Since we used the front wheel drive trans' clutch and flywheel, it seems like the crank sensors aren't picking up signal. So I'm ditching audi's ignition and going with an MSD 6al box i picked up on ebay. The car will be running soon and I will post more pics.

Never could get it running. Spend a lots of hours going through lots of steps trying to figure out why it wouldn't get spark but never could figure it out. That was long ago. Now its in the junk yard never to be resurrected again... sad story.

No I don't think its been touched. but this particular salvage yard turns in their titles to deer lodge so it can't ever be registered again.

I've done it. Missoula auto salvage sent my tittle to a scirocco in to dear lodge after I bought and deemed it crushed. Big ordeal and lots of paper work but it could happen

I've thought about getting it back, but there are cleaner coupes out there and I could always pull parts off it. Those guys never crush anything.
