    Hi everyone,
    just picked up 1999 A3 1.8t quattro.its got 151k miles on it, but no history. Engine seems to be fine, but could be ticking bomb.
    Inspected it a bit better today i can see head has been changed to ADR one, also turbo been replaced with K04 copy and by look of it conversion wasnt done properly as there is small oil leak from end of the engine. As far as ii am aware block is still original.its code AJQ. All of those changes indicate some problems in the past? Probably oil pressure failure?
    i can get Pretty cheap agu engine. Would it fit? I am mostly concerned about engine- gearbox connection?
    Many thanks for your replies

    It would ve very hard to say why its all been changed? Copy turbos arnt very good from what i know. As youve said tho if it seems to drive and boost ok then just carry on.

    My main question is- is agu engine is compatible with 5speed quattro gear box?
    Would it be just straight engine swap? Thanks

    Did you get to the bottom of this Mario? Sounds like the same car I just picked up!
