The Red Green show is not a fantasy

Thank you Stevc...

A man after my own heart. How many rolls of Duct Tape(tm)
did you use ?  My vendor also has an 81 Turbo for sale for parts......
I was looking for a cheap and mild performance 
upgrade for those nasty headwinds here in Sask.
I have a feeling that the Quattro group here is 
getting a little conservative in their advancing 
years. I've been driving a modified 21psi CX500Turbo
engine between my legs for the past 6 summers and they 
are wondering about long term engine life ? Not the 
first thing that comes to mind at max boost.

I am starting to wonder if that joke is getting old...
