RE: 1989 Quattro 90 engine Problems - Lifters??

I would definitely do all the lifters while you have the cam out.  What kind
of premium are you speaking of? I got (normal?) lifters about a year ago for
$12 US$ each.  Of course doing this myself made the job more economical
(duh)   ;^).
I also believe the lifters to be very sensitive to the viscosity of oil you
are using as well as the oil level.  I use Mobil1 10-30 and the engine is
quiet until I get about 2/3 of a quart low, then it starts to complain.
Hope that helps,
