[V8] What was I thinking!

Yes, I saw the Avant with the V8 on the Audi Connection website.

But my 20Valve Avant already has V8 like performance, and from my
experience, I see no reason to shove a V8 into the wagon. Besides, even a
10-Valve engine has enormous potential for developing much more power.

Now, the C-4 cars would make a great V8 conversion candidate.  My mechanic
has a '97 A6 that was totaled out by the insurance company because  the ECU
got flooded when leaves and junk was allowed to fill up the cowl area.  John
bought the car for about three grand, and has fixed the ecu and the car is
now running and ready to be sold....OR, maybe, converted.  I'm not ready to
finance such a conversion at the moment, but it is a tasty thought.
