I do hope you all realize that TAP has at least three different "Sport
IC" designs, including the double-pass for the the 5kt/200, a
single-pass replacement for the S4/S6 cars and a larger single-pass
design for the stock location on ur qs. I believe they also have the
numbers that show that their S4/S6 outflows the stock IC.  That says
nothing about efficiency of course.  There are a few S car owners on the
S list that have these.  Why not ask their opinions?

Not a plug for TAP by any means, just trying to clear up some
misunderstandings I see...
