91tqw v. PstG60 Syn?

Have been lurking on the Passat list for just a couple days...
Some interesting notes, 
(1)  Canada imported some 300 1992 & 1993 Passat Synchro wagons with
the G60 Corrado engine.
One lister claims his version has 220bhp!
Likely this car could give the 200tqws a run for the money.
(2)  Granted the engine is IMO lesser than the 20vt, but at its
weight, smaller size and ugly as sin aerodynamics it could be pretty
dern quick with that type of bhp.  Original spec shows I think
160bhp.  Still kicks my 115hp out of the water!
(3)  Some are suggesting use of Peanut Butter on the black exterior
trim pieces.  This is to remove any accidental wax residue on the
plastic.  No definite word on whether Natural or Skippy is better
(4)  Some listers are complaining about the volume of
traffic...sometimes up to 40~50 posts per day.  Nudge, nudge, wink,
wink ;^).
86 VW Qtm Syn (needs strut help ASAP)
