If you try to use new Audi parts, I think you'll be inclined to agree
with your mechanic. The price will be extremely high. In my experience,
it is very difficult to find good used Audi parts at a salvage yard.
Your best source of used parts would probably be Shokan (800-ALL-AUDI).
It's possible that you'll need to change both manifolds, the engine
computer, and lots of other odds and ends. It could very well be that
this conversion will end up being totally impractical. (It might be
cheaper to sell your car and buy the turbo car)

>Has any one heard of a aftermaket kit?

Can't recall seeing any kits advertised anywhere. You might want to
give a call to Ned Ritchie and ask him about the feasibility of your
idea. Ned owns a company called Intended Acceleration that specializes
in Audi Quattro and turbo engine computer performance mods. He'd
probably be able to tell you everything you want (or don't want) to
know. His phone # is (206)754-1411.
