7 posts in this topic

Hey all Im new you the site. But I've got a major question to ask and I'm hoping someone can tell me if I can swap my 06 2.0t fsi motor to a 09 2.0tsi ? I'm about to try and would love to find out if its even possible first. Any insite would be greatly appreciated.

You can pretty much (assuming it will fit) swap any engine for any other, the issue is how much work/adaptation will be required.

ECU will be different but if it has the same socket & input pin-out it could be easy, if not it could be hard.

The same could be true of ANY plug/socket/nut/bolt anywhere in the engine bay & the most (apparently) simple job can easily grow arms, wings, legs horns & turn into a nightmare.

This would beg me the question why?

If you just want an update it would be MASSIVELY simpler, quicker & cheaper to change the car.

At least doing it that way you don't then have the issue of insurance, because if you don't tell them, they will disown you when you need them the most and potentially cost you your sanity, wallet and even freedom massively.

Well the reason I'm doing the swap is because back in February I blew my transmission so I put it in the shop and while removing the trany they broke my engine block because they missed a couple bolts and tryed forcing it. And it's financed so I picked up a wrecked 09 with 24,000 original miles and that's where I am

ECU,  immobilisers and keys - getting them all to speak to each other tends to the difficult part.

Wouldn't you be better off speaking to them as they broke it due to incompetence?
