RE: A4 1.8T vs Neon?

Curious equation that: 150hp == "wimpmobile"...

Non-turbo Audis have not exactly been fountains of power in the past and
that's been with much more weight than the A4 1.8T (witness the mid-80's
non-turbo 100s which had, what?, 102hp to lug around 3500+lbs of car.

It's not in the total power, but rather in how it's implemented that you
need to look. There, and in the fact that with a turbo, 200hp is just a
(fairly) small dip in the wallet away and 300 is reasonably attainable.
