Oh man I would so love to do something like that!! Find a ur-Q in good
condition with an RS2 motor in it (or put one in if I can find one or
enough parts to make one).
If anyone hears of anything like this, let me know. I've been on this
list for years with several different e-mail addresses...rarely post
I recently got to drive a red '86 Coupe GT 5-spd. and aside from being
severely down on power it was still enough to give me the bug!
Some info about my car:
1998.5 A4Q 1.8T Tip/Sport in Pearl White (149K miles - orig. owner)
- APR EMCS w/FlipSwitch under dash (Stage 1)
- Borla exhaust (second one still hanging on!)
- HyperBoost DV
- AWE A-pillar boost gauge
- Samco silicone vacuum hose to DV, FPR, & boost gauge
- Toyo Proxes 4 (225/50R16) [Not bad..T1-S is better except in snow]
- Valentine One (windshield mounted)
- Sylvania SilverStars
- S4 wheel well liner (intercooler side)
- Syntec 5W-40 (VW/Audi Blend)
Be Smooth. Look Ahead.
