    Don't forget you'd need to swap pretty much the full wiring loom and all ECU's too.

    Would the VXR turbo and various other parts be able to be used on the NET.

    A cheap high miler vxr and a low miler accident damaged 2.0t... Cheaper then doing it the other way round that most do, only an option at the moment however...
