View Full Version : new engine (motor swap)

Im thinking of adding another a4 to the stable. Problem is the car has no motor.
Body and ECU is 2000. What would be the most cost effective motor. The motor will be a used one. Since it was DBW, a ATW would be a direct swap. Also, with a new ECU, an AWM would be a direct swap right? Now, how would a AEB work? Whats involved in converting to a DBC? ANything else id have to do to convert DBW to DBC except for ECU swap?

To swap to DBC, I think you need (obviously) the motor, wiring harness, gauge cluster, and a cable gas pedal.

Not sure on what else, but thats a good start.
