  2. 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...

  5. Golf V & Jetta V
    I did it Boys and Girls!!! Swapping a dsg 02E to replace a Slush Box 09G is indeed Possible! Once you figured out the problematics (fitting the DSG shift selector, swapping tranny supports, installing a tdi starter on the dsg (cuz my dsg came from a TDI), figuring out the wiring, figuring out...

    Hello all. Long time reader, first time poster. I'm hoping to swap out the radio on my MK6 JSW TDI. I seem to be the only person on Earth that hates having a massive touchscreen in my face while I drive. It came with an RCD-510, and I'm thinking the most reasonable swap would be to a...
  7. 2.0 TSI and TFSI (EA888 Gen 3) Engine Forum
    Hi, I have a cracked engine block in my 2013 AUDI A6 C7 Hybrid. These cars are pretty rare, so it's not that easy to find engine with exact same code. As far as I know part number of my engine block is 06H 103 011 AM, so if I wanted to only change block of my engine, blocks from CAEB, CBF, CCT...

    Hi, wondering if it would be feasible to swap the 2.0t from my 2017 gti(auto, 6spd) into my 2010 cc sport(M6)..what should I know about this swap before seriously considering it? crashed the gti so obviously need to check for critical damage first, but they both have the 2.0t and so I am...
  9. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    Longtime lurker, first time poster (I finally got around to making an account today). I did the timing chains on my 12v VR6 Jetta in the following weeks after Christmas myself, using the guides and tips here. After doing it however, the car began puking ATF from near the mating point of the...

    Hey there. This is my first post and i would appreciate any input. I'm trying to figure out what to do about this car. The last owner couldn't get it to run at all.

  11. Jetta/GLI VI
    Has anyone successfully swapped an 02Q 6-speed into a MkVI Jetta that originally came with an 0A4 5-speed? I have a 2014 Jetta SE 1.8t with the 0A4 5-speed and I grenaded 2nd gear back in September. I've priced a full rebuild and it's just not feasible. Also having a hard time finding a...

    I have a 2001 Bora vr6 5 speed and my friend is getting 2 2003 jettas, both are 1.8t 5 speed, and he was offering to give me the transmission out of the one with a blown head gasket. After researching some I've found that the bellhousings are completely different. I have my motor, transmission...
