    Would it not be easier to just buy a similar age S4 and be done with it?

    Due to age of your car and price of a similar aged S4, financially, it would be cheaper to buy an S4. The 2.8 V6 Heads are N/A and S4 heads are forced induction. It's not just a simple 'whack a turbo, intercooler and exhaust on' job.

    If it's the challenge of doing a conversion that you're after, then go for it. but expect a bottomless pocket of money to chuck at it.

    Even if you were to convert the car, you'd really need the entire 2.7tt engine, and most of the front end of an S4.

    The heads and cams are different, the inlets different, the pistons are different, the pipes are all different, the wiring harness is different, lubrication and sump is different etc etc etc. Even the cooling system, radiators, fans etc are different

    I'd be looking at selling up and buying an S4.
