  1. Golf/GTI VI
    Hello, I recently bought a 1.6L Golf MK6 7speed DSG with 98000 km on it, which is low considering it was made 10 years ago. All I’ve done to the car up until now is cosmetic mods and a new exhaust to make it sound nice. I was wondering if it’s possible to easily swap the 2.0 Turbo engine into it...
  2. Golf II & Jetta II
    Whats up yall. I've been thinking about engine swapping my 1986 Mk2 diesel (1.6NA) golf with something fun to make it a bit of a racecar. I've heard about the VR6 and 1.8t swaps but I really don't know what's best. I've also seen people making really good power out of the 1.6T and 1.9T AAZ...
  3. 2.5l Inline-5 Engine Forum
    Hi All, I wanted to have some insights on how to approach an engine swap from a BGx to a CBxA. The timing chaining is rattling hard and was apparently changed 3 years ago. I put less than 15K miles on the vehicle since. I cannot guarantee if the engine was properly fixed the first time around...
  4. A4, S4, RS4 (B5)
    Hi, I’ve searched the old threads and came across one guy doing this but the thread seems to have died many moons ago. As the title says - I’m going to be swapping a 1.8T AEB into a 1.6 body - now I know the general consensus on this is to just buy a Quattro 1.8T but these are hard to get...
  5. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    I recently destroyed my 2.0 and was looking into swaps. I want to do something that doesn’t get done a lot. Is it possible to swap a b series out of a Honda into the mk4 golf? If so how difficult, how much fab work would I need to have done, do they make customs mounts for the engine etc.
  6. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    I'm swapping a 1.8t AWP for the same engine with less miles, will I need new mounts, gaskets, or anything other than a new turbo, water pump and timing belt which I've already got. Specifically I need to know what if any gaskets or mounts or tubes I'd need to replace. It's my first time doing...
  7. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    Greetings, Currently, I am swapping a 1.8T into a mk3 golf cabrio and have my wiring sorted and about ready to fire. The ECU has already been sent off and returned with the immob defeated (no tune). I tried cranking the car and unfortunately my starter was bad, but I was still able to read the...
  8. Cabriolet
    I don’t know what to do with my dads 1986 cabriolet that hasn’t moved in years that has terrible interior because of it. From people with experience is it better to try to restore all the interior and top for $2000+ on my highschooler budget. Or rip out the interior and try to make it fast and...
  9. Jetta/GLI VI
    Hey guys, new here and this probably sounds like a stupid question…but is it possible to LS swap my mk6 jetta. Assuming I had the money and time, is this possible and has anyone done it yet?
  10. Golf V & Jetta V
    Ok so I have a MKV Jetta 2.5l then my buddy has a 08 MKV Jetta it’s the 2.0T Wolfsburg edition. How difficult would it be to put he’s engine into the 2.5!
  11. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    Currently have a 1.8t mkiv GTI. Love it but I'm at 212,xxx miles. So I'm starting to explore engine swaps. I know I can go with another 1.8t, and I may, but was curious what you all have done or suggest doing. Yes I know "it depends how deep your pockets are" is a reply. I'll explore costs. Just...
  12. The Volkswagen Lounge
    So it's quite basic. I've done some headwork to my 1.8 n/a and she's hit over 300k km. I love my car too much to sell her for something else, so let's talk engine swap. I've heard everything about how easy everything fits, but most things that sound too good to be true usually are, so let's hear...
  13. CC
    2010 VW CC 2.0 TSI M/T I recently removed my engine to repair bent valves due to a timing chain tensioner fault. I also upgraded the clutch and flywheel. But I have no idea how to run coolant, transmission fluid, power steering fluid ect. back through the vehicle correctly once the motor is...
  14. Golf V & Jetta V
    I have two Mk 5s with the 2.5L engine and 5 speed manual transmissions. One is a 2009 Rabbit and the other a 2010 Jetta Wagon. A tree fell on the 2009 Rabbit and beat the heck out of the body. That car has fewer than 60,000 mile on it while the Jetta Wagon has over 130,000 miles on it. I'm...
  15. Passat (B7)
    I bought a 2014 passat SE two months ago as a project. It was running REALLY rough and had a few codes on. Namely cylinder one and four missfire. Replaced all the plugs and coils and then the car would no longer start. So I checked the codes again and they were still there along with a camshaft...
  16. 2.5l Inline-5 Engine Forum
    Hello! I'm hoping for some input about repairs, upgrades, and the general durability of the 2.5L motor. I've had my Golf for about 5 years, and the previous owner had installed a Neuspeed CAI, a K&N conical filter, and a nice custom catback exhaust that sounds great and has held up well. I've...
  17. Golf II & Jetta II
    Hi! im in the middle of the well known 1.8t swap, I bought a complete kit with everything besides the wiring done. So I searched all the forums dry, found rubjohny’s guide at clubgti and worked my way from there. Made sure all the wires and colors matched up, followed it and took my time doing...
  18. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    Hi, I have recently engine swapped my golf 4 from a 1,6l BCB to a 1,8T AGU, and I saw that the check valves on the brake booster is a little different. This is the one from the AGU: And this is the one from the BCB: As you can see, the AGU one has an extra "outlet" (don't know what it is...
  19. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    I have a 2001 Jetta with a 2.0L 5 speed, and I’m using it as my fun project car so I can learn how to really get into working on cars. My sister has a 2002 Beetle with a 1.8L Turbo 5 speed That’s in really rough shape and just sitting in storage. Under the hood these engines look very similar...
