Maybe a call to Mark Wetzel (Squidix9 on Audiworld) would be a good idea -
apparently he has a ex-Allistair McRae rally car that has a normally
aspirated 5 cylinder putting out in the vicinity of 200 hp....
His web site is at:
1962 and '64 Auto Union DKW Junior deLuxes
1980 Audi 5000
1987 Audi 5000 Turbo Quattro
