Just happen to have last month E.C. handy - here's the ad:
"Bolt-on variable valve timing for VW 8V, Audi 10V Turbo/NT
and Porsche 924
Increas your engine's HP by 15-20% by automatically advancing
and retarding the camsahft 8' (-3' to +5').
For product literature and dyno test, send $1 and LSASE to:
Attn: George Franco
6693 Alcala Knolls Dr.
San Diego, CA 92111
The punctuation is misleading, but it looks like they only offer
for the turbo Audis. Find out. The ad does not mention cost.
