You can do it! :thumbup: I will try to get all the specific details on how to perform a TDI swap up on the web page as soon as I can - could be a while though, tons of work. Also working on putting up all the info on how to Lift a MKII. :D
the swap is easy, its finding a donor in my budget is the hard part :(

It's a stock (almost) ;) :laugh: AHU. not mechanical. :thumbup:

Thanks for all the great comments! :D

And that is a NICE car! :) I like the M-TDI, but It's simple enough to install the full TDI harness that I prefer the TDI. :eek:

And to you guys looking to do this - I wish you luck finding a donor car. The swap itself isn't all that bad. :beer:

I've wanted to do this swap for years. I'm waiting for a driveable mk3 donor for super cheap to pop up locally. Daily that piece into a tree and have insurance cut me a check thus funding me to do this swap :laugh:

F*cking Jazzbob got a 1.9t for free in a new beetle. I love the dude but sometimes I just wanna punch him in the taint.

niiiice. AHU...isn't that from an mk3? I got a full 1Z swap from a 96 Passat. I thought it was a AAZ till my friend told me they're Mech. injection. AHU & 1Z is the same engine except different turbo correct?

God that's cool! :thumbup: The advantages of CE2... If I had that, I'd be doing that swap in a jiffy!

How did you tackle the pedal cluster? Did you have to modify anything for the drive-by-wire?
