    tbh, the best thing you can do is pull it out and fit a 1.8T.

    the 2.6 makes 150hp out the box, and youll spend a lot of money getting any meaningful increase.

    1.8T also makes 150hp, and is easily chipped to 190 and then skys the limit if you want to take it further. I bought a donor A4 for my track car on ebay for £250, removed the engine and any parts i needed to fit it, sold what i could and scrapped the shell and between the scrap money and the few bits i sold i made the 250 back so the engine and parts were free and i was left with loads of spares too.

    Not a bad Idea, I HIGHLY rate those 1.8t lumps, when I first went to drive one i thought this is gonna be gutless but what a bloody surprise they are a seriously cool lump thats unles you want to keep the original 2.6 cause of the rarareity of them, I dunno what Id do, if the 2.6 was a minter I wouldnt touch it bought if it was a tad say dog eared then the 18t all the way

    nice yes the 2.6 is nice but lacking in mods . im swaying towards the 1.8t looking at all the mods you can get . how easy would it be to swap them over ????

    if you buy a donor car, pretty simple.

    You can keep your existing gearbox etc, the 1.8T will bolt right up. Get a car of a similar age to yours and the wiring will all just plug right in too.
