three part question:

(1)What's the highest revving motor around 300 horsepower
that you can bolt to the Audi 016 transaxle with an adapter plate?

(2)Who sells turnkey performance spec audi trans 400+hp

(3) I'm having trouble finding exactly what engines fit to the audi and what doesnt.
are these all my choices?
I was really hoping for the Lexus 1UZ-FE 4.0 DOHC V8 to be a canidate for the audi trans.

(a) 86+Chevy V8,

(b) 4.3 V6 (pre '96)

(c) Pre '86 Chevy V8

(d) Pre '86 Chevy 3.8 V6 RWD

(e) Buick V6 3.8 RWD

(f) Ford 289, 302, 351

(g) Ford 3.8 RWD V6

(h) GM FWD V6


did i make a mistake? or is this all there is?
please tell me the 1UZ-FE fits

Adapters can be made fairly easy. There should be no reason a Lexus could not bolt to an Audi with a plate.

I spoke with Kennedy Engineering,
it doesnt seem they are interested in making this adapter, as its not common.
I was instructed to call tomorrow and talk with the engineer and ask if they can do it for a little extra cash.

Here's one I found on a GT40 forum.
He had it made at http://www.bncproducts.com.au/

anyone make one stateside?

problem solved, EAMartin got me covered.

check this out, ITBs!
I know it wont be visible, but still,
I love shiny parts. and the price is very good for V8 ITBs
that's one major reason I like this motor, big aftermarket for an import v8.

wonder who makes a good air box for this kit
i found these http://www.twminduction.com/airbox.htm

I just found out the Gm 3800 Sc from oilpan to top of SC is 660mm
the lexus 4.0 1uzfe engine is 660mm from oilpan to top of induction.
looks like the replica v12 engine cover will fit.

check out this air box. Look where the filters can go. pretty trick.
the technician said he can custom make one with an angled bottom plate to mount flush to the inward angled throttle bodies of the OBX ITB kit.

it can be trimmed down pretty low profile.
The intake tubes can also be swapped for oval-to-round for even lower profile.
So it can fit under the replica v12 cover. hopefully. if not i'll scrap the itbs and keep it stock.




its gonna look sick. I'll route it under the intake like Rt did
but it wont look or operate as well as RTs

*like my cut away Photoshop work there?

I just did some measurements. The ITBs come in just slightly lower than stock intake.
so I can swap the 50mm tall stacks for 20mm tall and use a low profile box that will make the total engine height no more than 26" 660mm

Remeber changing the intake tract length (shorter) will shift the power up the range.

that's cool. I like higher band power anyway. like a 600 sportbike vs a 1000 of the same model

unless that's a bad thing? idk, clutch wear and tear...? I dont know what could be bad about it. waste gas...
