Re: 944 engine into quattro? (4k,5k)

Being a 944T enthusiast, until my parents put a stop to that, you can
*easily* add about 70 horsepower for ~$1000. I give an estimate that';s
much, much higher than actual to get cost of ancillaries out of the way.
Stuff like turbo hoses and junk. Think 12's 1/4 mile. A very modifiable
engine, just like the 5 cylinder turbo. Ya gotta know what needs to be
done. It's easier on the 944 because the hp parts are available.
