    Wow, youve done yourself proud on that one mate - awesome is not the word!
    IMHO the exhaust could do with being slightly larger to suite the cars new image

    Well done though!

    Hmmmmm. Is it me or does that motor just look better and better with every photo that pops-up? I love the top-down one where the white-balance is slightly off - makes the orange and black really stand out.

    I'm thinking that the next time I've a few quid that's not destined for the fuel-tank I'm going to have to do the facelift lights and B7 wipers on mine. Of course that'll be where it starts... I have visions of invoices for new wheels and R/S4 bumper etc. etc!

    Regards,

    Damn straight. I blame ASN for it too!

    When I bought my A3 I just wanted to put a CD Player in it. Not long after finding this place it looked like this...



    So far my B5 has only had a wire for the N75 that burned-out, suspension arms, cambelt, waterpump, brake discs/pads, a CV boot, oil and a tanker-load of diesel! Nothing interesting yet. We'll see though!

    Regards,

    what sort of price are we looking at for them siena?, ive just had the blades changed on mine by audi and they charged 24 and fitted them.

    so im guessing blades probably similar but what about the arms?

    Just seen the finished result, Loving the color coding and body work, just think it's missing slightly fatter and shinier exhaust pipes, it deserves one especially to set off the lower rear spoiler. Nice work :beerhcug:

    So, little update...

    Decided to finally bite the bullet. Sold my S4 Biturbo motor - the new owner drove down from London, armed with a box van, a pallet and an extremely large sidekick, paid for, and took the engine away.

    I've now purchased a 4.2L V8, from an early S8, (non-DBW) so 340PS to play with, before things hot up later with a turbo/s set-up.

    It's complete with loom, ECU, all ancillaries, instrument cluster, airbox / MAF and original ignition key.

    It's of course, an auto, so will be ordering a V8 flywheel from Audi. I WAS looking to go aftermarket ECU, for ease of installation, but decided against it, for a number of reasons:

    1) I'll lose my on-board computer function
    2) Not sure how the variable intake manifold would work
    3) I couldn't use VAG-COM with my OEM OBD connector, not for the engine anyway


    I spent Saturday going over the S8 and my B5 schematics, and I can actually integrate both, and retain the OEM functions. I can also keep my OEM instrument cluster too, as cars prior to '99 didn't have the immobilliser incorporated in the dash.

    I might use the S8 one however, as the V6 tacho will be far from accurate with a V8 motor, and the on-board computer will DEFINITELY be well out, in terms of fuel computing.

    Engine and all the hardware's being delivered on Saturday, and I'll probably get the intake plenum, rocker boxes and timing belt covers done in wrinkle black / grey.

    Updates via the usual pictures and text.

    Picture of the S8 motor still in the car, as at last week...

    She does look huge, but she'll fit within the B5 chassis. Of course, my trusty S4 6-ratio box (01E / DSY) will be used.

    Nothing wrong with the rear wheel, other than the angle of camera lens / image view.

    About these B7 wiper arms. Are they a buy and bolt affair or is there more to it than that? It's the sort of mod I can sneak past the wife without her picking up on it. lol

    What sort of cost are they?

    Car looks awesome BTW

    I'd personally keep your B5. They seldom come up with the sort of low mileage yours has.

    Yeah still in two minds on that one

    How difficult were the wipers to fit and are they different to the conversion vag parts sell? I only ask because Audi 90 for the part numbers you posted above where as VAG parts do a conversion kit for 50 and I was wondering if that would look the same as yours

    VAGparts kit is different to mine - from B5.5 Passat, and not as nice IMHO.

    At last, S8 engine has turned up. With all the bits and pieces.

    Still has the torque converter attached, will be tearing that off tomorrow. Myself and the driver were able to lift it out of a Citroen Xantia wagon, without too much hassle.

    Someone said Audi figures suggest the V6 30V / Biturbo is lighter? Hell, no. I've had to move the S4 engine before, with a couple of my buddies, and it was a bloody struggle.

    Posting up pictures shortly.

    It may be hassle, yes. But you achieve nothing without pushing boundaries, and taking risks.

    Did you do all the body mods yourself?

    You planning on doing the engine swap yourself too?

    No, I don't do bodywork, that was done by a bodyshop.

    As for engine swap, engineering IS my discipline. No one has ever worked mechanically or electronically on any car I've ever owned, and never will.

    That V8 will be massaged between the B5's chassis rails by my own fair hands.

    Siena, i note you are changing from Auto to the 6 speed, i take it you don not have the spigot bearing problems that we have on the 1.8t. Ie a manual having the bearing and the auto crank not even having the ability to fit one. A crank swap is the way around for us
