Re: Audi Cabrio (was: memorial day, small towns, and Audis.)
Sorry guys, I misunderstood the questions. Kim Collins cab definately
*DOESN'T* have the V-6. It is an S2-esque type motor. The stock US-Spec
Cab's has the 2.8...
Jim - I kind of liked the wood Nardi wheel in Kim's car. Thought it might
look nice in my 91 CQ with the wood shift knob, wood trim, etc...
Elliot - RE: Large HP gains from the 2.8. The only car I know of that has
a significantly (aftermarket) modified 12v 2.8 is a rally car which was
owned by Sakis Hadjiminas. Sakis apparently twin-turbo charged an a Audi
2.8 in a 90 "sport" quattro for something like 325HP! (see
http://www.180sportsclassics.com/race/sakis.htm - although unfortunately
there's no longer any info on the twin-turbo 90Q up there. Perhaps you
could e-mail him?) The car was featured in European Car "personals" about
two years ago, with a couple of sentences, and that's all I know about the
car. I sure would like to know more though. With all of the 2.8's running
around out there I would think that a twin-turbo "upgrade" would be *very*
marketable. Given that all other mods that I researched for the two 2.8s
that I owned only would result in maybe a 20-30 HP gain.
>BTW, does the Cab still have the V6 in it?
