    Default Engine swap.

    Hey all,

    My friend has a 2.2 Direct sri pre-facelift. Not sure what year it is.. think it's 2003-04. He has a 2.0t lump no idea what year it came from but it's done about 30k or something, so a few years i'm guessing. He's asked me to ask you guys what differences there are and if a transplant is possible.
    Obviously different throttle body, gearbox, manifolds, exhaust, ECU..
    Would it take a transplant? What are the general thoughts on whats required?

    Cheers

    maybe aftermarket management would be the easiest way as im sure its a big job but wait for other peoipolke as the engine is basically the same just made better

    Would have thought for the time and money taken to do it he might as well sell his car and the lump and buy a 2.0T, taking into account the cost of the conversion and hassle with insurance company / raised premiums. Just my 2p though.
