Re: 4000 turbo quattro in Texas


Hope you are talking an engine swap and not a turbo bolt-on for Rich.
Turbo engines have lower compression heads (hence the "turbo lag" as
they have less HP than a standard engine before turbo kicks in). I have
heard some new car manufacturers (Saab) are using Low Pressure Turbos
(LPT's) to eliminate the need for this. Actually have been fantasizing
about a bolt-on of two LPT's for my '90 V8Q (once the extended warranty
expires). Have you heard of anyone getting this done?
