yea i saw that a while back, the front was pushed out ridiculously far. Would be fun to drive if everything matted up tho!

I posted those up for the owner - he's in Greece, didn't know how to upload.

Here are more pictures:

The error he made here was using the RS6 block.
The RS6 block is unique - it doesn't share external dimensions with any other Audi V8 40V.

The block-to-bellhousing pattern's unique too - it's designed to mate to an auto box only, and has a massive torque converter, shared with the W8 Passat. The only way to bolt it to a regular 01E 6-speed tranny is to use an adapter plate, which due to the thickness, pushes the longer RS6 block out even further.

The way to go would be to use a regular Audi 4,2L 40V V8 block, with the RS6 internals, bar the 10-bolt crank, a regular 8-bolt one would do just fine.

And this was Audi's first foray into A4 V8 territory.

This white test car was an early '99 S4, Audi's new aquisition, Cosworth Technology were handed the task of getting a V8 40V into the bay, in anticipation of the next S4, which of course was destined to be V8 n/a...

Note Audi TT-style frontal treatment, which I don't like...

And a Canadian-built car, with it's own interpretation of how a B5 V8 should look.

In this case, an S4 V8 FSI unit was used...

I will search for some pics of an German project, RS4 with RS6 engine, believe he's going for 650WHP..

With that much amount of work he could just do a built 2.7 and not have to worry about an unproportionate car, not to say heavy as hell too.

Doesn't quite work that way, I'm afraid.

He's doing the conversion, because he can, not because it's practical.

A B5 1,8T built right can make 600PS yes, a 2,7 and 4,2 biturbo can also make the same.

The larger engines will obviously deliver the power very differently to to smaller I4, and with similar internal beefing, will be less stressed.

A larger engine's also about torque too.

Even the simple FSI v8 motor will feel so nice and responsive in a B5. You are still making around 300 horses.

he's still going through with it? it looks like it's 3-4 inches too long to get the front end on. is he swapping the block to do away with the adapter plate? i can't see how that would give him anywhere near enough room to get it to fit.

Well it needs more tq seeing that the car will be much heavier.

Funny thing is that I make nearly the same whp as some of the high boosting twin GT S4 2.7's and am about 600 lbs lighter. LOL

yea sure it would be cool but take a look again. the rad sticks out like two frickin feet past the end of the front fender... would loook awkward imo. maybe in an a6?

Is the red part the inlet to the TB? Because that looks like it would be one huge restriction.


I guess the person did that swap forgot to measure twice.

This thread is tight. That white S4 looks nice except the huge gap under the headlights.

True. Though are you talking about the streetable GT S4's or the gutted ones? [:D]
