Hello All,

This is my first posting but I have been lurking and truely enjoying members
posting for a little while.  Recently I bought a 1991 200 20v from NM and
brought it up to Boulder, Colorado.  This is my third Audi in 2 yrs..  I had
a 90 quattro (sold to father), a 200 10v avant (for sale) and now this car
with 86k miles.  I have a couple of questions for the list:

My wife is wondering why there is such a turnover of vehicles and I respond
that this is the 3b engine and that the 91 200 is a real sleeper and it
'only cost 6700'.  No of this has impressed her and she counters that I have
pumped money into each of the prior Audi's.  I want to check with the list
about the value of the 20v's - did I get a fair price given that I will need
to start replacing aging parts?   The car is completely stock (incl
ufo's)and was owned by two prior owners and seems to be in excellent shape
except for some minor cosmetic wear and tear (eg. a burn hole in drivers
seat from heating element).  There are no service records but the timing
belt was done at 83k.  The car is a joy to drive.

Also I have am having difficulty in testing if full boost is produced.  The
display shows 1.6 under full throttle but too quickly I am approaching 80
and exceeding it.  Should boost be produced more quickly?  How would I get
to see 1.8?  Triple digits when the wife is not in the car? These cars do
not have overboost, correct?

Overall, I am thrilled with finally experiencing the fabled 20v turbo motor.
