Virtually any Audi turbo model can be brought to this performance level or
higher with relatively minor mods.  All it takes is to crank up the boost
level and to prevent the "overboost" protection from cutting the fuel pump
off..  (Granted, there are other considerations, but...)  Considerably less
than US$1,000 will do it handily.  Plus, once this has been done you have
an Audi, not a U-R-A-BUS.
