      The B6 S4 chain driven 4.2L is a very different engine to the belt driven 4.2L used in the C5 and D2, APR is very correct that it won't work. Best advice is to stick with the stock airbox, time and...

      Have you posted this on Audizine or Audiworld? Vortex is pretty much a wasteland when it comes to the C5 platform.... no one comes to this site to look for parts or tech or to discuss it.

      Funny thing is his profile which lists an '89 Golf.... which as a 5 door hatchback effectively IS a mini-wagon.

      The dimensions for the rain tray cover are the same. Hell the rain tray cover itself is the same, just the removable insert that covers the battery in the 4.2L and S6 is different to allow access to...

      Engine wise all the NA engines are more "reliable" than the 2.7T, but that's not really a good measure since "reliability" is directly related to maintenance and the 2.7T just happens to require the...

      The difference between a bare bones OEM 2.7T and 4.2L in terms of fuel economy is about 2 or 3 mpg at best, mod the 2.7T for power all of a sudden the 4.2L will look economical. The A6 is not...

      You would probably do better with a 2.7T then as there's really no modding market for the 4.2L. Too few produced + natural aspiration and a non-boost intended engine means there's almost no...

      I'd love to drop an 4.2TT into my 4.2L, hell I'd love to just buy an RS6 full out. Barring a lottery win that's just not realistic for me. Something like an RS6 is not a car that you can skip or...

      FYI, that car would have been a 1992 in the US. Canada didn't get a 1992 Corrado, the 1992 G60's were sold as 91's and the VR6's as 93's. The actual 1993 model year cars came with the refreshed...
