Engine swap

Asked by Caytee Nov 29, 2018 at 12:59 AM about the 2000 Volkswagen Jetta

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have 2 2000 vw jettas. Can you put swap
2.0 engine  to replace a 1.8t blown.

1 Answer


My concern would be ECU incompatibility between engines because of the turbo. Even if it would work, you will lose 70 horsepower going non-turbo. Call the salvage yard and do a swap with them.
