RE: quick turbo question (fwd)

 Would it make more sense to use factory parts for this venture? My
mechanic buddy harped on about this many times while I built my
Scirocco. He always reminds me that the factory spent 10s of millions of
dollars researching this stuff. In the case of Audis, there is no
shortage factory turbo parts.
 If I'm missing an important point here don't hesitate to point it out
to me.
