Now that was a solid answer. Thank youIf you're going to do a full system swap from the donor, I could see it working. The issue is when you try to mismatch pieces with this ECU. Anything outside the Component Protection Halo I would assume would be safe, but I can't speak from experience. I just know if you start trying to plug in things that fall under the CP - IE gauges/cluster, ignition, etc. you'll MAY have issues defeating the immobilizer as it requires Fazit/ODIS which talks to the VW servers back in Germany to re register the Part SNs. Unless you are talking MK6, all this information is what i've read up on for the MK7/MQB platform as I'm looking to do quite a few retrofits that require swaping things like the CAN gateway, BCM, etc.
I don't have an answer for you at this time. Figuring this out step by step.Assuming you took all electronics and sensors with you, how would you mount it up in the miata? Surely you can't use the vw transmissions and the engine was designed to fit transversely, so what transmission and mating would you have to do to get it fitted?
Say what? Sounds like either a 14 year old or a troll.Theoretically, I can get a salvage Golf R / TTs / S3, swap it and then I wouldn't have any problems with the VIN. I don't know but maybe I'm on a different page then everyone else...
I love the ECU. That with the overbuilt engine and big ass turbo, it's perfect. It sounds like many of you work on your own cars but I personally pay for the important work and only do little things myself.
I take great care of my Golf R and haven't had any problems a simple fix won't solve. And most problems are well known enough that I'm preemptive with a lot of the maintenance I do.
And I live around Philadelphia where there are plenty of VW experts / mechanics / tuners.
