    Do you think there'd be much of a demand/market for an S4 engine c/w RS6 turbos, 3" DPs (with flanges to suit the turbos), FMIC etc?

    I'm thinking of a new project on my track car involving an engine swap, so the above items might be for sale.

    The engine would fit into the Passat, but other cars like the Golf/Bora perhaps?



    TIA.

    Might not be much demand here try audisrs, youll probably find they will just want the turbos as they will already have the engine with RS4 mods !!

    Will do ta, but engine's go for pennies on there, maybe £500.
    Turbos I reckon I could sell for £1200 ish.
    3" DPs and 3" dual cat back - maybe £600?


    Looking at 1.8T & strokers... :faint:


    Just looking at widening the market.

    I am a big fan of the 1.8t
    but 1.8t with GT35 or similar vs a 2.7tt with RS6's?

    no contest I am afraid

    assuming you had the same lightening option on a v6 engined car
    torque curve and power delivery aside
    the power potential on a Rs6'd 2.7tt is much higher for much less outlay

    to get 400+ on a AJL/AEB you are looking at serious hardware, much better off stroking to 2l or a 1.9 bore as a minimum
    complete head rebuild and replace all valvetrain with Ti
    rods, pistons, crank, ex/in mani
    packaging issues with housing a 30-35 frame turbo (the inlet is the issue especially if you stick with a MAF driven ECU)


    lot of S4/RS4's running 500 with much less hardware

    I know what mine cost to build and I never got it into the car
