Nope. I'm pretty sure the MC did. I believe, but i'm not certain, that
all Audi turbos have sodium-filled valves, and none of the NA engines do.
In fact, I know the MC did. The 5k Bently tells you how to dispose
of them properly(it's not exactly a chuck-in-the-can item, given sodium's
ah, volitile, nature. Your garbage man might be one mighty big surprise
if his compactor cracked open one of those puppies.)
