    Audi a4 2.5 engine change to 3.0 tdi

    Hi guys. Was thinking about buying a 3.0 tdi engine from a local car breaker. he said its out of a 06 a4. I was wondering has anyone ever tried this and would the wiring loom an all be the same??

    Adams might be able to help. But the 2.5 and the 3.0 is a very different engine.
    Atlas Grey A4 2.5 TDI Quattro Sport.
    Mods so far: Cruise control, DIS, Heated Mirrors, Tuning box, Xenonx, Centre Arm Rest, MFSW, RNS-E, SDS and Aero Wipers.
    To do: None yet.
    Next: Auto dip rearview mirror and Folding Mirrors.

    Forget about it, nearly everything is different: box, engine, ECU, ABS pump, engine wiring loom, dashboard wiring loom, etc... You better off spending the 2-3 grand towards the car with the engine you want in it or spend the money upgrading the car you have...
    3k spent into a 2,5 tdi will go beyond what a 3.0Tdi will do with just a remap ! Done a DPF delete on a 2007 a5 2.7Tdi this weekend and working on the new engines is much more involved compared to the old v6 tdi lump !

    Sorry, must have got un-noticed, some weeks i have too many emails so cannot answer all ! Anyway, what's your budget ? You can get 350 Bhp out of the good old AKE engine with a few bolt on mods ! I can get you big nozzles, a hybrid turbo, a 4 Bar map sensor, a custom map and a clutch whatever your power...just let me know what you're after... Chris- 07789912128

    Best to look at the camshafts to see if they are in good nick and not worn. I can get you a turbo fitted with a 56mm or 60mm compressor wheel which will supply plenty air for 250-270 Bhp, a set of nozzles (choice of 40%, 66%, 80% larger nozzles), a 4 Bar remap + a new tune will produce so much torque that it will slip the clutch. With a smooth tune and above ingredients it will do some serious Bhp !
    If you're near North London one day, drop me a line and i will take you for a spin in my 2 tonne allroad- not exactly the lightest car for a performance upgrade but i like to go against the grain sometimes !
