    TBH mate, this has been asked more times than I can remember... unless you plan to go big turbo and all out you r are better off just selling what you have and buying one that VAG made...

    There is a lot of work involved... not just an engine swap...

    Biggest issue is the expense... I am a fine one to talk about wasting money but I at least started with an S3 and made it powerful enough for the outlay to be (kinda) worthwhile....

    Unless there is a compelling reason to do so you are simply better off starting with a 1.8t and go from there... you will get much more out of it that way...

    Swap the engine. The cost in converting a n/a to a f/i would be too expensive
