RE: 16v swap to 4k...

>The tranny question is moot. As you have to change the flywheel and install a

get a Quantum intake and exhaust manifold setup, and run with it.

Unless you know of a Quantum that came from the factory with a 16v motor, the
manifolds from an 8v one aren't going to fit ... however, since the original
question came from someone in the UK, perhaps he should look for a better
donor since Audi produced and sold a small number of late-model Coupes with
16v motors in them for the UK market.   They are not particularly common but
they *do* exist as I tracked one down five years ago when I contemplated
performing the same swap ... ended up going with a motor from Techtonics

>I do agree, however, that you could make an 8 valve just about as fast with a
little effort.

Me, too.  Unless you can get all the parts you need for the conversion off one
of the Coupes referred to above, it's a LOT of trouble for only a little
