 No im currently driving my uncle's 90 audi V8 Q... why would i try putting=

ffy mountain bike if need be hahaha ... Anyways i was looking for more a 4.=
2 out of the 92-94 audi V8 not one of the newer one's... i doubt i could af=
ford a newer V8 from an A8 / S8. But you know what they say, there's no rep=
lacement for displacement.. so *shrug* i dunno just trying to gather inform=

y future audi project will be for, this is more my around the town car with=
 a nice stereo in it and for some long trips. Thanks for the information! G=

to have a 5-speed it would be a different story ... the 5-speeds have the
