You must read my post in rec.autos.driving.  It's under "Audi 200TQ
question" I've got some questions there that I would like you to 
clear up.  What kind of mods are you going to do to a Audi for less
than $500?  You can't even buy a stock exhaust for that, much less
a performance one.  That and a exhaust and filter won't gain a sec
in the 0-60 times.  Well, whatever - look at the post and clear this
up, for I just have a hard time understanding where you are getting 
your info, it just seems to extreme.
