    Surely going that far forward is gonna seriously affect the cars steering, I would like to see a vid of it round a track to see what it does.

    Not sure which install you're referring to...

    Suspension settings CAN be altered to suit weight / forward mass.

    Besides, a V8 motor in an A6 C5 sits in exactly the same position, in relation to the front strut assemblies.

    Loads of respect is due, this is an awesome project.
    Keep it up.

    If you need a lightened / one off flywheel gimme a PM and I can sort you with number for a local company who specialise in that sort of thing.

    Just bagged myself a '96 (P) Audi A4 1.9TDI, for the princely sum of 100.

    The owner ran her low on oil, now the big-end bearings are worn. May just need shells.

    I made him an offer of 100 about 2 weeks ago, but he was adamant he'd only accept 200. So, I walked away. Back from work today, and he called, accepting my original offer.


    She's an SE model, which means it has climate control, in dark metallic green, and has A4 competition alloys, same as my originals. (7"x16" with 205/55x16 rubber). I'll be picking her up on Tuesday, just round the corner from me.

    I intend to buy new shells, and rebuild the engine.

    Whilst it's out of the car, I'm going to bolt my S8 motor into the bay, and get the fit sorted. May require custom engine mounts, but we'll see. There's a possibility the mounts for the 4.2L V8-engined A6 C5 MAY fit, as the A6 subframe is no different to that of the A4.

    Pictures will follow. I should imagine my flywheel is ready (thanks Tuffty), though it wouldn't matter if it isn't, as I don't really require the flywheel to bolt it to the 01A / 012 5-speed, as it's just a trial fit, I'm not going to be attempting to get the motor running in a diesel-engined car, as the fuel tank is wrong.

    Still, who knows? A gallon of petrol, a length of petrol piping for feed / return, and an inline fuel pump from an Audi Coupe type 85, or a Golf II GTI could well serve as a fuel tank...

    Problem is, right now she could become a project in her own right, after she's served her R&D purposes, and I've rebuilt the 1.9TDI.

    Could be a colour change, S4 bumpers and skirts, later doors and front wings, modified bootlid (again!) and facelift headlamps / rear lamps.

    As for wheels, I already have my 8"x18" B5 RS4 replicas, just need a refurb...

    Snoop, a TDI makes a cheap daily driver. Just wouldn't fancy a daily that looked so factory standard, after driving my quattro.

    Well, my flywheel's ready for collection at last.
    My S8 wiring harness is being modified.
    This also removes the S8 auto box wiring and massive ECU multiplug. Will retain the OEM knock sensors, but will be losing the MAF, and gaining a 3-bar MAP sensor.
    Also, ditching the OEM S8 twin-Lambda set-up, in favour of a single wide band Lambda. Great for mapping and set-up, essential for my twin turbo configuration, which will occur later in the year / early next year.
    ECU is aftermarket. I hope to get the engine running on the bench before August. Should be fun - just the OEM V8 headers, no silencing, my neighbours are gonna love me.

    Yeah. Last time I tried that, it was all over the place.

    Only hope my neighbours don't call the police - again.

    Haha, they called the cops?

    Can't imagine what they said.

    "Excuse me Sir, is that your engine precariously lashed to that there heating implement?"

    Keep up the good work!

    My flywheel turned up Monday evening - it was wrong!

    Either it was made wrong, or the wrong one was boxed up for me. It had the correct dimensions, but had 8-bolt fitting, which is ok for Audi I5 and V6 engines. My S8 motor has 10-bolt fitting.

    So, it's a set-back. I now have to wait for a new one to be made. How they got it wrong beats me, as I left the OEM S8 flexi plate as a template.

    I'm off to Brazil in August for 2 weeks, so this is an arse ache.

    Unfortunately, no.

    I have some personal commitments, and with my Brazilian trip in August, a lot to do. The ECU / wiring harness are being sorted out as we speak, need to buy a clutch too.

    It's made out of billet steel.

    Not keen on aluminium ones.
    It's designed to run a sprung-hub RS4 / S8 friction plate and cover.

    It will also take an RS4 Southbend Stage 3 clutch.

    Nice choice im not overly keen on the ally ones either, you need a bit of rotational mass behind these engines IMO. So it will take OE equipment thats a good idea to... do you think that the RS4 clutch can take the abuse you are going to put through it?

    I'll be running her on the bench, once the wiring harness and EMS are sorted.
