Well, the Bentley for the '84-87 Coupe and Quattro does have wiring diagrams
that include the '84 and '85 models of the QTC. I have included a copy of my
"standard" documentation for the ur-quattro other than the Bentley.  Scott
Mockry has another document I've always contemplated which is available on
microfiche (W42 552 140 F  1984 - 1987 Audi 4000, Coupe, Quattro Turbo
[service manual]).  I suspect it is the same as the Bentley, but I don't
know for sure.  I always recommend anyone interested in what documentation
is available to check Scott Mockry's website
...(http://www.teleport.com/~scottmo/techlit.html) in this instance.  
  <<ur-quattro "IST" Documents>> 
I looked through the Dyment book and saw W42 501 135 1, which states that it
includes wiring diagrams for the 1980-85 4000 and Coupe ... I don't know for
a fact, but it probably has the '83 QTC wiring.  

Keep in mind that in many ways the wiring diagrams provided by Audi for the
ur-q are often suggested wiring ... you may find that the car is wired
slightly differently ... but at lest you can get a feeling as to what they
were trying to do ... :-)

Well, I got my order in from Dyment Distribution yesterday ... so now I can
positively confirm that it is possible to get the original "IST" documents
for the Quattro Turbo Coupe from them.  I had made copies for people in the
past because I did not think they were available, but from now on as long as
Dyment has them I'll refer folks there.  Dyment can be contacted at
(800.544.8021).  Here is the order information:

Order #
WSP 451 556 00 - Audi Quattro Introductory Service Training Manual
WSP 452 557 00 - Audi Quattro Maintenance and Adjustments Manual

FYI, the former document gives a good overview of the systems of the car
(engine, brakes, drive train, etc.) ... with a good bit of theory of
operation, while the latter document describes things like torque specs and
troubleshooting procedures (like what to do when your fuel pump shuts down
at 4000 RPM :).  These documents go into such detail as to describe the
timing and boost maps that are programmed into the F/TCU.  I can't seem to
remember the price exactly, but I think it is either US$10 or $15 each.  

As I mentioned before, they also happen to have owners manuals for just
about every car out there ... so if you always wanted one for your car (as I
did for the '85 4kSQ) you can get it from Dyment.  I also picked up one for
an '85 QTC ... wishful thinking I suppose.
