      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.

      That is going to be a sweet engine for that car. What about transmission? I'm definitely interested in how this turns out.

      Cool! Are you going to have to use a different intake?

      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.

      Yes, sorry, meant the intake manifold.

      I didn't know that that transmission would bolt to a VR6.

      Ya, that was my attempt at tactfully asking what the plan was for the transmission...

      I can't speak for him....but I think it'll be worth the wait to see. Of course I do have an extra syncro drivetrain arriving Sunday if he were to go really crazy....

      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.

      Here is a link to the bell housing adaptor for the 5cyl trans

      Hope you don't mind just trying to help.

      Ended up going with a b5 a4 trans, got everything bolted together. Going to put her in the engine bay and start making motor mounts today

      Cool!

      Looks like you used the 034 adaptor?
