    Get the 2.7 Bi-turbo engine from the old S4!

    Seriously though, find one that's been in a rear end collision and just do an engine transplant. The 190's are a bit rarer though, so you might have a job finding one.

    Why did you delete the old thread?

    So its the Bex Engine you looking for then! Prob the best bet.
    If your lucky you will find one within days but because your looking for the same engine you might need to prepare for the waiting game. Took me 3 weeks till I managed to find a decent replacement.

    Have a look at this....

    You need the Block aswell by sounds of it but it states in his ad that he is breaking the entire engine so it'll be worth giving him a call on the Number stated.
    You never know mate, might sort you out a good price.

    re: the TT engine swap. This is what I was looking into when mine went but was then advised by my mechanic to keep it simple and go for the same code engine I originally had in mine (AVJ) but after I had bought the engine, had it fitted etc I spoke to another mechanic and he said he could have done the TT engine implant piss easy!! Sods law considering the 1600 I paid for the Enigne and Turbo I could have saved myself 600 if I had gone with the TT swap.

    hey j7uss no luck with the guy that was breaking the engine... he sold the block within 10 minutes of posting it up! this engine seems to be becoming the bain of my life! found a local place who have the bex engine but want 2300 supply an fitted its covered 34k.

    a friend of a friend just wrote off his 58 TT an has a 2.0 tfsi engine that he said i cud have for 1700... with the loom an the ecu... so now... how easy is it to fit? is it even possible?
