they were claiming some absurd unrealist HP number on stock exhuast manifolds, but the motor was in the car.
and if you want to get techincaly yes the 2.7T does fit in a 1.8T engine bay since that would also include the A4, and the S4 and A4 share the same basic design other then bumpers
Re: 2.7TT engine in the 1.8T engine bay (Toaster29)
The engine is also mounted 90 degrees "off". The VR6 has a very small "V" angle, 15 degrees (This MUST be a refresher course, right?) and was designed to mount transversely. (Side by side with tranny)
The 30v V6 is a wide angle Vee. 90 degrees to be exact. This makes it take up much more room in the engine bay. It was also designed to mounted longitudinally. (front to back)
Just a quick impression of this thread, makes me believe some of you are mistaking the chassis designations.
Yes, the current Golf/Jetta/NB/TT chassis is called "A4", but the AUDI A4/S4, Passat is a "B" series chassis. And while all VAG products are remarkably similar, these two chassis are very different.
