1.8 v. 2.8

I've seen a great deal of discussion on this topic and wanted to put my $.02 
in.  I am new to the mechanics of Audis, but not Audis themselves.  But when I 
bought my A4q (96) I knew the turbo was arriving a year later, and the 
"mythical" 30 valve v-6 was down the road.  However, I am not a big fan of 
turbos, no matter who makes them, and I know Audi has a long history of good 
turbos, but I still think they stress the engine too much, especially a little 
four.   The natural breathing engine was just, I don't know, better off in the 
long term for me.  I know this will generate criticism and comments that I am 
clueless in this matter, but after rebuilding a 2 vavle V-8 in my '67 Vette, I 
know engines (to an extent), just not Audi engines, (yet).
