90 20V Beginner
Hey guys, I'm looking to tune up my first engine. I picked up an old 1990 20v Quattro about a year ago that had been completely neglected. The car was disgusting and clearly hadn't been cared for whatsoever. Since I was 16 I've dreamed of snagging one of these and fixing it up, so I'm selling my Porsche 944 and diving in. I've spent hundreds of hours on various cars cleaning up and restoring cosmetic problems with my car, but never had much of a chance to do any heavier mechanical work. I'm looking to get the car to 200hp. I was wondering if you guys could help me out with some of my ideas, and any suggestions on tuning up this thing. One draw back is I'm coming on the end of my college career and money is tight so I don't have thousands to drop at once but was hoping to build it up slowly.
First there are holes in both the resonator and the rear muffler, so a new exhaust system is first on my list. I've spent some time reading, and I liked the stuff the royal rogue suggested because of the price. He used 2.5 in system with a Dynomax 24215 for the resonator and a Dynomax 17748 for the rear muffler with no cat. Since its under 100 bucks for the parts, it really appealed to me. He said he loves the sound and saw some performance increases. Do you think its worth spending quite a bit more for a 3' cat back?
After that I was looking to upgrade to the 034 EFI Conversion Injector Kit, Schrick Camshaft, 034 Big MAF Chip, Nology Hot wires, Bag-o-snake headers, and Exhaust Manifold. I was wondering in what order you guys would go about this if on an extended schedule and any other suggestions. Thanks
