very nice pic of my car at brokedown btw! it was nice seeing you
the quantum turbo parts i need are bolt on.
the pic of the black "elenor" hood is photoshoped but it looks good and more boxy lol so i guess ill be trying to find that piece. today i cut the hood. also my intake pipe finaly came in. so thats hooked up now. and tossed that dumb oil beather and ran a catch can. "rock star" can right now. but i will be putting a "busch" beer can cuz its what i drink and its blue lol
stock motor mounts and subframe. i used windweld in the side mounts and a 80 stiffness front mount from TT. but thats irelevent. same motor mount height. i guess you could relocate and fab up different mounts and use hokey pucks on the sub frame and it should fit. i might try this in the future.
thank you. i have big plans for this car. already with the aba. its faster than the g60 Corrado i used to have. just doesnt handle as good. but that will come in time. when i do decide to lower the engine i think it might help a very little with the handling. im not changing the appearance too much. want it to perform and look clean and simple. also i want the most power and perforamce for short $.
82-85 Quantum had turbo D engine, Audi 4k from 82-83.
should have just made or picked up a short-runner or log-style intake manifold instead of butchering your hood
well good luck with the project anyway
How does a rotary work? This one's easy: the magic triangle spins in the peanut and then apex seals come out.

Very nice swap! Here in Brazil there are some Fox's and Gol's with ABA engine...But instead of cutting the hood we use to:
1) Change the intake manifold for a custom one and lower the engine mounts;
2) Put a shim between engine sub-frame and the car body
The both solutions works very well and keep the engine inside engine bay without any issues...
