:hopping: UP ...

Does anyone have info over the following setup :

M56 gearbox and B4194T/T2 engine (from S/V40 T4) under the hood of a 480 ?
I'm almost certain a 5 cylinder wouldn't fit but how about the 4 cylinder 1.9L 16V turbo from the X40 ?

If you got it from Holland, let me know, I live at 25 km from the dutch border. If you could post some explanations and pictures of the differents steps t...

Anybody got a reference for theses rear bearings ? I have a 88 turbo with no ABS and can't find one. Worse is that the partsbook doesn't even mention theses bearings but if I can manage to get a reference number, I'll be able to get one, even straight from SKF factory ... So far, I've been told to c...

Rat-look won't be nice for a 480.
An old 142 or an 121 amazone will kick ass styled like the first VW.
