Good day,

I have an Audi A3 1.6 2005 plate and have been thinking of engine swapping a 2.0 TFSI into it, to not only make the car faster but also Stage 1 and possibly Stage 2 it afterwards.

Price of engine swapping a 2.0tfsi would be £1,700, by a Auto Engines UK, based by Rainham.

I’m just not sure wether to go down this root, or to just sell this A3 and buy a same shape A3 as I have but 2.0 TFSI obviously?



There are advantages & disadvantages for going either way, so if you could give me your advice and what you would rather do, will help me out a lot.

Thank you.

Wow thank you so much for this..

I’m not connected with them at all, I saw an ad on eBay they advertised, £1,700 for a full engine swap and 6 month warranty..

Just buy a 2.0 A3. There’s more than just the engine that are different so I’d sell the car and buy a 2.0.

Def get the 2.0 car rather than swapping engines.
As mentioned theres other things to consider other than just the engine.

Also if going stage 2 or beyond, consider getting a quattro.
Mate of mine k04 swapped a 2.0 tt, running around 350bhp. His biggest regret is not using a quattro base

No you won’t. You’ll get the same power. Just be able to put it down better.

don’t even consider the swap. By the time you’ve done it it’ll cost more than selling your car and buying one.
