I am from the VW modding world, but am now dipping my toe into the audi sump oil.
I was originally looking at an RR quattro set up for my project, having researched the power it can handle / generate. I was going to use indepentant coil packs and a Motec ECU, given that I am going for very big power (4 figure bhp)
However, I have been offered an AAN engine and box. I've heard that the intake is slightly different and requires more space, but other than that, I know nothing about the engine.
Is it basically the same setup, or are there significant differences in the hardware? I guess what I am getting at is: "for a similar cost, can the AAN engine be beefed up to handle the same power as an RR can"?
I'd be looking at up to a 10k redline.
Oh, one other thing, this is going into a (spaceframed) mk2 golf. Space would have been tight with the RR, so considering that, do you think I'd have a problem fitting the AAN?
Thanks very much,
