While some desire the "Real McCoy", a hybrid turbo may appeal to others too.
Javad, I think mentions one on his <A HREF="http://www.80tq.com">www.80tq.com</A> &<A HREF="http://www.034efi.com/">
</A>h<A HREF="http://www.034efi.com/Hybrid_turbos.html">ttp://www.034efi.com/Hybrid_turbos.html</A> sites. I mention this from memory
since the vendors list is down at audifans.com.. Other options abound.
Please note the hybrids at 034efi, refer to 10V applications and "may" vary
in 3B and AAN applications.
I have no "affiliation" with Javad other than posting on the 10V list and an
EM purchase, which incidentally, saved me $$$ on work done to my prior Avant
I have purchased parts from all three vendors listed.
As I understand it, matching the components would be critical to any turbo
Generally, both the IM and EM would need to be changed to maximize the gains
from the turbo: which ever you choose.
Other Audi lister sites may be able to hook you up too. Here's the specs of
the turbos at <A HREF="http://www.sjmautotechnik.com/turboparts.htm">http://www.sjmautotechnik.com/turboparts.htm</A>
Good luck in your GP and the pricing issue.

Who knows if there are more middlemen.
