A4 1.8T

After chatting with Dan Masi and Schaumburg Audi, I now have a better
understanding of what's going on with the A4 1.8T.  Many of you
probably know all this, but here goes.

The 1.8T is an entry level A4 with a four cylinder turbo engine.  It's
cheaper than the standard six cylinder A4 by virtue of being delivered
with a lower trim level (no leather or wood, for example.)  It has
about 150HP, vs about 200HP for the (normally aspirated) six.

But in that it's a turbo, it can easily be chip tuned!  Sounds like you
could readily bring it above the six cylinder engine for way less than a
grand, and for a few grand you can probably approach 300HP.
