Anyone know how difficult it would be to put a 2.7 s4 motor into a 2001 tt quattro six speed?? Thanks!

Re: Engine swap (A418t97)

Please explain how you put a 90 degree longitudinal V6 in the engine bay of a transverse chassis.
In a longitudinal powertrain, the trans is behind the engine. In a transverse powertrain, it is mostly under the engine.
Where would you get a transverse trans for the 2.7T?
Where would you get the room for a 90 degree V6?

Re: Engine swap (NC-GTI)

It has been done but I think it would be prohibitively expensive for a private conversion. The company that built it is a big shop in Europe. Now only did they need to modify quite a bit of the engine bay to fit the motor, all of the suspension had to be custom fabricated for the quattro system (vs the haldex)
Anyway, if you are looking for twin turbo V6 power, I would look into HMS, HGP and HPA for their conversions, they are a bit pricey @ $25k and up depending on options, they are more of a turn key solution.
