BTDT, have the T-Shirt. I did a two-step conversion over the course of two summers.  From UFO's to G60s the first summer and from G-60s to BIRA the next.  While I don't know all the struts that work, I know that urS4/S6 struts will bolt right in.  I also know that 5000/100 struts do not, because a friend tried to do his V8, before I did my 200, with 5000 struts and he found that the bearings
were smaller in some spots (cannot remember exactly where).  BTW, I obtained all of the necessary parts for less than $500 from a fellow who was parting out a '94 S4.
