are there any Quantum TD fans out there? I have a 1983 4 door sedan that I am restoring to original factory condition. Almost ready for the road. Wondering about running it with a boost gauge instead of a wastegate.

I am a fan, but only because I inherited one from my father when he pasted on, along with a stable of Dashers and rabbits. I had a caddy running for long time and I loved it. I thought it was quick, well once I turned up the fuel pump. Dad said the Quantum TD was the only VW diesel he could peel out in( think he was joking, but I don't know as I have never driven it).

The early B platform cars are great. My Fox (BX) is very similar to the B2 cars, particularly the front. My diesel conversion was very simple on the Fox because they're so close to being the same.

3 posts, 11 1/2 years apart.... guess not that many fans! Personally, I always loved the old Quantums. Thought they were so much more stylish than the Jettas of the time.
