    Hi,

    KV and JS are both 10v 5 cylinder engines, only had one JS engine and couldn't really tell it was smaller than a KV, never attempted tuning JS either as i didnt feel the need, both great engines with little to choose between them but cant see why JS is any better to tune as they ate both so similar.

    If you're after a very fit KV engine i'm breaking a 90 quattro at the moment, let me know if interested. Can still be heard running as i only needed subframes for my coupe quattro, was going to keep as spare but am open to offers? Car is in Doncaster

    Cheers
