Well, just last week I sold my 1990 200 TQ 20V.  I discussed upgrades for it
with my wife and she pretty much siad NO.  I then asked her if I sold the
car if I could use all the money for the sale on another car and she said
    After a lot of thinking and searching I located a 1989 CQ 20V (German
Spec).  I am paying the equivalent of $900 for it.  It ahs a few things
wrong with it that I know of for sure.  #1. The engine is bad.  They can't
tell me what is wrong, but they say it is bad.  #2. The front edge of the
hood has been sanded and covered with Gray Primer (The car is black)  #3.
The passenger side rear Taillight is cracked and the body has a small dent
under the light.
    As far as the engine goes, I have located someone over here that has a
1.8T that is already installed in a Type 89 chassis.  He has wrecked the
car, but wants to sell the engine, wiring harness, and computer for around
$2000 delivered.  He even said he would help with the install.  He says the
engine is putting out around 230 HP.  I have also located a few used 7A
engines for about 1/2 to 1/3 of that price.
    Has anyone on the Coupe list ever done this swap?  What is everyone's
opinion on this installation.  I do have pictures of the wrecked car with
the engine still installed if anyone is interested.
