    B7 RS5 4.2 swap to C5 A6

    It is possible to swap the 4.2L V8 from the B7 RS4 to the C5 A6 4.2L Quattro? That sounds like it could be a fun swap. If it is possible how hard would it be?

    Thanks guys

    Very possible, the kind of swap that really gets me fired up.

    The physical install is easy, the wiring can be challenging, but as long as you can read basic electric wiring diagrams, itís not too bad.

    The fuel system will need reworking, the lines etc.

    Thereís no walkthrough on this swap, probably because no oneís done it yet.

    You could be the first though, start a trend!

    Considering people are using B6 S4 transmissions in C5 manual swaps now, I don't see physically bolting it up being a huge deal. All the plumbing and accessories are what can take a while to sort out.

    That swap shouldn't be that hard in the grand scheme of things.

    I 2.7 swapped a C5 S6 the hard way (used a 2001 engine/harness in a 2003 car) and even though it was pretty easy I took over a year to do it. Lots of waiting on parts and breaks though.
