    Welp, time to nut up or shut up

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I've been dreaming of a V8 swapped B5 ever since I got my car to stage 1.

    I think the 4.2 route is cool and all, keeping that master race bloodline clean and all. That being said, Just as I like to be different with my RWD A4, I want to be a little different in my V8 swap.

    I've decided a Chevy V8 mate to a T5 is going to be the way to go.

    Now, LSx or carbed is still TBD.

    A 4-bolt main SBC is cheap and easy to source, with infinite aftermarket support.

    An LSx (or LMx or LQx) is going to be more expensive, but much lighter and just plain newer.

    It's going to be a dedicated drift car, with virtually no streetability.

    I just parked the car in it's final resting place as a 1.8TM.

    I'm going to start pulling parts today.

    Here is a quick little video as it's final 1.8T run:




    I'll be updating this as progress ensues, or I get pissed off and set it on fire.

    small blocks make anything cool, had one in a 84 s10 blazer that was slammed it was awesome. I miss the V8 rumble... In an Audi, a good LS vette motor I bet would do well.

    Progress of the day:



    As soon as I get some parts sold I'm going to pick up a cherry picker, engine stand, and then pull the drivetrain from engine to rear diff.

    Thanks for the interest, all! This is a committed project that I'll see through the end. I just can't wait to slide this thing around the track.

    From what I heard, the 2JZ was only in for a weekend, because somebody told the dude it couldn't be done while retaining AWD.

    Engine and trans mounts are going to be the easy part for me, it's the wiring the is going to give me the roughest time.

    Depending on how this works out for you I might see if I can swap a spare chrysler 318 I have into my b5. I didn't even realize there were 4.2 swaps until today.

    I want to move it back as far as possible. The false firewall is getting cut out, the battery relocated, and if I have to, I'll massage the firewall. The shifter location and linkage will need some research. The rear end will probably stay factory for right now. There are plenty of people with a lot of horsepower on factory rears. My target of 400rwhp shouldn't blow through too many diffs. Axles might be a different story.

    That engine in that car is a horrible idea lol...that's my kind of swap right there! It would be really cool if you could keep it all under the hood so no one knows. I still have the 1.8T badge on my 4.2 avant...the sleeper effect is well worth the work.

    Got under the car today while pulling more parts. The engine/trans measures 52" long, with about 10" it can move back before it hits the steering rack. Need to look up the dimensions on LSx's and then compare trans lengths on CD009's and T5's w/various tail housings (s10, Camaro, mustangs, 280zx, Astro van, ect.)

    Looks like an LS1 is about 20" long, and a T5 is about 19" long. If I do it right, I might be able to keep the factory driveshaft and shifter location. That would be doooope.
