Tiguan motor swap

Asked by May 20, 2017 at 05:13 PM about the 2010 Volkswagen Tiguan SE w/ Leather

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My boyfriend bought a 2010 VW Tiguan to
fix up, and it needs a new motor, so he's
looking into buy another motor to swap,
but a 2015 motor with the same codes on
it, but the site he's using says that the
motor is for Tiguan between 2012-2017.
What's the difference if the codes are
exactly the same

I doubt the 2010 ECU will work with the 2015 motor. Trying to swap years of engines will give you nothing but headache$$.
