Is it easy?


Replacing an engine isn't like swapping a battery, You need space to work, an engine hoist, tools, and days to work on it. Using any engine from another vehicle requires some research and customization. Are you prepared for that?

Yes I have all the tools and time. I want to take the v6 out of the Passat and put the small 4 cylinder tdi Jetta and put in the Passat I want to know if it worth the time or not
