	I haven't checked appendix A for your 4000CSQ, but the rules 
state that you may update/backdate parts from any car that is on the same 
line in the appendix that classifies your car.  For example, in my '94 
rulebook, in Appendix A, under D-Street Prepared, you will find that "Audi 
4000 5-cylinder (all)" is on one line, indicating that you may update 
backdate any parts from any Audi 4000 that came with a 5-cylinder 
engine.  They also state that the engine must be swapped as a unit, and 
the transmission must be swapped as aunit.  This makes the updating rule 
very interesting.

See above, the V8 or 20V would be illegal.  The torsen would be legal, 
beacuse diffs are free as long as they fit the housings without modification.

YOu can't put a turbo in it at all, unless Audi imported a turbo 4000 
with a 5-cyl engine.  The EFI is definitely the way to go, but we already 
talked about that:-)

Of all the parts that are allowed to be changed to aftermarket stuff, you 
may custom manufacture those pieces, but the original car may not be 
changed to allow installation of an aftermarket part.  There are 
exceptions to this also of course.
