Audi 20v

If you want a perfectly good V8 engine I have one that was going to be 
installed in my Coupe quattro.  Other than fabrication of exhaust, 
relocation of the radiator to the center, and the battery to the trunk, it's 
a pretty easy way to double your horsepower.

The only reason I didn't go forward wit hthat project is I bought a TT 
Quattro instead. (At least it's still a 20V!)

  You can probably find a 10V turbo or 20V turbo still in the car.
  Accidents, bad clutches or transmissions may make the car financially
  unworthy of repair, and the owners can get more money parting them
  out. Find one nearby to save on shipping.  Or try one of the usual
  used parts sources: or  If you
  are ambitious, you might try a V8. :)
