 Mike.....why do you need those #'s? You got all the
#'s someone needs to do this. 
 I've talked to a few people who are in the know & no
mention of needing to know this info.

 Mike I mean no offense...you know me..we go back a
bit. I remember getting my H4 Euro headlights for my
ol 87 5ksq from you. I remember getting such a good
deal I sent you a "01" MtWashington shirt..or should I
say your wife confascated it ;-P...but
 I have sent you parts at good prices..basically I
like you..& alot of you guys know me not to pull any
punches, & I'm trying not to sound like a poster boy
for anything but...
I'm just not feeling the Crane cam guy. I think he
needs too much info cause he doesn't know the
application. Meaning he's not familiar with Audis. & I
won't trust my 4.2 motor..or anyone elses motor for
that matter with these cams from Crane. So
I think I'm going to ask a few people I know local...&
if I get the same questions you have gotten from the
guy at Crane I'm just going to go with the guy in
Germany. He seems to know what he's talking bout. Not
to mention I think this IS the guy who originally or
who does Scott J's spec2 cams. But
I could be wrong..rolling eyes...lol
