Quite alright!  I've been VERY busy with bizzyness.

Once again as always the engines on the Audi are way overbuilt, The head 
bolts are huge for a 2.2L turbo motor.  Bigger than a Chebby bolt!  As 
for the Intercooler Problems, there more of inconvience than a problem,  
Running 18psi day in and day out and the pressure spikes associated with 
it, tends to strech the crimps on the Intercooler and can cause "Minor" 
Leaks!!  How long have you run 22psi? If it was only for a day or two you 
prolly would not see the problem.

As for the Brakes... I'll let everyone know in due time.  Sorry, but I've 
got some interesting things going and I need to do some test's before I 
announce the kit.  When It's right I'll let everyone know.
