      Indeed.
      I don't even have RARB, it was fitted from Period: 0989 - 0991; VIN: F 8A-L-045 001>>*


      My time was ~ 5.40, next quattro was 5.50 and there was a separate class for underage drivers, some kid with his dads Volvo V70 AWD drove 5.30 and it was the only car without studded tyres.

        Legalized the engine swap some time ago. Even managed to pass emissions test, although not cat is installed
        Engine is NG 2.3L with PS 2.0L injection, no catalyst version. No ecu, no lambda, no cat, no carbon canister, only idle speed relay which controls warm up valve. Even igntion timing is controlled with vacuum.
        As the engine doesn't have lambda, then emissions are measured only at idle speed.

          Rough protoype of an engine mount, have to figure out how to cast the whoule mount in on piece and hollow in the inside.
          Mount should be with correct dimensions for using AEB 1.8T and similar on the B3/B4 inline engine chassis.

              Decided to refurbish the rear axle before it is too late.



              Sandblasted, hot-dip galvanization and powder coated. Should be good for the next 60 years






              While at it, decided to also refub the competition's front subframe and one spare reinforced 6 speed subframe.
              The original 5 speed one was rusted through, cut off the mounts and welded them to onto a very good B3 90 subframe.





              Also bought few meters of PUR rods to make new bushings for subframes and wishbones.




              Diff mounts were totally shot.




              Didnt even know these thing existed unitl recently, 1st gen cast wishbone vs. later version, total overkill.

                  Does the hot dip galvanising do ALL of the inside of these subframes? I've got a pair ready to go off and get done, just wanted to see if the bright zinc gets everywhere

                  I will also be painting mine post galvanising, did you use a particular primer before paint? I've heard an acid etch is necessary to stick the paint to the zinc?..

                  Cheers!

                    These were painted in the same factory, right after the dipping.
                    Zinc must be passivated if you plan to paint it. Ask your galvanazing shop if the passivate everything or offer it.
