Hmmm ... Maybe there are advantages to US cars
Well Phil ... it is interesting to hear that carbureted cars are still
being sold in the UK. Do they have catalytic converters and does the
carb have feedback mechanisms to control emissions?
The thing that turned me on to Audis was a 1978 Audi Fox GTI. It had
a little 1.6 liter engine that put out 80+HP, thanks to FI. Since it
was rather light it had reasonable performance (for its day). All the
other cars I drove were carburetted and were slugs in comparison, and
most had larger engines! I haven't seen a carb on an Audi since.
(... and if I can't find the 12 mm socket I dropped near the exhaust
manifold of my ur-Q the other day I'll rue the day I bought the Fox)
