hi everyone.after finding the misterious missfire problem in my car (turned out to be a head gasket) i decided to go for a replecement engine.straight on e bay and won the auction and got it delivered to my door.everything is fine untill i found that i havent notice the code and the engine i bought turned out to be the one with coilpack wheres mine is with individual coils.oh dear!silly me! so what do i do now?as far as i can see its almost the same eccept for it has a missing cam sensor and a selenoid for the exhaust cam.are they interchangeable without the head or if i bought-modified the loom and a ecu from aue coded engine would be easier? or can i just put the engine in with the current ecu-loom set up and leave the sensor wires blank and try.finally if i bought an ecu,coil pack and the loom woul i need to re program the key or will it work since my car has its own transponder and key?
it is definetly 24v engine i took the cover off and had a look.mines code is ayl.and the one i purchased is aue (it is from a bora-jetta 4 motion) i think thats the early version of the gti v6 too.only made around 2000-2001 for a short time.i think.wish i searched that before i buy the thing
hey.well i didnt get much repply for my question but for people whos wondering the answer is yes.it will work.its been installed and passed all emission tests and everything ok.it doesnt feel like 204 bhp at the moment but im guessing its still learning values and cars been sitting for 6 months.next week friday its setting off for a 1k mile round trip so will let know if it gets worse or better.
