Re: s3 details, rs2 mods
the delta s4 group b rally car was mid-engined and included both a
super-charger and a turbo. a bit troublesome in practice, but quite capable of
winning the odd group 'b' rally ;-)
that engine was not the one to go into the integrale. this was basically the 2
litre turbo from the original delta with some other bits added. over it's
lifetime gained 16v (the integrale 16v), and then went into the integrale hf,
and then the integrale evo.
the later models stayed around 210hp, early version had 180hp.
not too sure what you've seen with a rear engine, unless you're talking about
the lancia monte carlo? now that had some semblance to the legendary 037
stratos which walter rohrl used to beat the early audi quattros...
