RE: Re[2]: 91' 200QT for sale, maybe?

You're right about the size and power of the A4.

If you drove a 2.8, you may have found (like me) that the engine is
wonderfully smooth and quite capable, but just not up to the I-5 20v
turbo in power and delivery. However, the other engine you mention is
the new 4-cyl 1.8 20v turbo which puts out 150hp/150ft lb stock, but can
relatively easily be upgraded to at least 200hp and with effort (and
huge $$$) can go well over 300hp. It's currently not available in a
5-sp, but will be this spring sometime.

Oh, and don't get me wrong about the A8: I'd take one if I could have a
stick or Tiptronic, but that's not going to happen (and not at $65,000
either). BTW, there's somebody advertising Tiptronic conversions for A8s
in AutoWeek.
