cold start

Message-ID: red-35-msg951220202752MTP[01.51.00]000000fa-3444

Had the same problem in my '90 model 80 Quattro.  Usually it wouldn't 
die, but it would run rough and wouldn't accelerate (like it couldn't 
get any gas to the engine) until it warmed up.  All my problems were 
solved when I replaced the P-chip.  Plus I gained 10 horses and it even 
sounds cooler now.  My mechanic did it, so I don't know which chip 
supplier he used.  His name is Dennis at Bellevue Motor Sports (206) 747-3278.
