View Full Version : 2001 1.8t engine block compatibility

09-04-2016, 04:03 PM
I have a 2001 avant with a blown hg and I would like to build an engine and swap it in instead of pulling the current one and going through it. What engine blocks will swap in? Will some of the bug engines fit? I am mostly interested in the short block as I have a head for it.

I put an AWP in my car from an 04 GLI. My understanding is any manual longitude 06A and any transverse 06A will work. Auto or standard. Mine was auto motor and it had the provision for the pilot bearing in the crank.
