The only reason folks generally swap engines is to gain a capability not already in the vehicle. In your case, the 2.0 engine IS the least expensive option...if your current engine needs replacement, the least expensive choice is another 2.0.

What Scott said is spot on. Now if you are looking for performance the 1.8T (engine code AWP) might be up your alley. Engines can be found for a grand in good condition. In all honesty though if you are really into swapping from a 1.8T find a wrecked GTI, because the swap will involve a lot more then just the engine Engine, ECU, Cluster, Transmission, ETC. If your serious check out VWvortex for technical details. http://forums.vwvortex.com/forumdisplay.php?27-1-8T-Engine-Forum Good luck!
