      ...This is a much, much harder swap than you'd think. If you have an AEG, just boost it with a C2 or kinetics kit.

      Depends whether you are boosted or NA.
      Tradition is the art of making the same mistake repeatedly, on purpose.

      i ran a BT 1.8t tune on my 8vT just fine. You dont need to swap heads to run the tune. just swap in the harness and rewire the coil pack drivers. Takes about an hour.

      Yeah i have talked to him about this process... get yourself a 1.8t ecu and engine side harness, then grab a haines manual and rewire it to power the single coilpack that a 2.0 has instead of the 4 that the 1.8t has. Also need to incoporate a MAP sensor, but then you can run any 1.8t tune on your 2.0t

      yup.. cam position plug and the 4 coil drivers.

      1.8t has 4 ind. coil packs
      2001+ 2.0 has 4 ind. coils in ONE PACK. so works the same way

      .... you're missing it.... too much to explain at this point, but no, you're looking at it wrong.

      a chip that gives you 50hp on a turbo engine. A stock 1.8T ecu on a stock 2.0L car does not a 180hp make.

      Nor does a 1.8T chip give a 2.0L NA 50 more hp.... if that's what you were getting at.

      Not to sound rude but it sounds like just doing a 1.8t swap will be the easiest and give you what your looking for

      also i just read the rest of this thread....you completely got confused.

      I'm saying run a 1.8t ecu to run a 8vT setup. You're saying run a 1.8t ecu to make turbo power

      Unless you are trying to make huge power, and want to swap harness's and ecu's... i would just run a 2.0 turbo tune. You will be able to make just below 300hp on one of these tunes with a set of 440cc injectors. I'll pm you more info if you need it

      Nice save me a lot of money. Basically a 2.0L 8V is a 1.8T without a turbo and 20V head right. The question is will it be able to keep up with a 1.8T? If I were to get something like a unitronic BT 600cc flash will it still be able to withstand all that power? Or will u just have to swap the whole thing into a 1.8T.

      on a 1.8t you need rods for over 300wtq...

      on a 2.0_8v you need rods AND pistons...

      (1.8t and 2.0 rods for AZG/AVH/BEV/AWW/AWP are the the same 19mm wrist pins w/tapered small end)
      (1.8t and 2.0 rods for AEB/AEG are the same 20mm wrist pins)
