Default 2002 A8L NEW ENGINE?

I was wondering if any new modern engines would work in my 2002 a8L. I want atleast 500hp.

A C5 RS6 powerplant with an APR tune would probably get you there.


How much money you got?
Anything is possible if you throw enough money at it!

Default Engine swap

look around on YouTube, I have seen LS swaps BUT, it is an expensive undertaking especially so if you are paying someone to do it. And even when finished it's still only a Frankencar!!

Nice find - amazing what turns up in Europe!

However, it's not the block you really need (unless the compression drop is in the deck height), you need all the other bits - like the ECU, manifolds and turbos!
Short block on its own is very similar to the block of the engine you already have, except I don't think they bolt in to the A8 engine bay without a bit of fettling.
The easier path would be to twin turbocharge the existing engine like Tozo did many years ago.
