The airflow around the ur-quattro's IC is pretty well channeled.  There
_is_ a foam issue, between the IC and the right side of the air dam.
This piece was omitted by Wayside Bodyshop when they fixed my car
early in the year.  The 'other' end of the airflow channel is the
right wheel well, which I've always been accustomed to considering a
low-pressure area.  A lot of the ur-quattro's aifflow cross section
seems to be blocked by the air hose.

I might well take the thing off and have a look this wekend.
