    Good Day all.
    name's Bill Smith (there's a lot of us about) just joined and will be asking for tuning info and tips for Audi 8-0 2.6E Quattro which I will shortly (when the garage is built) be rebuilding and upgrading in all departments.

    As a starter does the 2.8E engine drop straight in as a replacement for the 2.6E and if so what management mods are required?

    What year is the car? Are both engines carb fed or do they have fuel injection?

    Car is a 1994 and is Fuel injected.
    The 2.8 would be F.I. also

    They are diesel engines are they not? Both should drop in but I can't see if the gearbox is different between them. I also think you'll need a loom and ecu from the donor vehicle.
