<< I'd hoped they'd open the hood on the S1 rally car so I could have a look,
but no such luck.
When I asked them they did, even on the IMSA/GTO car!! The 87 S1 has
what looked like a stock sized wastegate (from a 5kt) mounted before the IC
(which was HUUUUGE!) as a blow off valve. What was really neat was that
instead of blowing off excess boost back into the intake before the turbo, it
dumped it out through a sortof a header into the top of the exhaust header,
back into the exhaust. I belive it was a K33 turbo in there too, with a huge
3.5 or 4" downpipe. The earlier S1 had the dual injector manifold also.
Anything specific you were wondering about?, let me know...
