     Surely you jest!  Is the cat removed?  I don't think IA claim more than 15
     hp for their computer mod.

     Kir-b  This car is quicker 0-60 than My UrQ.  This car would runcircles 
     around your 90 series also.  Got a pink slip to put on the line?
     Buh bye.


Perhaps I was unclear.  My 90qs are hardly rip-snorting, although they might be 
_IF_ they had twice the hp.  In fact they are barely tolerable, acceleration 
wise.  As you quoted the same 130 hp for your coupe as my 90s are supposed to 
have, I was unable to see how you could call yours rip-snorting unless you were 
being sarcastic. 

I thought Ur-qs were turbocharged to levels higher than 130 hp.  So, just what 
equivalent engine hp do you think you have.  And how did you get there from the 
basic, 130 hp engine.  Inquiring minds want to know.
