Can't wait to see it rolling!
They won't:(
I measured. Also, Audi (and all other liquid cooled VAG engines, I believe) up until very recently are iron block.

I was strongly considering flipping an Audi gearbox and going with a rear engine Audi 2.7tt, but it gets pretty gnarly to position the starter and stuff.

For a mid engine Audi setup you would have your crank pulley about 6 inches further forward. The Acura setup places the axle right about in the middle of the pan. Here is a nice clean version of the one I'm using.
