 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...
