For the Audi V10 make 444bhp/398tq. Not too shabby and they sound cool!! In terms of installing one just depends how comfortable you are with electronics. Using the OE ECU isn't too bad of a job.

An LSX makes more sense, just depends what you want.....

I know zero about the Audi engine management system. On the LS series engines, depending on ECM, at a minimum you have to disable a number of diagnostic trouble codes and VATS (anti-theft) to get them running stand alone. There are also considerations for transmission control, gauges and other items. Are the Audi engine control systems modular enough and programmable enough to extract and run stand alone? Do you know of anyone doing it?

Of course if money were limitless and a V10 necessary, I could always buy and frequently replace the engine carrying my namesake: http://www.engdev.com/?page_id=50

Haha, well I'm thinking about putting one of those in an E46 M3 for racing at the moment. Those turn up on ebay all the time. The S62 is another good option.

That's a cool build!

Regarding management for the Audi stuff it's direct inject so you'd need a Motec if you want stand alone. I'd look at the underground twin turbo lambo stuff for ideas there..

Almost makes me want to head out for PIR for a SCCA fix.

Go to ORP, 100x better track and it's 2 hours from us.

Never been there, guess I'll have to scope it out. Been a long time since I've done any racing on pavement, a little longer then it has been since I watched any.

Stumbled on this today. Lingenfelter has apparently built a flat crank LSX and started dyno testing. It definitely has the exotic sound that I'd want in my Gallardo kit car. Nevermind budget!

...a flat crank... In a 90 V8 now there is a farkingstupididea!
Sorry Mr. L and his operation I have never been a fan of at all!!

Yeah a while back I read up on flat cranks and their special design considerations around vibration. I remember reading balance shafts are employed in all the modern incarnations, but I honestly don't know a lot about it. Tell me why it sucks e. I want to learn.

Harmonic resonance, Primary and secondary balance, etc...
The reason that V8's are set in a 90 orientation and the cranks are not flat is that is is possible to balance the firing impulses by spacing them 90 Something that while not making power is not giving it away (as much) in the unbalanced system of a flat crank used in a flat or single plane cylinder layout. That is the simple stuff...

I think I've found my Gallardo kit car, LSx engine induction system. It'd be cool if both throttle bodies were drive by wire rather than master-slave. Guess I'll have to figure that part out on my own.

I'd really like to do something like this in my Nova. Not for performance reasons, but for the uniqueness of it.
