    Hi guys :salute:

    Can anyone point me in the direction of technical specifications and data for the S8 4.2, 1998-03 model. Would really like dimensions too.

    Also, someone told me that Audi didn't change the bulkhead plan, is this true ?

    Just thinking about putting the 4.2 in something else :think:

    Any help much appreciated !


    Matt :)

    Without a bit more detail, you'll be hard pressed to get any advice here.

    The early S8's were 1995 - 1999, then 1999 - 2003.

    Early were 32V, later were 40V.
    I have a 1998 S8 motor (AKH) complete, ready to go into my B5 A4 quattro, so I can take measurements - width and length.

    You mention firewall plan, but don't mention what car you're referring to.
    What car do you intend to install the S8 engine into??

    Matt, the answer is easy.

    Tyresmoke.net or A8Parts (follow my link below to the A8 owners club) will allow you to get all the info you require :yahoo:
