Scott, and Dave,

	I vote for the 4KCSTQ!!  It's LIGHTER by a long shot.  I've heard 
reports of around 2800 pounds for the AWD 4000 Quattro.  Even if you add 
a few #s with the turbo and intercooler, bigger brakes, etc, it still 
likely will stay below the 3grand mark, so that gives it a distinct 
advantage over the 5KCSTQ.

	I do agree with Scott however, it would be ALOT of work.  But, 
isn't that what we tweekers are made of?

	Scott, you and I both know that all it will take is ONE little 
4KCSTQ that whips your 5K butt to get you to take drastic measures.  I 
can't wait to see what happens:-)  :-)  :-) :-)

	This 4KCSTQ thing is quite an interesting twist to the balance of
power:-)  I know of a few Talon AWDs that turn sub 12 sec quarters with 
3100# and a decent 2 litre, and the right turbo - Imagine a 2900# 4KCSTQ 
with a 2.2 turbo!!  I see low 12s, maybe even 11s.
