Question Engine sawap?

Ok, here's the deal........ My buddy has a 99' wagon with the 1.8T gasser in it. There is a wrench about 200 miles south of here that wants the motor. He said that he would swap engines, a Diesel for a gasser and do the full install....everything, just for the gasser engine. He said the engine mounts are the same :blah: :blah: and that it would work.

I have not spoken to the wrench directly.

........Questions, can this be done? What about the computers? What about the exhaust? What about the heat shield? Are the transmissions the same? Does anyone have first hand knowledge of this being done before?


My buddy doesn't care what's under the hood. He does not maintaine an engine like most of us but it gets done. He drives about 80K a year........... will it be worth it? :shrug:

Before I worried about the tranny, ecm, and other junk, I'd ask myself why n the world someone would trade a TDI for the 1.8t.... Dont make no sense

He's a racer...... wants the motor to race. He can get Diesels pretty easy, it's the gassers he has trouble with.

Just have the " Racer " buy the whole car . Sounds like the start of some serious torture for both parties involved ! :
