1.8T head differences
« on: February 20, 2018, 12:24:32 pm »
Hi all

Currently doing a bit of a rebuild on the top end of my 01 gti it had what we thought was a blown head gasket but as it turns out the water galleries are corroded and one was in the fire ring section of the head gasket causing it to leak under boost. Now I haven't been able to find a AUM head to replace it with and repairing the head could be costly as there is corrosion in other galleries, Now ive managed to find someone with a AUQ head will this swap over there is lots on the internet as they are both the VVTI engines ect they should swap over. I just want someone with some more knowledge than myself on this to tell me yay or nae whether this will work.

AUQ is the Audi A3/TT version of the AUM from memory. It should work fine.
