RE: 944 engine into quattro? (4k,5k)

300hp.  Try 400hp on for size.  Ont he west coast there are a few 4kq's
with 20vt's in them.  they range from 350-450hp depending ont he level of
boost.  I wonder if its worth the time and effort to do a 944t motor.
Sure, itc capable of lots of power.  but a 20vt is cheaper to buy and
maintain.  And just as capable and it bolts right up with factory engine
mounts, etc.  I spose the 944t motor weighs less though which might give a
handig advantage.  
	But your right about the brakes and suspension.  Whith the extra
weight, and power.  Big brakes and coil-overs are preferred.    But boy
are they fun.  Ridden in Alex's a couple times.  Never ridded in tim
valencia's.  But they both scream.  90-120mph happens as fast as forst
gear happens in my 4kq.  Or it seems that way anyhow.  L8R
