    Default PVW feature 2000 A4 w/S6 v8 swap

    Featured in the November 2016 issue of PVW

    2000 A4, originally 1.8t(ATW) 5 speed. Swap was done by my self and my buddy Greg "swoops" over at Hardlines by Swoops winter/spring of 2014. I did the swap because I had access to a motor that I knew was in perfect working order. Motor came out of my buddy's 2002 S6 avant and had about 163,xxx miles on the motor when we took it out. He got the S6 with about 90k. This was not a junk yard motor nor did it come from a car that was wrecked and sitting. The car drove to shop and left with a 2.7 swap. I have maybe put 10k miles on the car since the swap was done and that guess is on the high side. Motor swap was done to be "plug and play" the motor harness and ECU plug right into the body harness. All wire adjustments have been done on the motor harness side, no wires or harness have been cut or spliced on the body harness side. If you really wanted to you could drop a 1.8 t back in the car plug it in and start it

    -paint and body I'd say 9/10. It has its little issues here and there , front bumper and hood have some rock ships, as it was a daily driver up till a few years ago but for a 15 year old car it's damn near perfect. No one believes the car is 15 years old when I tell them.
    -power steering has a little bit of whine every now and then, ever one I have spoke that has done this swap seems to have the same issue.
    -rain tray was trimmed to clear upper control arms
    -under side of the car is a little scrapped up as this car is lowered and static
    -there is a scratch on the hood about 5 inches long. I don't really pay attention to it since the hood is always open at the shows and you cant see it then

    I am sure there are thing I am missing. I am not trying to hid anything, any questions feel free to ask

    My asking price would be $25k OR best offer. AS IS wheels and everything and what ever extra parts I have This not a debate as to why this is too much or why I did this or why I did that. If anyone has comments that fall in line with that keep them to yourself and click a new topic. I do not need to explain as to why that is my price. If you know about these cars and things I have listed you shouldn't be wondering why that is my starting price. The car is also insured for an agreed value of $35 through Grundy Collector Car Insurance

    Car is currently on OZ Futuras which are included in the sale (for price listed)

    For interested parties: I have no horse in this race, but it's worth pointing out that this is Audi's old 4.2L V8, which has a timing belt... unlike the newer B6/B7 S4 4.2 V8's that can (and often do) have timing chain guide issues. This car for sale will have no such issues. Totally different system, far easier and cheaper servicing with the belt whether you DIY or take it to a shop.

    OP: Bro... I love your car. Super clean swap, looks OEM, terra cotta is rare and dope AF, etc. I'm sure you've heard this all before. GLWS!!
