RE: quattro-digest V3 #845

I don't believe "totally impractical" has ever deterred many people on
this list from trying something that will give an extra, what, 60hp or
so :-)

Ah yes, the Coupe S2 - 220hp @ 5900rpm. I have some specs here that say
catalytic convertors were installed for the US market - odd that it
arrived.  I suppose it would be totally impractical to attempt to
