  2. 1.8T Engine Forum
    As the title states, I’m swapping a longitudinal 1.8t (amb) from a b6 into my mk2 gti and I’m making it transverse. I was in the process of installing my clutch when I realized my crank has a pilot bearing where as the transverse cranks did not. My question is does anyone know if the shaft on my...

    Hello all, I am close to purchasing a donor car for an AHU swap. My car is a 1989 Jetta Wolfsburg with the 1.6 NA and manual transmission. The donor is a 1999 MK3 Jetta TDI with a manual. My car is already CE2. My question is, what is needed for the swap that is not from either my car or the...

    I know many folks on the mk4 chassis have done the mk6 / mk7 wheel swap (read trough many of these threads), but haven't found any with an A5 wheel (talking Non-Multifunction Steering Wheel here) - which is the one I'm contemplating. From my research there are 2 harnesses for the Beetle A5...

Let's say I have a salvage 3.6L Passat with a DSG from any year between 2012 to 2019, is there a possibility that I could kick out...

I bought a clutch kit years ago and finally installed it last weekend. I finally got motivated because I purchased a 3.6 VR6 for the audi...
  10. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    So as the title states my 2000 Jetta 1.8t awd has a stage 2 awp ecu installed. But the problem is the car still has the narrowband O2 sensor and harness which is causing it to run pretty wonky. My question is how can I install a wideband O2 harness to alleviate this issue. Is there a write up...

    I have a 2017 FL A3 with a Dq250 and I want the gearing of an S3 Dq250. Does anyone know if this would be a direct swap? Or what all would be needed to be changed besides the gearbox for the swap to work?

    Looking for any and all information about swapping a mk5 5 cylinder into a mk4 platform. Engines are easy to come by but I am wondering what year/model engine harness I will need as well as ecu. Since its a TT I am hoping to mate to the o2m trans in the car to keep it awd, can I use a 1.8t...

    Hey all, I just swapped a 3.6 vr6 to my '06 GTI and I'm running into a couple issues at the moment. 1. When attempting to code the ECU to 0000072 (FWD, manual trans), I get "Error 31: Request out of range - Coding Rejected." 2. The ABS module does not want to communicate with the ECU The ECU...
  14. Golf III & Jetta III
    My long-term project mk3.5 Cabrio is finally getting a VR6. I've known I wanted to do this swap for ages and have been researching/planning how to do it for at least 4 or 5 years. I had the absolutely perfect donor car come along, a very lightly crashed 2 owner 1997 Jetta GLX 5 speed in...
  15. TDI and Diesel Forum
    So on my '83 Jetta 1.6td to 1.9mTDI conversion does distance from intercooler make for much slower turbo response? i.e. mounting a large air-to-air intercooler in front of the radiator and connecting the turbo to the intake manifold via about 4-5 feet of 2.5" tubing result in less power vs. an...

  20. Golf I & Jetta I
    Hi all. Just finished my ABA swap w 4 speed 020 and I’d like a way to see my fuel economy. I’m not slamming the gas, I get to 4th gear ASAP, but I’m only getting around 27mpg, which is a bit pathetic for a 2.0 in a little MK1 body, when it gets 30+ in a MK3 body. How do I go about wiring in an...
