Engine upgrade advice. 1.6 to 1.8t
I have some spare cash in the new year for an engine change to a 1.8t. Some helpful info from aragorn about the gearboxes being the same has now prompted me to ask a few questions in case others have done it in the past.
Are the centre sections the same? ie would i only have to find a downpipe from the turbo?
Can i just unplug the 1.6 loom and ECU and just swap them over or will i have to wire other stuff in, such as cam sensors and coilpacks? (my 1.6 is a dizzy model)
The other stuff i figure would be ok, if the mounts are different ill just replace them. ill be using the same gearbox so i wont be touching driveshafts.
Finally ive realised theres quite a few 1.8t engines and codes.. which one is the one i should be looking for?
Thanks in advance for any replies.:icon_thumright:
