    An american v8, is not different. There's plenty of v8 b5s, plus, why would you want to roll around in a euro car sounding like a camaro with blowmaster exhaust?

    Since it seems you have unlimited funds and want be different, go find a small displacement v6/v8 out of a wrecked ferrari/maserati to swap in, or a rotary engine? Now that would be cool, and different. While you are at it, take advantage of that station wagon space, and convert to mid engine?

    Honestly in all seriousness, you should do an OM series in A4, way more realistic and easier & cheaper to pull off, you seem to have da money for it.

    Well we are a military town and there are lots of depandapotamuses around. Sure you can find a large woman to keep you warm at night and during the day.

    Update: wiring has been figured out in theory.

    Using the Holly HP ECU and their wiring harness (dont have to do anything with the GM harness and eliminate anything unnecessary)
    I'll be using their dash for speed/rpm. Have to wire in a few power and ground wires and then hook up a their relay for the fuel pump and wire it in. And the car will start and run.
    Luckily I have pretty good guidance in the LS Swap platform.
    I wont have to mess with any of audis wiring really.

    Since Holly has their own nitrous system setup.
    They were trying to convince me to do a progressive 200 shot stating at 40 and as throttle/boost increases increase till 200....

    I'm not ready for that life.

    We talk about swaps and all that jazz, but I feel like we need to take a moment and appreciate the 1.8 20v. There arent many small displacement 4 bangers that can handle 300-350hp without a single internal modification. and with 300 usd dropin rods you can make 400 +. Truly an unique engine with 3 intake valves /20v not to mention parts and availabilty.

    The 1.8t is great and I am a 4cyl guy at heart.
    But I came from evos/dsms.
    My 05 MR before the grand let go made 500whp at 35psi on E85 stock turbo (couldnt go anymore)
    Had a fully built 1G DSM.
    Had a fully built B20B/B18C5 Turbo Civic
    . But that was a one wheel wonder all day long and ran out of injector duty cycle and stopper making power at 515whp.
    I love 4cyls and how they shut up all the big displacement guy.

    I think the 1.8t is a great motor and I'd love to build a big turbo one, one day.

    How do you plan to calculate speed? Iíd imagine the display youíre talking about using isnít calibrated for an Audi VSS

    How does that tie in though? I would imagine they are designed to run off a t56 or 4Lxx transmission VSS, or does that dash use gps?

    My has a pioneer nav screen in it that tells you your speed based off gps alone. It seems to be really accurate so far.

    If its a proper standalone ecu it will know and you can calibrate it. VSS are basically all the same its just a frequency sensor.
