Remove old engine

Fit brakets to new engine (where applicable)

fit Gearbox and new clutch kits etc (including bracket) to engine

Plumb in the wiring on the engine

plumb in the wiring to the fuse board to ECU

id get rid of ABF mate.. i just don't find them quick at all, infac ti found little difference between the 16v i had and he 8v engine that used to be in mine

but its gonna cost you a fair amount to do a 1.8T conversion (properly)

worth it tho :evil:

TBH you don't need as much power as the S3 lump

AGU or AUM is fine

Or the Auq with its 180 bhp, (same engine as above basically but with a different standard map - once mapped they are all about the same)

AGU only has K03 so upgrade that tp the K03s and remap it and you will have over 200bhp and believe me it will fly and you will smile all day

So yea any of the above codes are good and readily available and don't brake the ££££££ like the S3 lumps do..

Its not about the BHP, its all about the torque

Until you mashup your clutch like i did :/

What torque can the VR6 clutch handle ?
