Hey, I'm just curious about what type of setup was being utilized in the
Eagle's while at IMSA?  Was the ignition "bone stock" ?  How about the 
motor, totally stock too?  Last but not least, what type of fuel was 
being utilized, pump gas?  How much boost were you running?
Were the plugs "off the shelf" stock plugs? Stock heat range?

Is the Nippendenso ignition on the Eagles, superior to the Bosch system
on the Audi I5 motors?
