I would have to agree. You arent going to be able to get that
kinda boost into an engine with that much compression
already. BUT I seem to remember seeing a bolt on kit for the
VW VR6... If I remember correctly it was really low boost.
Something like 4psi. Sure, its not going to give you an extra
150 HP, but it could in theory give you 50-75HP. Add in an
exhaust.. and yes.. You should have an S4 with just over
400HP. But I guess we need to convince the right people to
build us this kit. APR? what do you think?
