5.2 V10 Swap

Hello

Does anyone know how hard it would be to swap a 5.2 V10 from a C6 S6 into a V8 Touraeg?

I think it would be relatively easy, the Touareg had bigger engines from factory such as the W12 and the V10 twin turbo, and both the 5.2 V10 and the 4.2 V8 are based on the same design ( the V10 is essencially the V8 with 2 extra cylinders) both are FSI fueled and both are longitudinally mounted engines

Without accounting for the ECU, and wire harness , do you guys think the engine swap itself would be 'fairly plug-n-play' ?

Thanks

No, not at all, there are so many differences and upgrades between the two vehicles that it's not feasible. buy a v10 touareg if you want a v10

Not to mention the price of a wiring harness is ~$10k

You would be into a world of pain you would wish you had never started.

As others have said, if you want a V10, buy a V10.

By the way, there are 2 ECUs for the V10, one master, one slave, and once programmed as such, they stay that way.

And you'd need a new prop shaft too - the V10's is shorter.

But in reality, you would be far, far, FAR better off buying the newer V8 Tdi which I think was/is available in your country.

I think the OP is referring to the 5.2 petrol v10.

Which I think is near impossible.

All vw/audi engines must use 507.00 spec oil except non-DPF R5/V10 engines that must use 505.01/506.01

Regardless, changing the engine to anything else isn't feasible

In that case let's all tell him it really is as simple as he clearly thinks it is and ask to him to post photos of his progress.

Then we can run a sweepstake on when he finally stops updating this thread having finally realised he has bitten off more than he can chew!

Or, on the other hand, congratulate him in about two years time for having achieved his aim!!
