    1.8 to 1.8 agu engine swap

    hi guys im looking into doing an engine conversion on my standard 1.8 non turbo a3 and found someone breaking a mk4 golf with agu engine in it.

    just wondering what i would need for this conversion. obviously need engine, exhaust, turbo, gearbox, manifolds, driveshafts, ecu, clocks, keys.

    what else would i need

    would i need subframe

    anything else i have missed

    What year is your A3 as this will make a difference too... don't see too many normally aspirated 20v's on here so not sure if you will have drive by wire or cable throttle as std...

    You will also be looking at wiring loom as there will be differences I would imagine...
