	I'm sure everyone else will tell you this, too -- the
	best engine to put in there would be the 20V I-5 turbo
	(engine code 3B, found in '91 200Q's and later S4/S6 models,
	also in European S2's). You'll then essentially have an
	S2, which many lusters list after (!) and Audi forgot to
	import to the US.

	But a 3B from a wreck is a pretty expensive beast: didn't
	someone here mention $5-6K?
