Woah woah, what are you talkin' about? There's no strange thinking needed to
justify any of your (or my) stuff. You needed new injectors, and a fuel
filter, so you put EFI on....Your exhaust manifold was cracked so you built
your own (for less than a new Audi piece I bet) Your shocks were worn out,
so you installed coilovers, you needed new brake pads so you put on some big
honkin' ones.......You don't need to justify anything, You've just got a
whole bunch of replacement parts on that car...

There is a 12v 90 at the pick and pull right now, and boy I'm really
tempted! I bet I could mix and match a whole bunch of VAG parts and end up
with a cheap low compression bottom end...OTOH, maybe I ought to finish some
other projects first.....
