Re: CPU-controlled '88 ur-Quattro WG?

  I started fooling around with the WG, springs, controls and external
  adjustability because the automobile ('87 5000CSQTW) was only develpoing
  1.1-1.2 Bar boost max, as displayed by the LCD, and perf felt a little
  off from what I knew to expect. I can easily dial-in ~1.7-1.8 Bar with
  the external adjustment setup, but I don't have any type of CPU mod to
  allow the higher boost, so things shut-down at an indicated 1.3-1.4 Bar.
  That small increase from 1.1 to 1.3 Bar made a BIG difference!

  I definitely do want to raise the boost further, but I want to do the CPU
  mod that retains proper operation of the OEM boost display. When I get
  all the info and parts I'll go for it!

  The IA-modified Stage-II CPU is in the '85 ur-Quattro and is totally
  different. That car runs about 2.1-2.2 Bar boost with pump gas and is
  presently awaiting a heart transplant as preventative maint at >180,000
  miles. It will be a bigger heart!
