      weight wise that motor is alot farther forward then most rear mount swaps i have seen so maybe itll balance out a bit better then expected. and im sure there is going to be something going up front other than fuel and a battery, this guy does seam to know what he is doing.

      i look forward to whatching this progress further

      All I have to say is that this guy is the victor of 2011 because I don't think we will see anything of this magnitude soon. The only way we will know if this car is truly balanced is if he takes it to get all four wheels weighed. Overall a great build.
      There's no such thing as too much of anything but to little results in the need for more.

      guys OBVIOUSLY this is a motor out of an Audi V8 (yes they did make a car named V8), its basically the pre-A8. It came with either a 3.6 or the better known 4.2. 3.6 250bhp, 4.2 had 280bhp.
