Looking for advice

	I am about to take delivery of an '87 5KCSTQ, *GRIN*, to replace my 
recently departed '86 4KCSQ, :(   I am fairly new to the Audi world, and am 
looking for advice in upgrading this car.

	I keep seeing posts about chips this, springs that, these guys are 
better than those, etc, and am having a hard time figuring out where to start.  
I figure that since this is a turbo car, and living in the North East, a 
stainless steel exhuast might be a good place to start? I figure better flow 
equals quicker spool-up from the turbo.  Is this correct thinking.  Can anyone 
recommend a good place to look for such a beast?

	Next would come a stiffer wastegate spring, no?  Then chip mods.  Is any 
one place better that another (quality/cost) for getting these kinds of parts?

	On the suspension side of things, my 4K had Eibach springs with Boge 
shocks and handled great, but I have seen a couple of posts advising AGAINST 
Eiback for the 5K's.  Is there a consensus on a better spring/shock setup for 
this car?  Keeping in mind this is not a track bound vehicle, but will be a 
daily driver for the winter months.

	I welcome all and any advice on how to proceede with this car.  I want 
to make this car as fun as possible to drive.
