Default Can I replace a 2.8tdi engine with a 2.5tdi ?

Hi

I'm sorry if this is in the wrong place but I'm new and in a bit of a mess !

I have an 05 VW LT35 with a 2.8 tdi engine which is broken and unrepairable.

I've tried to source a second hand replacement with no luck but I have been offered a 2.5 tdi engine at a reasonable price

So my question is can I put a 2.5 engine into a 2.8 van ????

Engine code on my 2.8 engine starts AUH and the 2.5 engine starts AVR

Please can someone advise as I'm having sleepless nights trying to sort this mess out

Many Thanks

It's not a direct swap there are many differences as the 2.8 is a mercedes derived engine and the 2.5 is a VW 5 cylinder.

You'll have to change many parts including the accessories, bracketry, gearbox...

Where are you located? I may be able to have a 2.8 sent to you.
