Q-talk 160 - Reg Clarke - 150 HP Turbo Subaru Installation

by Reg Clarke

[ EDITOR'S NOTE: Reg Clarke from Canada may be very short on words, but he is certainly a prolific picture taker and documentor of his beautiful, highly modified Q2. He sent me nearly 100 images of his mods, and because that is too many pictures for a single page to load easily, broke the pictures up into separate articles over the last few newsletters.

In this issue we'll see how he installed the 150 Cubic Inch 150 HP Turbo Subaru.

He also wanted to let everyone know that this bird is now FOR SALE! If you have specific questions about purchasing this beautiful Q please contact Reg via e-mail at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ]
