I don't see why not, but considering their other engine prices, I wouldn't be surprised if it was over the $10k mark. And that is a little high for an unproven engine. Maybe in a few years after they work out the bugs.
interesting note: the w8 fits into the mark4 jetta/golf. last year i think in Motor Trend there were spy shots of jettas running with w8 engines.. at the time it was reported that these would be 350 hp M3 fighters. since then i havent heard a word. maybe if we all ask very nicely, vw will give us this package.. hehe..
I personaly think that the vr8 is a much better idea in an older dub than the vr8. It would be lighter I think and even though it would not rev as high, it would have alot more torque potential. Inline engines not only have a supierior power band but are a lot easier to work with and turbo charge
I think of it this way - if HPA can get 600hp from a Twin Turbo 24v VR6 - what could they get with a Twin Turbo W8? 1000HP? Imagine a new passat W8 with a twin turbo setup and 1000 hp....how cool would that be? http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
