    If you can't wait here's a low mile motor. Try to stay under 45k and look for keywords lkq uses like with turbo



    Here's the motor I found a while ago and it was a steal

    Yes plug n play. Doesn't look like turbo is included so youll need to use your original turbo

    Cool driftcar project though and first b8 rwd

    Personally id go 4.0 v8 TT if your doing something crazy
    The best v8 to get would be LS or Coyote that would be really crazy

    I put a 2013 engine almost 3 years ago in my b8 a4. Took a ton of research and Elsa was a big help! I still have my b8 a4 and drive it daily. Here is a link to get you started http://lovetodiyandmore.com/page8.php?category=19
    Almost forgot, if you buy a used engine always do a compression check and a leak down test for extra insurance before you install it, you would hate pay someone to install the engine and have to pull it back out Bec the used engine had problems, plus lkq and most salvage yards will replace them, if you call them within the first day or two of receiving it.

    Okay. I'm trying to decide which mechanic to go with. 1 mechanic is charging $3200 for the motor and $1500 for labor plus cost of other small items. See attachment.

    This mechanic is saying that he knows about LKQ but they are just pulled from cars at junkyard while his motors are pulled and then work is done to them before he gets them. He says this is what is done - Timing chain fixed.
    Rebuild cylinder head
    Carbon clean , ports brand new
    Replaced stem seals
    Replaced timing chain tensioner

    ------

    On the other hand, this other mechanic will just plug & play the motor that I buy from LKQ. The labor costing $1000 and motor costing $2500. He will add the small items listed in first mechanics invoice if they need to be replaced.


    What do you guys think? Will the motor from LKQ be fine as is, or should I pay more and get one from this mechanic and pay extra for him to work on it? I want to do this proper.

    4seasons is a great vw/Audi tuning shop but here's the thing. You don't need a vw/Audi specialist to do this swap. If your not mechanically inclined enough yourself your local mechanic can do this swap(so the second mechanic sounds imo better. Lkq is just pulling motors but I don't see the need to replace water pump on a 35k-45k motor unless it's leaking or not working
    Same goes for rebuilding the head? Why unless there's something wrong with it but on a 35k-45k motor?
    Seems like stuff you do if you got money to blow.

    Timing chain fixed? All 2013 and up motors have the fixed versions of tensioners and I doubt the chain is stretched at that mileage. Have mechanic replace with latest revision though since motor is out

    However I would recommend the carbon cleaning and replacing any seals that look bad since the motor is right there also I'd reccomend a rear main seal upgrade to future proof that. Don't get oem get the beefier aftermarket tsi one.

    Go with cheaper mechanic or do it yourself

    How much would a 2010 a4 with 100k miles and a blown engine be worth? Automatic transmission, Quattro, black leather interior, everything in good condition. As an estimate, of course

    Idk about worth but considering blue book on one not blown at that mileage is 9-10. I would pay no more than 4.5-5.5k realistically do I could do a swap and still maintain value to resell

    Not really bs. 4seasons is a great shop but they are offering a motor swap plus work that will prevent anything failing right after a swap. Not bullshit just unneeded extras

    because you can buy an 09 that runs for around the same price they quoted for the repair, car isnt worth that much to warrant dumping that much into it. You can never make that money back.

    Keep it simple, if you are going to rebuild this unfortunate loss. Value/worth/etc are all up to the owner and are all offset by how deep his pockets run.
    Not only that, OP is in CA, can't legally swap a 2JZ into a B8.

    Anyone swapping a 2jz isn't worried about legality more then power. Hence many 2jz swaps rolling In ca in a lexus

    How is it nonsense? I love Audi but American v8 will always be better when it comes to power.

    It's nonsense because it makes no sense to do. The cost, the fabbing and fitting and programming involved, trading AWD for a hybridized RWD, just to utilize an engine you think is better, because you're not considering power to size/weight ratios, or that engines themselves are purpose built for their respective platforms and their intended use, and not just to put out big numbers. You're comparing apples to oranges.

    Why not a Viper V10? Why not a Cummins turbo diesel?

    An EFR kit on a 2.0t would give you a better performing vehicle in AWD and be plug and play instead of a lengthy, costly build that would require some real talent and a lot of research/engineering to even attempt.

    One more thing. Let's compare apples to apples. A first gen R8 with the 4.2l V8 vs one of your American V8 Mustangs or Camaros.. I know what I'd pick.

    I see what you mean but my point of view if you got the money why not try it. I've seen people on here do ls swaps on older A4. Why is it so bad to try something out of the ordinary?

    If I went for looks I'd choose the r8 but if I want performance I'm going with a mustang these 2 are taking out GTR. If I want to that with Audi I have to get a RS7 or a v10 R8 which I can't afford because I'd rather save up for a home. I could go twin turbo with the v8 r8 but they don't do as well as the mustang

    Quarter mile guy huh? To each their own. When I say performance I'm talking about something different..

    I won't knock ya for being a fan of those platforms.. can't argue with the power. And you're right.. if you got the money/capability and really wanna do that just because, sure.. why not. I'd be scratching my head as I congradulate you for pulling off a strange swap that will likely be the only one of it's kind.

    My point exactly. Quarter mile guys think that's fast. Fast to me means the ability to circuit a road course at high speed and in control. So you can get to the end of a drag strip a lil quicker than me. Cool. Take some S bends with me at triple digit speeds and you can get to the morgue a lot quicker too.

    Iím talking about getting a good v8 not joining a yacht club lol.

    I live in SoCal so I mostly go straight all the time. The only time I have to worry about taking turns is on the 5 freeway with all the dips it has.
