So as the title suggests I need a new engine. I was travelling down the motorway when the engine died on me - timing belt tensioner gave up causing the belt to snap. Ive been quoted between 2 and 4000 to fix depending on what state the head is in so I intend to swap the engine.
Its a 2004 2.0 fsi, non turbo with engine code AXW.
Ive seen a couple on eBay and providing I get one with the same engine code will it be a straight swap?
On a side note, depending on difficulty level.. this has the potential to become a project car! So how difficult would it be to fit a turbo engine? if any would fit?
Thanks in advance
