Who did the swap?
I have a black 90 corrado that has a complete 1.8t 20v swap!!! All of the obd2 was swaped in to it to and the car runs great!!! The motor was a brand new crate motor w/ 0 miles and I only put has about 2500 miles on it because I stop driving it daily after the swap!!!
All of the other stuff is:
-carbon fiber hood
-impros head lights and tail lights
-ottinger body kit w/ front grill and a extra front valance unpainted
-Momo: steering wheel/peddles/nob
-costum sounds (fiberglass 4 10's encloser) worth 3k
-weitech suspensions and springs
-costum GReddy front mount intercooler
And the parts list goes on and on and on!!! I am just at the point that I am not going any further with this project and it's been sitting around, needed someone to drive it and put more time into it!!!!!
So, if your local and interested or have any questions, give me a call (18185723792) or text!!!!
Asking: $5500 (motor swap was 7k alone)

RIP 1.9L Lysholm Corrado (I8AVR6) and your Turbo charged sister (TRBRADO) 68 Baja and 64 slammed standard. Too many GTi's to count..
Over the past few years this thing constantly keeps popping up on Craigslist... Either it keeps selling over and over again because somethings majorly wrong with it, or the owner just keeps changing his mind every few months. When I first saw it listed way back when I had messaged the guy and he claimed that he did the swap himself, and used a crate 1.8t motor, with an s3 ecu that he got from germany. He also said that he painted all that piping black to try helping it pass SMOG. Idon't know, but maybe it'd been red-flagged or something by a SMOG ref? Would be nice to get some answers though...
