KH engine question

Hey guys,

Anybody know the details on the internal parts of the KH motor used on
'84-'85 5k turbos?  From what I can see of the FA, the piston rods are the
same part nos as those on the MC motors.  Don't know a thing about the
pistons though.  These motors are often looked down on, but I think its
because the stock CIS system is not as easily modified for increased boost.
On the other hand, the 8.3 cr would produced increased low rpm torque for
real world driving.  I would probably not run more than 15 psi on it with an
EFI system.

Thanks for any info,

'83 ur-quattro #302
