  1. 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!
  2. 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...
  3. 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...
  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. 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...
  11. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    Hey all, this is my first post here I recently bought a 2001 GL 2dr 2.0l golf (manual of course) and I want to mod the crap out of it, problem is from what I've picked up the 2.0l sucks for modding. So I set out on a search for a 1.8l turbo engine and I found one... the problemo is that its...
  12. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    So I've been thinking about swapping my 2.0 inline 4 and the 5-speed manual transmission in my golf city with a 24 valve 2.8-litre VR6 engine and the 6-speed manual that comes with the Jetta. (Hoping to get both of these out of the same car at a local pick n pull junkyard so they will be...
  13. Scirocco
    Hello everyone! I'm looking for anyone who might have a photocopy or pdf of the bentley manual for the scirocco. My understanding is that it has body dimensions listed as well as engine bay dimensions. I don't have access to one of the manuals myself at the moment, and I need to get my hands on...
  14. Golf V & Jetta V
    I kinda touched on this in my last post. I have an 06 GLI that wasn’t very well maintained by the previous owner. Upon inspection, I realized it’s going to end extreme maintenance or a total swap. I find that the swap would probably be less of a headache than a restoration of the current. I’m...
  15. Golf V & Jetta V
    Alright boys, it’s time. I bought my 06 GLI a month and a half ago and tried so much to fix the ongoing issue. Drove it home at about 50 miles an hour on the highway and the timing belt broke. Many issues but those are irrelevant now. I’m almost certain before the tear down that there’s gonna be...
  16. Golf II & Jetta II
    For a weird reason i have to change my 1.8l into a smaller engine so i can register my car, we have some weird registration rules in my country. I always wanted to upgrade my engine anyway but i get confused when it gets to picking one, what’s a good 1.6l engine that i could play around with and...
  17. Golf I & Jetta I
    Greetings. As I am new here on the forum, i dont know if this subject already exists. I am in progress of swapping my Golf MK1 with an ABF 1.4 16V engine from Polo 6N1 with original Polo EFI and I have come to a hold regarding the instrument cluster. The Polo instrument cluster is too big to fit...

    Hey guys, Looking to build an engine on the side to hold about 550-650bhp and eventually go into my usd mk6 golf r. I am not having any luck finding either full motors or even short blocks from a golf r(dont want to buy a crate motor). I know the motor is a ea113 but do the bpy motors work for...
  19. Golf V & Jetta V
    Hey guys, My girlfriend recently ran into a deer and long story short the apron is mangled and its a write off. I have the car as a parts car currently and i wanted to start a new project and put the 1.8 turbo on the 2.5 MKV i have as a beater. My question is this, has anyone else done this...
