This is my 1987 Flatty intercooled with a 5 speed and 5 lug  w/LSD swapped out of a 88tsi. Got her running again after some exhaust manifold work so thought I'd share some photos.

Future plans include wideband, safc-ii, fuel system overhaul, and a new coat of paint.

Correction, its an 86 rear end wink.gif  Man I miss that car  lol  Its definitly in good hands so I'm happy about that.  I saw you drive by yesterday, I heard the car and knew it was you before I even saw you.  That thing has such a unique tone.... love it  BTW, I have a V-AFC if your interested, I know otheres have ran them with success but with my MPI I dont think I'll be needing it any longer.

I was just out for an evening drive, and was actually looking to see if you were out and I have never heard the car drive by because I'm always in seat.  BTW the new driveway looks awesome, is it almost ready to get covered in oil stains?

Is the V-AFC a black or a blue unit? I have a line on a black SAFC.

Tires are 205/55/R16 with 7" wide wheels, I belive they are a 2" drop on the springs i don't remeber for certain, I'm sure Andy will know and chime in.

Anyhow since I haven't seen the poor girl in 2 weeks I'll post a couple more pics.

are the AREs the same offset as factory Monty?  I was not able to fit 8"s in the rear with these springs... although they had 245/45s on them.  But rolling the fenders gains loads of room back there if need be.  There realy is nothing cooler than a lowered flatty, man i miss that car.  lol

Good luck on the 5 lug swap, I think the flatties rock on these wheels. Here are a few more pictures of the first time I took the conquest out to the local drags at the airport.

Thats a 90AWD Talon tsi, 93 Talon FWD w/ turbo swap, and the conquest before the races.



Myself and the 93 lining up for my first drag race.


He got me by a car and a half, but I'm gonna blame the driver of my car and a boost leak. Can't wait for spring to run them again.

MK1 Short Throw to be installed.
MK1 rear camber plates
I installed Cosmo Coils last summer but I want to reinstall them with the exhaust tubing for shims instead of the o-rings.
home alignment

Powerslot Rotors
Porterfield Pads
SS Lines
Front caliper rebuild kit

New Mitsu Diff, TTube, Trans and Engine mounts
Mitsu Fuel Filter

Build new hard pipes
Different OEM intercooler-mine leaks
Build strut bars

-AN Turbo coolant line
4used-205/55/r16 Bridgestone Pole positions to be mounted.


New to me front seats

Its gonna be a long few weeks.

Ahh so you bought them.  Good deal there.  

Sounds like I'm going to have my work cut out for me in SM when I start autoxing again.  IF your feeling saucy I have steeringboxes from TWIs to throw in your car as well.  Complete the transformation 100% then
