Who wants a brand new W12 Engine?

Just came across this on ebay - brand new W12 Long Block engine for $11K in CA. Now wouldn't that make a nice center piece for a project TReg! $11K doesn't seem that bad for a brand new W12...

Engine Long Block New OEM 04 10 VW Touareg 6 0L W12 Code Bjn | eBay

I have absolutely no affiliation with the seller but I thought it would an interesting post.

I just checked out their store and they also have a couple of very nice sets of 4 TReg wheels, brand new, 17s & 18s for cheap money too if anyone's interested...

No kidding! Actually, I think $11K is down right cheap for a new (not even just rebuilt!) Touareg W12 engine, isn't it? I really have no idea but that seems very cheap to me. I didn't look at it all that closely, perhaps it's missing some key, expensive, parts? Of course, you'd have to get all the accessories (AC, Fuel Pumps, Alternator, Pulleys, etc.), so I suppose that stuff would add up. Is the transmission the same?

Anyhow, there are certainly a few folks around here who have the skills, I'm just really hoping it's someone close to me so I can go for a test ride!

How much more for all the parts to make it work?
$11000?

Good rat rod fodder. Start with a T-bucket. Megasquirt, Lysholm supercharger, a/c evaporator in plenum, dry sump, ITBs, zoomie headers, 2-speed transmission with PTO for accessories, ford 9", 15" slicks. Someone do it.

I saw in his store he also had rs4 and rs6 blocks. That could possibly be a better swap from our V8s. I wonder if we could get JHM to flash the engine parameters from Audi to our ECU. That could be a weekend swap!
