Since my 83 Quattro has adjustable boost, I am curious how much this
boost can be increased without requiring computer mods. Does anyone have
any input on this.
Additionally, does anyone know at which boost pressure the computer goes
into "overboost protection mode"?
Finally, My quattro requires distributor cap replacement at less than
700 mile increments to maintain maximum performance. After 1500 miles it
becomes apparent even at idle. My 83 coupe GT also sufferd from rapid
distributor cap wear (Excessive deposits on terminals) but it was not so
rapid as my quattro. Any insights? The wires and coil are new bosch
replacements and I've tried different spark plugs with no improvement.
Also I've tried using low resistance performance (copper core) wires, but
the computer senses something is amiss and promptly cuts power to the
ignition system. (probably preventing me from stupidly damaging my
EXTREMELY expensive computer and/or ignition control unit).
Any insights into these problems would be greatly appreciated.
