Hey guys. Would a RE cosmo fit into an S4 with the twin turbosetup? I think there was someone a long time ago that had this setup but I want to double check. Could i use the downpipe from the FD for it? will it fit with no problem?



I also want to use the stock PS and AC. Will my accessory bracker from the s4 fit? Would I have to change the water pump housing/pump from the RE to an s4 and the pulleys?

I think I just answered some of my questions.\



I finally found the website of the person I was thinking of. And yes you have plenty of room for the twin turbos and DP.

I had an FC water pump put on my RE. I wanted to keep the timing marks from the original engine so I used the cosmo pullies.

Hey guys I'm about to dump the RE into the car. The older engine is almost out but I forgot. The s5 flywheel should work correctly with the RE, correct. Same rotors and weights as the FD?



I don't feel like spending a few hundred dollars on a aftermark flywheel. I'm try to do as cheap as possible.





I"m going to put my current turbo setup on the Cosmo.



Thanks

Carlos

I'm not too sure about the S5 flywheel but you can use the FD one but you must with any flywheel use the counter weights that are on the RE engine do no change them. also any after market FC flywheel will work..I have an ACT extreme in mine.
