      Has anyone tried using a 1.8 head from an Audi? Or using the whole engine? I thought the Audi 1.8s had more power and better flowing heads and vws were slightly down tuned?

      Make sure when you turn the key on, The lights in the gauge cluster light up. The major one is the Check Engine Light. Some people will pull the bulb to cover up any problems.
