id like to drop a 5.3 but i think that would be more expensensive lol.

as far as the build code, are you referring tothe vin code? i just want to be real sure before i drop the cash on the motor. i dont see why they would make more than one 4.2 v8 for the same production years, but whos knows, im not a german automotive engineer lol.
im also worred about sensors and whatnot. thanks

Build code = engine code, in this case AXQ is the engine code common to the Touareg (2004-06) & The V8 Phaeton (All years available in this country).

what i worry about is the electronics and the trans as if im not mistaken, the pheaton and treg have a different trans and VW liked wires it seems.
