Audi 4000CS Turbo

   Does anyone have any ideas on turbo charging a Audi 4000.  I'd like
   to add a turbo to my '87 4000CS Quattro.  I thought the turbo from
   the sibliing Quattro coupe could be bolted on.  My local Audi
   mechanic pointed out that new Audi part would make this project to
   expensive and that used part from salvage would be to 1) to risky
   and 2) to hard to find.  He declined to do the research nessasary
   for this project.

   Has any one heard of a aftermaket kit?

I'm not sure that you want to add a turbo charger on your car without
looking at the other parts of your powertrain (transmission,
differentials, joints, etc.).  I had that idea before and I was
advised by a mechanical engineer friend that it would be more than
just installing a turbo charger.  I didn't further investigate doing
it; I ended up buying a factory turbocharged car.

Let me know if you actually go through with your project.
