No, but I've heard of someone taking a turbo and
mainfold off of a say 81 5000T and putting it on a 4000S
with minor mods and getting 20+ HP this is what I would
like to do, I just want some sort of boost! 100HP
Sux! But... I still love my Audi. My friend won't race me in
his RX7 anymore (he's tires of losing) I think he doesn't know
how to race (actually I know!) But that's ok it makes my car look
better when I beat him!
