Audi A8 My Fiero (Page 1/220)
engine man JUN 10, 12:09 PM
I have bought an 1998 Audi A8 engine and a 2001 Passat 012 transmission plus the wiring harness and ECU to put in my 1988 Fiero T Top car . The engine will be mounted Longitudinal not transverse i will not stretch the car or cut the fire wall I should be able to keep the CV joint angle at about 10 degrees since the engine is so short. If one of you could send me the wiring schematic for a 1998 audi A8 so i can figure out the harness i would appreciate that

I had the same idea... but a W8 from Volkswagen instead of the A8's V8... Good luck! I'll be watching this one!

Better plan on stiffening the undercarriage as there is a lot of missing strength in the T-top cars. Adding horse power adds flex which the T-top can’t handle.

No, he bought the motor, eventhough he showed us a picture of the car instead of the motor which I'd have preferred to see.

Engine Man, here's a little something to help motivate you, Porsche Boxster with an Audi 4.2.

I am not too up to speed on this engine/wiring. But if it's like most VW stuff aren't you going to need the dash too?
