Over the weekend I scoped out an A4 that’s been living at a performance shop’s parking lot for a long time.
Soon I’ll be removing the engine that is sitting in this 2.8 B5 A4 to attempt to use in my S4.
Sizing up what I’ll need to disconnect and remove to get the engine into a trailer.
The components are a bit dusty from the car sitting for years.
Luckily the engine is literally just sitting on the engine mounts, it can be rocked forward and back by hand, nothing else is attached. The front will need to come off, along with swinging the AC compressor out of the way, but I’m hopeful this extraction won’t take more than an hour.
