    My Audi Cabriolet currently has a 2.0 8v engine and I am looking to replace this with a 2.3 10v engine that I have recently purchased. I was wondering if anyone has done this (or similar) conversion and if so, is there anything major that I should be aware of...?

    I have new ECU, full wiring loom, new radiator and pipes. I was going to leave the 5 speed box in and was wondering if this was likely to cause any problems..?

    Thanks in advance...:thumbsup:

    I have converted a number of B2, B3 and B4 cars without any issues.

    Worth noting though, your Cabriolets a very well-built, heavy car.

    You won't see an appreciable increase in performance, despite the fact you're going from 115 - 133PS.

    I'd have dug deeper, and either gone for a 2,3 20V.

    Or even better, a 3,6 / 4,2L V8 (250 / 280PS).

    Do you still have the 2.3 engine?
    I will probably be needing one in the near future.
    Where did you buy it?
    Thanks,
