you prob should start your own thread in swaps rather than posting here ... this thread is for links to swaps

I think this pic was hosted on some photo site and then the link died. I'd like to host it on TDIclub so we always have it for those looking for this unique combo. worst case when I get home I'll draw it out based on my car's setup.
Just emailed you a diagram. Not sure it's the one you are looking for

I haven't paid attention lately, but on some older engines the tensioner came with a washer between it and the block. Might worth checking out.

What engine are you dealing with?

Do the timing tools hold the belt in place?

So, is the belt forward on the pulleys by 1/4"?

Have you rotated the engine by hand, at least 2 revolutions?

TDI(s): B7 passat
Default b7 to mk5?

Ive got a wrecked 2015 TDI passat with DSG in the tow yard that insurance has decided not to pay the lot fees.
I also have a 2007 GTI with the BPY FSI motor with a DSG trans. The FSI is a failure prone abortion in my opinion.

What is the reality of this swap? I cant seem to find anything on this, most likely because there arent too many people that have the luxury of getting a car this new to tear into. Ive been told by several people that it is more trouble than it is worth. That just motivates me more. I have zero experience with anything this new. Are the fuse blocks compatible? Woud I be able to just repin the connectors as necessary, or would I have to change over the plugs where necessary? Would the cluster connection be the same? Can I code out the DEF? As always, this is for off road purposes only.

Doing a swap into a Corrado, mk2, b3/B4? If so consider this go pedal mounting bracket from S&P Automotive:


It mounts in less than 10 minutes without pulling the dash. And allows you use mk4 and newer go pedals.

Here it is in Corrado with a Touareg pedal for my 3.6 VR6
