Yes, exactly. I checked my two prime sources for
period information (Jeremy Walton's quattro book and
Brooklands on quattros). The only relevant reference I
found with a quick squint was that the Euro coupe made
130 and the Euro 80Q made 136 and the difference was
due to the 5-onto-3-into-1 Vs the 5-into-2-into-1 and
that there was no weight penalty for the upgrade.
Also, torque was higher and at a lower RPM with the
5-into-3-into-1 piece. (US-spec coupe was 110HP and
4KQ 115HP, not from those references, from memory)
