    MRC Tuning UK swapping B7 RS4 4.2 FSI V8 into B5 and turbocharging it

    This is just the beginning of this project but it got our attention. MRC Tuning is swapping the B7 RS4 4.2 direct injected V8 into a B5 shell. The engine will fit but it sure will be tight in the bay. A K24 turbo was posted in the engine bay next to the motor although they plan to go to something much larger. How they intend to handle the tuning, fueling, as well as hardware is beyond us but we are watching closely and wish them luck.

    Please detail this build closely MRC as nobody has done anything like it and we can't wait to see what this motor does when turbocharged.

    I really hope we get to see this through to a completed, fully functional car.
