      You need to use the ECU and Knock box out of the Passat. As well as the fuel dist and lines. the 2.0 16v fuel injectors are diffrent from the 8v as well as the timing. It will run on the 8v stuff but not well. to get the most out of the swap change it all..

      Just need the knock box and TB switches and the fuel lines w/ injectors. We had a donor 16V scirocco. The motor did very well on the CIS. We were not worried about cold starts, we just wanted consistant fueling, and mounted the WUR where the battery would've been along with a coolant catch tank we had mounted there.

      Tradition is the art of making the same mistake repeatedly, on purpose.
