The hedged answer is we think so.  I'm running it as
well as others, including Javad's 290whp 10V 80q.
But I am not liking the stock 01A gearing at all
with the turbo motor.  80mph @4000RPM and holding
steady highway speed is problematic.  Barely 21mpg on 
highway I think would be 25 with taller gears.  
Gearing really needs to be taller with the turbo 
motor.  So I am lusting after a 6spd. but also 
considering 5spd. 01E options as well.
What do the rest of you already driving your 
conversions think?
