I hate to say it, because I'm helping someone put together a PRO-Rally
4kcsq, but I think it's that damn 5th cylinder.  Theoretically, all the
trick stuff being done on the VW's should work on the Audis.  Everything
(enginewise) just has to be longer!  I agree with you, I wash someone were
making the cool parts and hop-ups but apparently no-one is :-(
