Hi Gents, I am new to the forum, but not to cars. Like most I have had a few motors over the years, actually probably about 50. Mostly Jap stuff, plus lots of hatchbacks and mini's when I was younger and a few Beemers too (sorry!). I still actively track day a Mk1 Mx5. Low on power, but big on handling and fun - I am looking for something to compliment it in the stable. A road going monster. I have a long term itch I need help scratching. A big power 5 cylinder build. I am happy building engines, fabricating, welding etc but I am not sure about the Audi 5 pot family and how they link to the Volvo and Ford's later. I cannot afford to do a big spec build on something like a UR, or an RS2. However, I wanted to know what your thoughts are on the project as a whole, and which chassis, drivetrain and engine you would put together for ease. Why re-invent the wheel. So, please let me have your suggestions/experiences/links. The most I read, the more I realise I know nothing about Audi's apart from my love for the 5 pot noise has not gone anywhere for 20+ years. Fixed spec is: Affordable AWD/4WD chassis. (which would you choose?) Audi/Volvo/Ford i5 turbo engine. (again which doner would you choose?) Which 4wd drive train/gearbox? Hopefully this will be the same as the doner chassis for ease.

Thanks in advance. Richard.
