I want to pickup another AWM 1.8t to build on the side.. mine is a 2001 audi a4 1.8t awm 5spd.. would an AWM out of a 1.8t from a 2003 VW Passat 5spd be the same thing and i'd be able to bolt right up and plug everything in or is there slight differences?

some pcv stuff is different, more along the lines of AMB b6 style stuff but the block/head/crank is all the same and will work, I assume you'll be pulling some stuff off your old motor when you swap it in so you just have to take the specific stuff thats different off your old motor or use the 2003 passat style stuff.

I want to build a 2.0 stroker on the side and then just swap it out for my stock 1.8..

Will I still be able to run my Stage1 tune with a stroker 2.0 or would I need to purchase another tune or bring it for dyno tuning?
