Hi,

I am looking to purchase a used engine for my rabbit. 2008 2.5L 5-Cyl 5MT. My current stock engine is engine code B according to my vins 5th digit, Which I know is a CBUA ( 3 02 senors).

I cannot find a B engine code anywhere near me but I can find engine code M which is a CBTA Jetta Engine (2 02 sensors). They are all over the place and a dime a dozen for low mileage ones.

Will I have any issues swapping from an Rabbit Engine code B > Jetta Engine Code M ? With my car being a 5speed manual, will that effect anything swap wise? Thank you!!!

AFAIK they're totally interchangeable. CBTA is the way to go anyway, less pesky emmisions stuff in the way. Make sure the donor car is an '08+ to avoid possible timing chain issues.
