Re: Audi A4 Power

3 liters with 5V/cylinder = 30V is the last i heard.. i don't
know what's taking them so long.. the 5 valve 4 banger is out
and the V6 is a very close descendant of the inline 4....

the 3.7 V8 is not new. originally debuted in late 1988. minor tweaks
here and there, but still basically a siamesed 1.8 16V golf GTI engine
(which goes back even further) with a super light alloy block. even the
distributors are interchangeable with a GTI 16V... (latest discovery)
but there's no way a V8 is going to fit inside an A4 engine compartment.
i don't think that even the straight 5 would fit... it looked pretty
cramped with just the V6.. (the mechanic here was already bitching
luck a stuck pig)
