    As suggested in the other post mate... manifold is different and hotside is integrated... sell it and buy a hybrid...

    Absolutely no point mate, not when you consider the hassle involved.

    Hybrids allow 300+ HP, so would an 8P conversion. Hybrid is a lot less work.

    The TFSI crank is used in 1.8t stroker conversions, needs the oil pump gear modding or replacing to suit the 1.8 06A block... rods and pistons won't be much use IIRC...

    TFSI Block is different to 20v engines IIRC... best bet is to sell it all for a profit and buy bits that fit yours directly... still end up with the same sorta power but less hassle/expense
