Interesting.  That would account for the numbers - Audi seem to have numbered 
several thousand MB engines but only a few hundred MB ur-quattros.  I thought 
the 5k engine was stamped as an MC? 

Several dozen questions immediately arise.  I assume emission controls, and 
therefore OXS sensor and some ECU _other_ than the lambda-less MAC12D.  I would 
be _VERY_ interested in the code from such an ECU.

Magnets stick quite nicely to MB blocks.  It's the blocks that magnets _DON'T_ 
stick to that might be valuable.  There are some out there, somewhere.
