[V8] servotronic connection on 90 V8?

There was some discussion on this a year and a half ago.  Keith says
that the wiring was installed on all the 1990 models, and thinks it is
possible to retrofit (but why?).

Mine is a 1990 which has a pretty nice feel in my opinion.  The 1991 and
newer cars have the servotronic assist...  I have noodeling this over in
the back of my mind for a while...  Why not tap into the circuitry that
tells the car you are going over 15mph (for the quattro system) and
drive a relay to cut/provide power to the servotronic brain?  Assist in
the parking lot and solid feel on the Autobahn...

1990 models didn't have Servotronic.  Perhaps the wiring harness was set
up for it beforehand, I don't know.  I pulled up the wiring diagram ...
it indicates that the wires to N119 (Servotronic Solenoid Valve) are
Green and Grey/White ... so, it looks like the answer is yes, that
connector is intended to attach to the control valve on the rack ...
