View Full Version : swapping out the engine...

just wondering if its possible to put a 2.0t engine in our B5 A4s?

What would be the point? You would have to switch everything since it is a FSI engine. It would be easier just to build your 1.8 into a 2 liter.

it would be a real PITA, probably impossible unless you actually had a B7 harness, gauge clusted and all the other crap. Not to mention all the custom mounts for motor, accessories, and probably custom axles......you get the point.

It would be easier to swap in an S4 biturbo 2.7, a 2.8-3.2 VR6, or even build a 3.0 V6 and turbocharge it. The issue with the FSI isn't getting it in but getting it to run.
