Mounts:
Engine Mounts for Codes ATW/AEB/external waterpump blocks:

Engine Mount for Codes AWD/AWW/AWP/all internal waterpump blocks:
-You'll need custom mounts for the engine
Trans Mount for O20:
-020 trans bolts right in with OE mounts

Which 20v engine should you use?
Engine code AEB from the 97-99 Audi A4 and VW Passat.
Benifits:
-use of Mk1 motor mounts, no need for custom mounts
-larger intake and exahust ports:
-big intake ports: 54mm x 26mm (small ports: 43mm x 26mm)
-big exhaust ports: 36mm (small ports: 33mm)
-20mm wrist-pins (later engines have 19mm)
Cons:
-AEB engines are hard to find, and the euro versions (AGU/ADR) are difficult to find/import
Forged Internals?
AEB are all cast
AUG auto is cast, AUG manual is forged
AWD/AWW/AWP/AWM are all forged

Re: (Boostin20v)

But can the cast internals keep up with big turbo setups?

Re: (redvdubvert)

the AEB uses an external water pump, an intermediate shaft....its very much like an older 8v or 16v. the newer engines are internal water pumps without the intermediate shaft.
