   Thanks for the reply- sounds like a good setup.  Mebbe in another 150k 
I'll need to replace my 4kq, lol!

   OT:  Recently I had the chance to thrash this car on a twisty snow 
covered roads with some quattro-newbies.  Diffs locked and fitted with Hakk 
II's, my '87 ebay-special 4kq *stunned* my passengers.  Enter hot, a little 
lift to start rotation, then floor it and come sliding out in a 
perfectly-controlled (if lurid!) drift to straight, accelerating the whole 
time.  I think the 4kq could be the best snow car of all time.  I sometimes 
think of swapping out to something newer, quieter, and a little less 
cantankerous, but then winter comes and I'm in love again.  :)
