I know of a car where a 20 V Turbo engine was in mechanically, not 
electrically.  The mechanic never got around to finishing the job, so the 
owner put the original motor back in, sold the car, engine, and bought a V8. 
 Looking at the intake manifold, I think you need to do some hood 
modifications also.  I think that in the US, the S4 only came with 5 speeds. 
 Not an impossible swap, but it would be expensive.

I'm getting close to purchasing a spring/shock kit, but haven't quite made 
up my mind yet.  E-mail me directly if you want more info.  John Beckius at 
Sportwheels is working on a sway bar kit, but isn't finished yet.
