View Full Version : Engine Swap

03-21-2012, 09:54 AM
I am looking to replace the motor in my 1998 A4 due to a damaged rod and crank. I found a newer 1.8t but it has an engine code of AWD. Will this motor drop right in or will I need to tweek the harness.

I do believe that is an 06a block out of a transverse vw. In short, you can make it work but it's far from bolt up. Look for another aeb motor

I would prefer an AEB but i cant find one in my area that isnt over a grand. how hard would it be to convert it to work in the audi?

its not that is from a vw that makes it difficult. its a completely different block and engine management system. first off why not fix the motor you have? a crank and rod can be found on vortex easily. and if the block is bad try car-part.com
