Default 15 months and God only knows how many hours of my time......


.....and the 4kq turbo project started and ran this weekend. A quick whiff of ozone, and a little gas and oil, and the damn thing fired up. Ran it for a while, let the RS2 cooling fan cycle a few times, and shut her down. I've got to bleed the brakes and align the shift linkage and I'll be on my way.

Thanks to all the ususal suspects. Eric, Chris, Mark, Frank.....and my wife for putting up with the maddness. The projects never end.

Default Sweet!

I have GOT to see this thing. I need some motivation for my own turbo project. What days are good for you? My weekends are booked up (Sunday after 5 would be ok) but my weekdays are pretty open late in the afternoon. Roughly how far do you live from the Outlet mall?

Default It came off my urS4 that I bought from Sewickely back in 1996

When the S4 got euro taillights the frame no longer fit.

The guys at Sewickely Car Store treated my well and I wanted to continue to get them a little "press" and luckly the Treser lights on the 4kq were built for use in Switzerland where the plate size is the same as the US. On the 4k it went!
