Great?  Really?  Unless you've extensively modified the engine and 
turbo setup, it's not going to be more than 1 bar. (Factory is 
limited to .8 bar, right?)  Properly done, it'll hold just fine.

Still more expensive, harder to get and harder to replace, compared 
to JB Weld.  Not all of us have junkyard parts at our disposal.  Here 
in Dallas, that's going to have to be shipped in from out of town -- 
no salvage yards with A4s.
