engine is a stock 2.7t about 90k miles on it now, it will be running testpipe downpipes, 3 inch exhaust, tune, water/meth, and a FMIC for now. plan is to upgrade it to a single turbo setup next winter

i bought it with 85k on it did a full service and timing belt on it had it in a FWD passat but it was way too much of a handfull thats why i bought the 4-motion i want to get the power to the ground.

if this w8 engine wasnt destroyed i proabaly would have just swapped in the 6 speed and drove the car till the engine went, kinda felt a little bad pulling the heart out of the w8 but its hard to justify the cost of another engine when i had all the parts already for the 2.7t swap all i cost me was a different engine harness and ECU flash since this is a 2004 and my old setup was a 2000.

This is what I found, assuming it is correct (from an unverified source).

I could use the W8 plastic shroud that goes under the front of the car, if its for-sale.

subscribed to your thread! ..... great conversion project.

I replaced a dead W8 ( and torque converter)two years ago    W8 engine swap, etc, and that was enough challenge for me - had thought of swapping to a 2.7, or even a 3.6, but that left far too many unknowns.
Which engine harness did you use, assuming that it was not the original with a 2000 2.7TT? - a 2004 2.7 Audi harness? Also, when it fires up, I'll be interested in your comments of how the dash instruments respond, and if the CCM communicates with the new wiring/ECU.

Well done ...

I'm using a 2004 allraod 2.7t ECU and engine harness, im interested to see what happens as well when its fired. im hoping most things will work correctly on the cluster since the W8 uses an ME7.1.1 ecu and the 2004 2.7t uses ME7.1.1 as well so communitation wise they are the same its the CANBUS interactions that im no 100% sure on.

I have been going over wiring diagrams, ECU pinouts, CANBUS control, for months prior to starting this project. when I got the car it sat for about 6 months while I was searching and closing on a new house so I had lots of time to try and figure it all out.

Central convenience module, the brains of everything in the car beside the engine control.

i actually have a couple bentely manuals, been pouring over them for sometime making notes and copies of pages for all the wiring that i have cross referenced incase i ever need to trouble shoot the engine swap.
