Some V8's came with sport seats. However, I think if you look that V8 with the
turbo will cost more to put together than you think. I got a quote of over
$10k to do that, add to that the 10k+ for a 90/91V8 PLUS $2k for brakes PLUS
$1500 for suspension, and you could have the 93 S4 and some change left over,
or at least less of a maintainance headache. I love my V8 and would like say
325hp from it, but not from that approach. A supercharger system would be much
more cost effective, and it will give you the power where you need it most.
