Not really all that much.  Slight mod to the front end of the car to accept
an intercooler that is single pass, more efficient than the 2 pass on the
earlier 44 chassis cars.   Remember tho, the Urq had a single pass IC in the
early 80's.  What did Audi learn?  Well, really, only that a 2 pass IC "fit"
easier into the original design of the 44 chassis cars.  Later, they
"learned" that some creative plumbing and minor changes let them fit a more
efficient IC.
