Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The waste gate housing has cracked,on my 2004 Audi A4 1.8. I have been told to swap it
out with a 2.0 to increase the cooling capacity and over all Proformance and reliability.
What are your thoughts

1 Answer


This all depends on what the cars year is your taking the 2.0 engine out of. You can't put in an engine from anything more then a year or 2 older or newer in. I think the only compatible modals wit ha 2004 is 2002 - 2004 if i'm correct. If you put anouther engine in be sure to put something in the same year or as closest the same engine as possible.
