    Yup I am the idiot that got the flooded A3 8L, 97 hatch Try to unlock the engine but no luck with that. I think it has to do with being full of salt water for two years. Mmm I wonder. hehe any way! I need to find a wrecked car in the us to get an engine and a Tranny. So people what should I look for? Mine is a right hand drive, I was told the engine and tranny are in te same position but I am nt sure. I tought about a A4 1.8T but not sure. Would a V6 be better? I am also looking to make it a simple swap.. So also any VW engine that would be the same? They are cheaper and easier to find. Would that work? Help me out here... I dont have the key of the back door, anybody know how to open it from the inside or something? Haven't sein a pull for it.

    The A4 engine and tranny are different, you dont say what your engine spec is to comparem but some VWs and seats have the same engine/box as the 1.8t
