i am not sure if i have enough room for the turbo but i have the supecharger intake all made now . the S8 engine is hard to find and the price is much higher so for the money the A8 engine is a better choice is the A8 the only thing is i wish i would have started with one that has a timing chain not bet and Niksil cylinder bores

Patrick I am sure it will work out fine as the engine it self has had forced induction put on it with turbo charging i just chose to use a supercharger and for intercooling i chose water / meth injection but i know that the proof is in the pudding as they say

At a local car show yesterday, someone came up and showed us pics of a similar project he's working on. He's stuffing an Audi 1.8 into the back end of a Pontiac Sunfire track car. Looked pretty cool.

I think when i repair the engine and put it back together i am going to switch to the 01x 6 speed transmission because it is much stronger and can be found in 2005 and up A4 Audi fwd

I am getting excited to get this engine i am going to double up the head gaskets to lower the compression ratio down to about 9 to 1 and eventually i will add water / meth injection for cooling of the intake charge i am hoping to have it all back together by the end of January i will be running around 15 pounds of boost

Thanks for the info on the 6 speed trans axle, next up I'm noticing there seem to be 2 very different versions of the 4.2 v8, ones like yours with the cam drives in the front and others with the cam drives in back, the latter seems to be a newer design starting around 2000.

what do you know about the newer engines, and do they fit the 6 speed? I'm getting close to being ready to buy parts for the Fauxrrari project.

Thanks, Joe

yes the engines with the chain drive will bolt up from what i am told and they are shorter in length and put out more power they also have a 8 bolt crank flange so finding a manual transmission fly wheel is not a problem . yes my camera sucks on my phone
