re: origins of the v8

this is an old topic that i participated in.  yes, audi did consider using
the 928's v8 but found that it was too heavy. (unka bart did some research
and did confirm that it was heavier)  

i don't remember if the 928's block used the same silicon etched material
or it used cast iron liners.  in any case audi rejected it because it was
too heavy.  the latter point i am very sure of.

i have car rags going back a long time.  i can find out a lot more
stuff if anyone's interested.  i even recall a LJK Setright article
in CAR where he's blasting the 928's engine design.. don't recall
the details tho...
