Info on the 4.2L FSI
Just after lots of info on the 4.2L FSI V8, everything from technical build info to dimensions of the full engine, weight etc as well as any performance knowledge about the engine.
Being FSI it should be able to run 12psi boost easy through an intercooler with the 11:1 compression right? Have a guy near my place that is running 17psi through a 10:1 toyota v8 from the early 90's so I'd hope the audi engine would be able to stand up to it. What is the stock bottom end like? How much power are they known to hold and how much abuse can these engines take?
Also interested in some info on the 4.2L TDI V8. Is it the same as the FSI just diesel with glow plugs rather than spark plugs? Are the blocks the same etc?
Would love tech drawings etc of the engines as well if anyone has some.
I have googled and haven't been able to come up with a whole lot so thought i'd check out an audi community.
Thanks for your time guys.
EDIT: also are there any 6 speed manual transmission that will bolt up to the 4.2L FSI? I mean FR transmissions not the quattro ones. Is there a way to turn a quattro transmission into just a straight FR?
