    A4 b5 swap 2.8 for 2.7t engine how hard?

    Ok so i know it's been done once before by a member here but i can't find the threads.

    My resale value on my 2.8Q is pants, so i'm looking at dropping an s4 engine into it or Rs4 engine. The latter is assume would be rare to find and then cost more than it's worth to do.

    I've found an s4 engine on ebay for 1500

    So can i simply plumb an s4 engine into my a4 2.8 quattro? What others changes would be needed?

    Thanks for your help.

    mainly plumbing, wiring loom, ecu. if it is an s4 being parted out get as much of the front end as you can subframe, gearbox, radiators, exhaust etc. you will need to upgrade your brakes and suspension to take advantage of the power

    have seen some 2000 s4's for 6k on ebay maybe its worth saving for that unless you can afford the downtime on your a4
    just a little a6
