I brought some 4000Q rotors to a local shop to be turned (yes, they had a little bit left on 'em) and one of the young pup tire changers slides up to me and asks me if I know Audis. "Well, yes, sort of," I said. He wants to know where he can get a complete 225 hp TT drive train; money is no object. So I give him some names that I know of: Chris at Force 5, DADs in Sacramento, etc. Later, when I came back to get the rotors, I had the website URLs and phone numbers for him. He says that the previous week some customer let him drive a TT to find a possible tire vibration and he really liked the car, so....he is looking for a complete TT drive train to put in, yes, you guessed it, a 7-year-old VW Golf. I just said nothing....
Back in my day, kids only did "smart" conversions, like 327s into 55-57 Chevies, or my attempt (being then a Mopar guy) a 341 cu. in. DeSoto Hemi into a '55 Dodge convertible (don't ask).
