    Hi guys after some advice I've just recently acquired a mk3 Ibiza 6k2 tdi with the asv engine in it I'm not sure if the model of car is available in the us but.

    I'm basically going to buy a donation car so that I have everything there that I might need.

    Has anyone ever carried out this kind of an engine transplant on bora golf etc and if so what did you need or anything needing fabricated to make it work etc.

    I know ECU and loom are different that side of it is no problem.

    Yeah it catastrophically failed on the way home from purchase snapped number 2 o 3 rod.

    So I'm taking this opportunity to swap to pd and go for 6 speed transmission also.
