Re: 1.8t in4000?

These are also some unfair comparisons.  An Audi GT running 64's at LRP 
must be pretty worked over (suspension, weight reduction...), so it's a 
poor comparison to a stock A4. And I've seen NA 944's run 63's at LRP, and 
944 turbo's get into the 59's.

However, I fully agree the I5 can be much improved from the way it left the 

87 4kq
86 944

PS Anyone who'd like to flex their skills at Lime Rock should sign up for 
EMRA's time trial on November 5th. It's $120 (or less with pre reg) and 
should be a blast. I know a number of VW's will be there.

To whoever wrote this...
You obviously know very little about the in line 5 that Audi produced.
Stretch the poor in line five to 150 hp?  You can get a NA inline5 10v well 
over that with some work, and a 20v is easy to push over 200hp.  Second

With well over 250 hp, how exactly do you plan on driving this fwd monster? 
Last time I checked, EIP turbo VR6's had a nasty habit of breaking the 
driveshafts, which are much beefier than mid eight's audi 4 cyl. action.
Also, ever hear of torque steer?  If not, go drive a late eighties Taurus
SHO.  Or a Camry V6.  Before you concentrate of blowing hp figures, figure
out if you can drive the car with that much horsepower.  At Limerock Park,
CT., stock engined coupe GT's set up to race turn 1:04's.  Which, by the 
is faster than 300+ hp 944 turbos.  Don't believe me?  I'll take you there, 
and you can check it out.  It's also about 15 seconds a lap faster than a
stock A41.8Turbo can muster.

All from an "unstretched poor old 5 cylinder".
