Default RS6 turbo motor available!

What would you think is involved in swapping an RS6 twin turbo motor into an Audi A8 or VW Phaeton?

I found one in a junk yard not too far from me. Also has the 5 speed tip.

Default Swapping is my favorite thing.

Go ahead, it's only nuts and bolts.

Default Second thought.

1; Your car is still under warranty.
2; The car way too heavy, you wouldn't be impressed with the performance.
3; It would be tough to sell your original engine.
In your case, I would upgrade to the W12.

Default Tozo couldn't be more correct...

The performance increase compared to the $75k to $100k it will cost you to do the swap is very little. The 4.2T won't fit witout some major customizing and possibly resolving the frame rails. Just by a Continental Flying Spur and save yourself time and money.

Default Re: Second thought.

RS6 motor has more torque and comes in sooner than the W12.

What can I do to become impressed more with its performance, besides selling it? There's gotta be something more.

Warranty doesn't bother me much - I own it outright. In two years the warranty expires. I can wait.

I don't need to sell my original engine.

Default In 2 years I doubt that engine will be available at that yard.
