Hey folks, newbie to the SQ world here. Got a smoking deal on a 88 Conquest TSI and have always been keen to them. I started my car obsession out at 14 by trading a dirt bike for an 83 Datsun 280ZX Turbo. I'm now 24 and on vehicle #30. I have modest goals with the Conquest, just want a good cruiser with around 280-300 horsepower. I was pleased to find an EGR delete, non jet head, and head stud conversion while replacing a terribly leaking valve cover gasket too. I know this car has some work into it, and now I just need to uncover it all!

It's got a few bumps and bruises around her, I'm sure that dent will pop out with some motivation ;)

And thanks!

Thanks man!

Just ordered some wheels to roll on while I send my fronts out to get repaired and polished. Also discovered I've got a high flow cat! I wish I could find the PO who built it and figure out all the things that have been done

Yeah that had to be a sqc member's car.  Note the NJV cylinder head and also the intake rockers were replaced with exhaust side rocker arms without the ear for the jet valves.   Also, I believe you have a different camshaft based on the purple paint seen the photo.  Not sure if that is a Schneider, tep, or what...but it isn't stock.

Welcome aboard!  The car looks great!

What a great car to get initiated with!  Is this your 30th car or 31st?  I don't think I had 30 pairs of shoes by the time I was 24! :) :D
