I really like that bumper! What exactly is it called? (I'm new to this car still...)

What made you get another 90?

The bumper is just a European spec Coupe front bumper, not s2, not cabrio. They are relatively cheap, but shipping costs 3-4x what the bumper will cost you.

i should have the rs2 headlights on it by friday so come out for lunch and check it out!

AWESOME. My 14 year old son has decided he wants a 90 as his first car. I guess I should start looking for one!

Not a bad choice for a first car. You should start watching now, although there are quite a few out there, the good ones are very few and very far between!

Looks great, nice paint.
How is it like going from a modified coupe to a vanilla 90q?

Besides better MPG you might not gain much depending on which engine you are going to swap.

The 180HP version only had 173T so basically the same as the 2.8

The 225HP version though has 207T so a nice little bump.

It doesn't feel anything like the coupe, but it is fun in its own way.

The swap isn't to get better MPG, and in your HP/TQ numbers you are making an assumption that i'm leaving the engine stock. While I might swap it over stock to begin with, to make sure everything is working proper, i will certainly be going with a built bottom end and bigger turbo in the future.

I never figured you would drop in a 1.8 just as it is.
Sure with time and money it can be tuned fairly well.

Least as I read unlike the 2.7 which has to be yanked to replace the turbo[s]
the 1.8 should not have to be.

I was not aware, so if you can round up motor mounts then a 1.8 should fit without too much hassle in a B4 chassis?

Last I recall the cab ended in 1998 in the US so it lived on longer in Europe?

A 1.8 (20 valve) but no turbo.
