    HELP: replacement engine for 2.0TFSI???

    hi i recently got an audi a3 2.0tfsi DSG engine code BWA with 38,000 miles, the engine has seized and found a replacement engine same code BWA complete with gearbox but its a manual box.
    would it be a straight engine swap if i take the manual box off and put my dsg one back on when i put it in the car or is it not as simple as that cheers

    Uh-oh... why did it seize? Is there a lurking fault we should be aware of?

    I think it is an opportunity for a project btw.

    I'd love to see an A3 with the engine from a Passat R36. Why not give that a go!
