Awesome job!!! I don't know how I missed this thread.This is an insane build, I love it. All the V8 swaps I've seen are very interesting and impressive in there own right, but this is another level by keeping the AWD system intact.

I wish there was a way to get the motor moved further back but I understand the layout of these cars just won't allow for it. I'd love to be able to stuff a N/A LSx or LT2 (heck, I'm not a fan of Ford but the Coyote engines are impressive as well) in my car, close the hood and no one be the wiser till you start it up...this is the closet I guess I'll ever get to seeing that.

Even when you mentioned the Audi V8s being more compact...it made me reminisce about thinking whether a W8 would fit in one of our vehicles after seeing RWD LS swaps...but it would probably be a nightmare to even attempt it and not worth the effort compared to an LS swap like this.

Prior to this the Hondaru swap was about the most interesting swap for me just because it kept the AWD system. Again, love seeing people with your fabrication skills build what people like me can only imagine.
