RE: Turbo/wastegate questions - K24, WG Spring etc.

I got rough about $400 from Scott last Spring.  If I'd have know it would be
more like $200 I would have considered it.

I may be a cheapskate with my AUDI(according to Click & Clack), but not that

You know folks, Scott Mo.'s 86 - 88 chip and spring upgrade is only like (or
was) $210 bux installed.  It is THE best money I've ever spent on a
automotive mod.  No new turbo necessary, and it is done right, like the
Factory would do (or maybe not depending on your opinion of Audi...)
