Body Panels

06 October 2019 - 07:32 PM

Not sure if this is being posted in the correct section, if so, mods please move to correct section.

doing a quick glanceover of my soon to be project i noticed rust under the paint on the driver rear quarter, my question is, are replacement panels/panel sections still available for the widebody variations of this car? if so is there a link to a website where?

need dash switches around gauge pod, both sides.

Hello fellow starquesters.

well, i FInally pulled my black quest out of it's spot this last weekend and stuck it in my dads shed, after over 10 years, i've moved it, just took a 2500HD with an 8.1L and 4 low to pull it out. so i could then air up the front tires.

However when putting the box of wiring harnesses i bought from a fellow member into the car i noticed both switches on left and right side of my gauge bezel where missing some buttons ( buttons where present before) my ECM was sitting on the seat... and the passenger ECM cover is missing and the kick panel was down,  and my never installed, not made any more, Racetep  lowering springs and tokico shocks for the rear where also now missing. SOOO little mad, since that kit isn't available anymore.

But baby steps, looking for functional switch assemblies for both sides of the gauge bezel. and a functioning HVAC control panel.  

if you have modified ones for blue glow with lights on i'll take it. as it's going to match the interior mods.  PM me or reply with price.

Compatible valve springs question.

27 May 2019 - 08:45 PM


This question is going to be a bit more for the older guys on the forum.

i know the installed height requirement for valve springs in 1.600, and the coil bind should be below 1.000

however where my question begins now is, what is the maximum diameter of the outer springs? as i have found some crowers with a 1.275 outer diameter coil bind @ .955 and  a 338lb/in pressure rating, which should be better than the schneider dual springs.

has anyone else ran crower valve springs? or any other valve spring with this outer diameter or larger without a need for machining the head?

Harnesses for 86 Conquest

08 March 2019 - 06:05 PM

Long story short.

About 15 years ago i acquired a 1986 Conquest Tsi, And one day i had an unfortunate incident that cause the harness to catch fire after i was done driving the vehicle, it has been parked ever since and now that i'm older and in a better position, i feel it is time to try to resurrect it.  

the bad thing is i'm not sure at this moment what all harnesses where affected, and i don't have immediate access to the car at this time to check it,

i do know the harness on the firewall that goes to the MAP sensor ( along with any wires ran with it) on the 86 is toast, as well as the engine harness regarding where the injectors are, i also have a damaged wire from the relay/fusible link area   that i think caused the whole mess from being frayed and increasing resistance.

So i'm throwing this out as a feeler to see if anyone may have harnesses available so I can bring this car back from the dead.
