Arrg.  Early turbos are not water cooled.  Water cooled.  Water cooled.

Funny part is, I stopped myself from saying "all post-86 cars are water
cooled", because I remembered that the A4 turbos aren't...and had oil
coking problems. Right?

And bob...I would suggest you not take out the after run circuit unless
you have a really good reason, it is important(Audi felt so, enough to
continue putting it in cars for quite some time.)

PS:make sure you get the orientation of the pump right..I remember Phil
mentioning that the pump works opposite of normal coolant flow. We may
have been discussing the 3B/RR specifically, so I don't know if it
applies to your swap(dunno what engine you're swapping either.)
