Look for OB1 gearboxes (A4 and A5 used them). These are the FWD version with the differential right at the front of the gearbox. With one of these, you could probably away with very little / no chassis stretch, but that would help with the weight distribution. You get petrol and diesel variants. Personally I'd got for a petrol version as they have shorter ratios better suited to a high-revving engine. https://www.ebay.co....wQAAOSwYmZXKfnp

would the petrol versions be any weaker than the diesel versions or doesnt it matter on these later boxes
also is the s tronic a dsg or just standard auto
many thanks for the help so far guys

I'm not sure on relative strengths. They are mostly likely essentially the same save for different ratios, but who knows.
I think the auto is a CVT rather than a DSG, so not really what you want.
Alternatively, if you get a complete RS5 engine / gearbox, you could isolate the rear gearbox output and effectively just run the front outputs. Again, not sure on relatively torque capacities on this arrangement (although its used to driving a 1700kg RS4/5, so...)

Will be interesting to follow this. Once thought about doing something similar, but then with the shorter V6 and that short building longitudinal gearbox. Plenty of power with a tuned suercharger. ;-)

too late for a v6 instead.
already bought the v8 in s5 form , asking too much for the rs4/5 version
but this can be converted to rs spec if needed but i aint bothered about horsepower
its the v8 noise and that dsg shift that interest me, very motorsport sounding.
but saying that if i cant source a dsg and try and work out what it needs to run it properly
i may refer to a cvt with the pcs controllers
