Audi 4000 Turbo quattro Conversion
|I waited as long as I could
before actually taking the car off the road. Despite this total
project taking a rather long time I want to minimize the time the car is
off the road. Most of you familiar with this type of conversion
will recognize the surgery that had to occur to the front of the car to ease engine removal. I removed the engine with the down pipe attached so I also had to drop the
sub frame. It is rather sad that
this same year VW Golf had an unboltable front radiator support, but
the upscale Audi did not. The rags hanging there are because I
got tired of catching my T-shirts on the corners of cut metal. Fortunately
I never caught myself on it.
I would strongly recommend making the brackets to reattach the front
grill support before cutting. This way the holes are sure to line
up when the time comes. Plus by the time I was ready to put it on
the last thing I wanted to mess with was little brackets.
