I would check over at VWVORTEX.com the site is deicated to everything VW Im shure someone over ther has a good answer for you. Good luck.

Thank you I will try that website.


It depends on which 05 you have. If it is the older body style it should. If it is the newer body style the 2.0 is a diesel unless it is the GLI. Remember there is a whole lot more to changing the engine size in a VW, The ECM will have a fit with that change. The wiring is different also.
