My mom totaled her jetta GLI and I am going to take her motor and wiring in my scirocco I just need to know what I need to make it possible. You help is dearly appriciated
get the wiring diagrams for BOTH cars...that's a good start.
What is the engine code number?
Then figure out the fuel injection
Then figure out mounting
Then figure out cooling.
Fgure out the inter-cooler ducting
Then figure out exhaust.
Then figure out the suspension
Then the brakes for twice the horsepower
Do you have the skills for this big job?
A 1.8 swap is not especially difficult but there are pit-falls for the noobie. A 1.8 TURBO is a very big job

I cannot teach you how to be a Zen mechanic, grasshopper.
The VW Scirocco, the worlds fastest ECONOMY car.
NLS makes mounts, Techtonics makes a swap downpipe. Those alone will help out plenty. The rest is pretty much on you. The gli is drive by wire so you'll have to fab the pedal into your car, you'll need to make a choice on what trans to use too. I'm sure the immobilizer will have to dealt with as well. Search plenty before you start into the swap.
