A really silly, but serious, request

Okay,

I have one that should build some chuckles here.

Does anyone have an 80/90, 80/90q, 4k, 4kq, CGT with the engine removed?

I need you to take some measurements.

Basically what I'm looking for is the following:

Distance from rad-support to firewall.
Distance from top of subframe to bottom of hood
Width of engine compartment.  -> This measurement may require a few different
locations...I suspect the engine bay is wide near the firewall, shrinks around
the front wheels and then widens again in front of the wheels.

I essentially want to know the rough measurements of the engine compartment, so
that I can determine whether a particular engine/tranny combination might fit
in the 80/90q or the 4kq platform.  I suspect if it fits in one, it's going to
fit in the other.


I guess I'd also need to know the measurement from the front edge of the 5spd
Audi tranny bellhousing to the firewall.  Is the bellhousing in front, or
behind the firewall?
