Will it fit into an A1 or is there a clearance problem? I know that this motor is taller than the other 4cyl engines. I have never owned a Rabbit and am thinking about a bad a$$ motor to put in one. Maybe even run carbs on her, that would be fun.

Re: ABA and a 16v head? (Big CADDY)

Big Caddy's right, the compression ratio of that set-up with stock pistons would be about 7.8:1, not bad for a turbo but way too low for NA. The swap is doable but list of other complications and parts is pretty long. If you really want a 2.0L 16v engine go for a 9A Passat engine you'll get similar performance much less hassle.
