Felix the MK6DSGTSIGTI

Post by MT-Getto »

I'm sure someone saw this on craigslist. Scooped it up on the cheap with a timingchain failure. Im working on finding a longblock. With 180k on the car, I'm just going drop a lower mile motor in.

Ended up winning an eBay auction for a motor with just under 100k.

:paranoid: Fingers crossed.........

Sweet. Check the balance shafts on the engine that’s in it. I pick up a Passat with the TSI that supposedly had a seized engine. Only issue was seized balance shafts. I think the parts were only $300 or $400 and a simple fix.

That's a good one, and for the mileage looks pretty clean!

Overdue for an update here. Been a busy summer.

Im going to let the photos do most of the talking but in a nutshell:

Ebay motor from an EOS with 90k arrived in good condion. Changed out rear main before install. Motor bolted in fine. Took a break to put a heater core in the sportwagen. First start attempt yielded about a gillion codes and no start. Turns out EOSs have a siemens ECU instead of bosch. Had to re-pin the harness by tracing and comparing wires on the original harness. There were a few that needed soldering because of guage changes.

After running the car for a while, it got new plugs, new battery, upgraded coils, PCV, new replica Audi wheels, timing chains, intake carbon cleaning and APR software. I had European Performance in Billings do the cleaning, chains and APR (good dudes).

Frisky Felix is a happy critter :beer: :cool: Cheers!!

Awesome Trev!!!

Great update and glad you got the EOS issue sorted. Glad to see some posts here, I'm going to start posting my more in depth updates here like I used to, so Zuck doesn't steal my data :laughing:

Ian and Quinn are awesome, and I'm very glad to gear they did some work for you. Great things happen at European Performance :thumbsup:
