    Transverse blocks are different

    You need a motor from a longitudinal car, IE A4, A6 or Passat.

    Where are you bigdave? There have been a few Audi's and Passats appearing in Perth scrap yard. They might hold one for you before they drain the fluids

    They usually appear on ebay fairly regularly and the yards will usually pallet ship it for you.

    The scrappys round here (fife) all have quite a few 1.8T's in passats and A4's, they're pretty common engines!

    I'm in Ayrshire, my TQS has an AJL engine in it, you can have the rest of the car to.

    Seriously though, I am thinking of selling it, might break it if that doesn't happen.
