    Hi my engine went the other day from a turbo failing and bearings going into it so Ive found another engine i'm wanting to purchase and fit.

    Would anybody know if a 2.0 tdi engine from a 2010 touran would be a straight fit into my 2.0 tdi 2007 A3? They both have BKD engines and DSG transmission?

    What might be different/what else is involved other than dropping the engine in?


    Secondly, as a bit of wishful thinking, what would be involved in buying a 170 engine, what would need to be changed?

    Thanks for any help

    If memory serves, the touran is the same chassis as the A3, it's just a "taller" golf.

    I'd imagine it will be a straight swap for the engine tbh, although I would see if somebody can confirm it with part numbers or similar?

    would have thought a BKD is a BKD. Long block swap should be fine just swap the ancillaries over and buy a decent turbo.
