Just bought my first quantum today. An 82 Quantum Coupe. This is my dream Volkswagen and I have big plans for her. Hopefully I can fit them all in over this winter and spring. I'll be sure to keep everyone updated with progress.
Super pumped on this build. Thanks to JohnBarleyCorn for selling her to me.
Thanks guys, I'm goingto use the stock tranny and keep it inline. I'm going to do bearings and synchro rings so it'll be up to date. And as far as intake, if you mean the manifold I wanna keep the stock one, but I don't think it'll clear the hood without the oil pan hanging down to low. I'm looking into sectioning the Pan and oil pick up but we'll see. I'm going to start pulling the motor next week when I have some time off of work. I'll be sure to post pics.
I'm not sure if you have everything planned out as far as drivetrain is concerned but I believe 034 motorsport may make and adaptor to go from VR6 to 4 cyl. I do know they make an adaptor to go from VR6 to the Audi 5cyl bolt pattern and I believe a flywheel spacer is also available to keep everything lined up.
You've never taken a satisfying dump until you've squatted down somewhere outside during a full moon night on top of a fresh snowfall, with the cool crisp winter air carressing your balls.
Best dump I ever had!
It won't be to bad building the k frame to fit, just have to make the center section a little lower. The oil pan sits level with my frame rails so I'll do something to protect her, but I'm not gonna go crazy low like I did my rado. Might just stance it so I can actually have fun with all that motor.
And the a4 tranny fits perfectly, kinda sucks that it's a hydraulic clutch and the gear box is different. But the I'm not going to have to do custom axles so that's one less headache.
I'm sure you'll do fine engineering the k frame. Did you use a 4 cylinder a4 tranny with an adapter, or a v6 tranny? My future plans is to change out mine for a longitudinal passat tranny. I'm glad to hear that custom axles arnt needed. Are you using the Audi ones, or the original quantum axles?
