    I know nothing about cars. Short story my timing belt failed and it'll be cheaper to get a new engine. Searching online im finding the 3.6l tsi is cheaper than the 2.0. Some as low as $1400. So would I be able to put the 3.6l in even tho my car originally had a 2.0? Thanks in advance.

    I know that this is the golf forum but because the engine is very similar and I figured this thread gets more attention, I had an oil seal blow out and long story short, I need a rebuild or a swap because I have rod knock. My car has a JH engine and I know a guy with an RD engine. Does anyone...

    If I swapped the audi 07k into my rabbit, would I be able to use the OEM ecu, wiring harness, and trans? I wouldn't see why not, it seems like a plug and play swap but I wanted to confirm that before I sink a boat load of money into a swap.

    Planning on doing a complete engine swap from AHF to ALH. Original engine had a runaway. Repairing it proved more costly than a complete engine swap. Any tips and tricks or things to look out for? Thanks Hillmi
