Yep the audi V8 was a lot shorter, but remember it was fitted to a Mk1, this engine is going into a Mk2, we have much more room between the rear hub centre and seat back to play with. Also i'm not using the same transmission as before, i can save 7" of length by using Audi's 2010 A4 unit which has the output shafts right at the flywheel face.pablo said:Are you under 5' tall? The Audi V8 swap had cabin intrusion and that motor was what, 20" long? That engine has to be 10" longer?
It'll fit, we've been here before.
