- Does the new S4 V8 with it's 6sp fit into the
2.7T A6/AR frame?
- Does the new S4 V8 engine bolt pattern matches
the 2.7T 6sp tranny?

... engineering capability than Audi, you'll never get it in.
1) I can not get the V8 Allroad in Canada
2) there is no 6sp with V8 (except in the new S4)
3) the V8 has a wider rpm range and weight the same
So how does this gets me closer to a 6 speeds
V8 Allroad?. VR_Life, you are no fun!
the "new V8" with the timing belt in the back
fits in the new S4 (tip and 6sp) and in the
Allroad (same as the A6). Your story about the
streched A6 applies to the older V8.
No I do not have more engineering capability
than Audi, I just want to leverage what they
have recently done in the repackaging of the V8!
This should be possible in the bolt on category,
I guess from the quality of the replies, nobody
has done it!

but wouldn't it be easier to import a Allroad with V8 from the US? According to RIV.ca it doesn't say that the 05 Allroad is inadmissable. In my experience this is a good sign, as they usually will miss vehicles that may enter Canada, but they will not miss the one's that can't.
Good Luck, and if you get the V8 into the Allroad (either importing or modifying) you will love the car.
So what's easier / cheaper,
option A) putting a 6 sp tranny in a Tip 4.2
option B) putting the "new V8" in my 2001 6sp

The 2.7T with the right turbo upgrades and ECU software has the ability to make GOBS MORE power than the stock V8. Wit the V8 all you can do is try to shoehorn in turbos. (RS6) and the 6 speed can't take the power. So all that is left for the V8 is to Supercharge it and still a properly modded 2.7T will beat it.. and at less cost than the engine swap.
