Yeah - got to have it all.

I recently put my, ahem, test pipe back in. Conducting a 5 yr test ;-)
Combine that with the nice cool fall temps and the car really feels alive
again.  It was feeling somewhat slow with warmer temps and that cork of a

I'd like to think I can be happy with 23 psi through the RS2 turbo...but as
I once learned from another lister (Dennis G) "too much power is almost
enough".  Of course I say that having a very mild 20V compared to many
others out there....but hey talk about reliable. 6yrs and 30,000 miles so

Enjoy the car - I know you will.  It totally transforms the car in so many
good ways.

The guy that flagged me down did know what it was.
He said "Is that a real ur-quattro? You never see those driving around."

My car is pretty much there for this season.  I am just driving it. I'll
have a bunch of winter projects.

I would like to get all the power.  I am only getting about 20psi. I've
fixed a lot of boost leaks and fiddled with the fuel pressure, but its not
quite there. It is pretty much driving like a typical chipped 3B.  Its nice,
but I want it all.
