Thanks this is the best answer I have seen yet. And what I was looking for.

as far as the vote went:
		4  for the Mahle OC-85
                2  for the Mahle OC-47 (includes Shokan of NY)

it doesn't seem that there is much of a difference between the two but if
anyone knows why the OC-85 is recommended for the turbo please let me know.

Jim I see you are from Alldata. Is this type of information on the CD for the
5000's. Also will the service be available through the net soon?
