My friends are German car enthusiasts (BMW's, Porsche's, VW's, and Audi's), 
and they are encouraging me to drill big holes in the airbox on my 86 4kcs 
quattro. My friend did it on an 86 GTI Golf and swears it made a difference

out at about 8 seconds (stock car, about 48 degrees, high humidity, at
