Find of the Day: 2002 Audi S6 Avant – Big Turbos and Manual Transmission

words: Bill Cho, photos: Craiglist 

After a title like that, do I even to explain why this is a Find of the Day? I mean who wouldn’t want a manual transmission swapped S6 Avant? But wait, there’s more. This is not a wolf in sheep’s clothing; this is a freaking wild boar in pig’s clothing.

The ‘normal’ S6 Avant came with the venerable 4.2L V8. This beast has the 2.7T V6 with two big Tial 605 v1 turbos installed.

The ad reads:

For sale is my 2002 Audi S6 with a built 2.7t motor swap. The turbos are Tial605 v1 that were purchased from 034 motorsports. The swap has approximately 6,000 miles on it. The swap was done by Tipcke performance and receipts can be provided upon request. Its a fantastic and really fast car that is fun to drive and can hold all your stuff! There are many details about this build, please ask any questions you may have.

This S6 is a hoot to drive. Both Addict Motorsport Design tunes run a conservative 28PSI. AMD has indicated this s6 will put down 550-575 WHP on the E85 tune.

Check out the cold start video for how the exhaust sounds:

Sought after features like Black Alcantara headliner and the warm weather package are included as well. The warm weather package includes a solar sunroof that powers a battery that will circulate the cabin air when its hot outside.
