RE: Water cooled turbo conversion-ur-quattro

Hey List,
I think there might be a simple way to upgrade to a K24.  I believe that
the 83 dasher used an oil-cooled K24.  Go to: 


Should (no BTDT here) bolt straight into any pre-86 turbo, no water line
conversion.  And it is probably REAL cheap if you can find a used one.
I know, I know, the virtues of a WC turbo and all.  This could be a real
cheap upgrade ($100?), as opposed to the WC option ($1,200+ turbo; ,
water lines $200+).  Any BTDT's?
