Had a look through my pics and found one of the engine code, its not an ABF but an ACE which is an audi variant of the 9a corrado short block 2l

Slightly better than the 9A as it has the same head as an ABF (rather than the KR). Slightly worse than an ABF due to milder cams.

Thats good news,

we looked at the cams and its stamped 027 which i think is kr so it should produce 150 according to online talk

Tuning beyond that is probably on the expensive side so will have to wait a year or two
