I like the guage/diff lock setup!
What pistons are you running?

Very nice car man! You did a really nice job on that engine, it looks so clean. Did you port the head at all? How does it run? Looks good!

Very very nice, I like this alot. I think its awesome that you kept the JT engine. Nothing wrong with the stock powerplant at all. I would like to do something similar at some point.

Nice job with the seats too, those are nice!

:stupid: Awesome car! Very tasteful mods! I think the only thing that would make this better would be if it was an '84.

Looks really nice. I like the factoy guage pod down where the locker switch used to be, so many people try to make a guage pod and it looks "off", yours looks great.

insanely sick. thats something I've always wanted to do. but money wise an mc1 is a cheaper swap.

Only thing I would do differnently is start with like an NG. just for that extra boost in power.

and maybe some headerwrap all over the EM and whatnot just to keep the temps a little down.


very sick car. keep it updated!

sick Sick SICK! I love it. Simple. Clean. Effective. Keep us posted on progress!!! I may have to copy the diff lock panel idea too. I really think it looks way better than most setups I have seen. So clean... arg. I want mine done now!

Awesome thanks for the info. Next time I see the right diff panel I am going to do the same thing. I have been struggleing over putting gauges in the vent location. Your solution is perfect for what I am going for, plus it will also rid me of those pesky electronic oil and volt meters.

Oceanic for the win! Now as long as he goes with sprint blue he will have the nicest hahaha... Although, right now my 4kq is in shambles. :(

JT4K do you happen to know what audi your diff lock switch panel came out of?

LOL yah ....... he helped talk me down from my EFI ledge......... Maybe this is the wrong site to say that.... but yah CIS is a good thing once you get it right. Still may go EFI someday though.

It wont be red for long. I will leave the nicest red 4k to you :wink: I just want the nicest Sprint Blue 4k :-)


EFI isnt a bad thing at all. I guess what I was trying to explain is that going EFI only when CIS isnt running right or something is a bad reason to "just go EFI".

I appluad any and all who use EFI, believe me, it just takes careful tuning and patience to not blow anything up :) Someday I'll venture there, but not unless I have a dedicated car for it. I doubt Id run a 4ktq daily on EFI, but who knows.

Love this project though, keeping tabs on this one for sure. 8)
