Agreed, I'm sure lots of Audi engineers know better than I, but it is
interesting that it took them 10 years to move the aux rad there, on my UrQ
it sat right in front of the tbelt.

That's just what I am trying to see.  I don't think the Sport Qs had an aux
water rad and it pushed alot harder than most street 20V's, of course the
oil coolers got pretty big.
