably cost you between $6-8K and end up with a car that
will just spin the front wheels.  If you are interested in a fancy engine
swap I would suggest in starting with a different car.

Hello all, this is my first time so just let me know if I do anything wrong.

I own an '88 90 NQ 5cyl.  I was trying to decide whether to swap a 10vT or a

20vT into my car.  I have figured out that the 10v will drop in with very 
little difficulty.  The only downfall being CIS.  This is the limiting 
factor on HP, correct?  I was wondering how difficult it would be to put a 
20vT into the car.  I know they came with a 20v NA on some models, but, I 
heard that some of the components on the engine were different?  If you 
could help me with this or tell me where I could find more info, I would 
greatly appreciate it.
