Need to swap the Engine and Gearbox, Turbo, Manifold, Turbo pipe to exhaust, Sump, Oil Pickup, water pipes, a few other bits and some drilling and tapping etc.....not so straight forward :(
Doing one at the moment but from a 1X engine to the AAZ, far easier from an ABL to the AAZ

turbo and manifold turbo pipe to exhaust "three bolts" and egr pipe flaffing

sump and oil pick up yes thats about an hour

fly wheel and clutch an hour

change plastic pipe on right side of head and front of head change thermostat housing arrangment

swap p0wer streering pump

maybe change fuel pump depending on which aaz pump you get

pilot holes for mount are there so enlarge and tap

i would say similar to tdi conversion (i aint done one yet)



so as i said about a day but it is quite easy

and whats left of the golf will raise a few dollors
