View Full Version : 4.0T Swap

Hi, Iím having a 4.0T swapped into my 2009 S5 by Caste System Performance. The 4.2 has been removed, and the trans is on the bench ready for its new mate.
Iím from NYC, where itís hard to carry out a swap in an apartment. But gratefully I can say CSP has come though with all my goals on this S5. Now we will look forward and see how this swap goes. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171230/35e305ae1fbb16e2692fb0e3a250e6c5.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171230/52294adca817a046948ec5bc2574a5b4.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171230/52294adca817a046948ec5bc2574a5b4.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171230/7a75e5009f6ad11fdab92dff879b8ffa.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171230/c24056bb2888cc49f182e934e8149497.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171230/f9f5dc089ebb687b53c3d86c6933ebbf.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171230/0814f17ab4c112045a91aad59794353d.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171230/9df6557ef3c5cc72d676b35ab99c0be8.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171230/8e814163a68a09570fb1a5d0445d2471.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171230/fd7f52ac1ef096a911df18da7659dd0f.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171230/8238e9f087f920febca2820a0b20556a.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171230/8d000020ebdcc39da84d1b788679ac03.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171230/675c324863f4120b6c182737c1ef6c78.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171230/e20aa4d1d53527ce75b54bb20b89d840.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171230/2f2b5aa9e3defeb91164bfdbc9c8683f.jpg

The 4.0T engine came from a 2013 S8. The S5 will stay manual, with a JHM R5 plate and clutch. The S5 034 motor mounts are bolted to the 4.0t brackets. The power steering pump and starter will come from the 4.2. Alternator, engine wiring harness, ECU, AC compressor from the 4.0T.

Sounds like an interesting swap. Probably not too much more expensive than doing an aftermarket supercharger in the long run once you sell off your extra parts. Subscribing...

Lol hopefully, but we are doing a little bit more then just a swap. Thereís turbo, intercooler, fueling upgrades. And a water/meth kit.

MRC did this to a B8 RS4 over in the UK, great conversion. I believe their only issue was getting the car systems to accept the engine ECU. Iím sure they would give you some advice if you needed it, they helped me out when I was swapping springs on DRC dampers.

Iíll be following this one closely.

It has a carbon driveshaft, axles coming in August. Lol Iíve begged JHM for a rear diff for years. Engine Cooling? We arenít in that phase yet but hopefully soon.

The 4.0 is stock. 34k miles. Plans are APR valve springs, forge Motorsport bov (just because), Snow Performance stage two w/m, silly rabbit Motorsport 2873 BB turbo upgrade.
Yes, they are APR Downpipes.

Looks like APR downpipes off the turbos.
Itís a different exhaust run off the engine, with the turbos being mounted in the hot vee the downpipes come over the back of the engine instead of down the sides, itís going to be fun!

Insane. In a good way.

I'm sure the price on the used engine alone would probably make my eyes water.

Couple of questions...custom bell housing? Custom, one-off carbon driveshaft?

Woah... crazy!!! Any pictures yet of the 4.0T in the car? The motor mounts look the similar if not the same to the B8. Do they bolt right up?

What are the details on the need for a customer driveshaft?

If it is priced right parts-wise, then I could see myself doing this swap instead of a supercharger.

GTM Bandit
01-05-2018, 12:14 PM
The mounts will bolt right up. If you contact Tad @ Driveshaft shop he can hook you up. We are doing a few things before the engine goes in. So sorry no pic yet.

GTM Bandit
01-05-2018, 01:09 PM
Sorry I replied to quickly, it depends on what are your plans.
Iím looking for 900 chp/900 lbs tq. That will probably run me three times the cost of a JHM supercharger. If you find a engine with all the lines, sensors, ecu, harness, engine brackets, it may come out cheaper. The that would be hard to find. And for our cars you would need a engine from a S8 as you would need the P/S pump.

More horsepower is always the plan, but to start a simple stage 1/2 (can't remember) tuned 4.0T is going to make more than 600+chp so no need for a lot of mods. I would likely start with just a basic S8 swap. Likely try to find a wrecked S8 as a donor car.

Long story short... could a straight 4.0T swap be done for less than $12k.

Letís say an engine with all the stuff and decent mileage will run about $10k-$13k.
$10k-12k. [emoji102] then comes tuning... on that I have no idea as Iím not there yet. Make sure you have a tuner helping you out in terms of what they can and canít do. Any little change I make to my plan I run through my tuner.

How are you going to manage going from hydraulic power steering to electric power steering? Are you going to have to change a lot of the interior body harness as well? I haven't seen a lot of cross platform swapping (b8 to c7 as an example.) I am very interested to see the tuning for the manual tranny swap as well. Most of the Audi conversions I have seen and done utilized the tuning from a car that already had manual software. There aren't any 4.0t's that are manual that I know of. Super cool build! I am excited to see the progress!

sorry but at this point itís imperative to push leaders on this platform to share progress. the b8 s5 has been around since 08 & just now has it broke 10s in 1/4 mile. the infiniti q60 just came out & theyre running 10s already... people who do builds on our platform keep it hush hush & if they finally complete their projects they upcharge by a shit load for shitty products. itís really annoying. eurocode offers a built 3.0tfsi for like 15k w/o labor with no way to take advantage of a forged engine; itís ridiculous. those who push the pltform should share the knowledge to inspire . itís getting annoying getting destroyed by bmwís who just install a huge turbo & run a custom map & have 700whp.

Man you donít need to apologize to these cry babies.

They should be glad you even made a project thread on here. Also anyone who tried of flame over the SM platform is immature. This is why people donít use forums as much, everyone cries.

He isnít a big SM person either. If he hasnít posted anything in a while so what? are you paying for his build? are you helping with the labor? If not just sit back and wait. At least he is trying something for himself that 99% will not. You guys just wait for someone else to see if itís ďsafeĒ but wonít take the risk.

i'm guessing you & the other guy with his wife's anal plug stuck in his rear end are talking about me; i just wanted to say my intention was not to cry & complain. i just didnt want this project to be another 1 of 1 project that no one else can copy for the future. sorry if i came off that way, just tired of seeing the same old tuners hitting the same power goals on this subpar platform. i want that 4.0T as i'm sure most of you guys do, & i wanted to see details!
