Amazing work...I'm confused though. You orignally had a 1.8t then tried out a W8 and finally decided on a bored out 1.8t?
In Taiwan

We only has 2.0 ( FF ) ,1.8T ( FF ) , 2.3 V5 ( FF ) , 2.8 V6 ( FF ) , 4.0 W8 ( 4motion ) .

I need 4motion , So I bought a W8 and tuned it.

Yea, I agree the W8 has too much weight up front. Its ideal to get a more tuneable 1.8t and build it up to exceed the power of a W8. Power w/ the small turbo 4 is not nearly as smooth as the 8 but it will get the job done. I guess they don't sell the V6 4- motion because Taipei proper never sees snow (no market for the car). I hope you were able to sell the W8 engine for a good price.
