I am interested in doing a motor swap on my 99 GL TDI. I would like to swap in a 1.8T and I am wondering about the problems that may arise from this swap. Any info that you guys have would be great.

no one has done it yet because of the values of our cars (still quite high...especially with your car being a TDI) Sell your car and buy a used 1.8t. Best value and more reliable.

I always thought about swapping a VR6 into my 2.0 once I hit 100k. Because there are no 4door VRs out there that I know of. Maybe even a 24v VR6.

I wouldn't mind doing a VR swap as well, but the 1.8T seems so much easier to mod.
