Oh nice, you shouldn't have any trouble getting it done but I do understand the VW technician training doesn't teach you anything about cross compatibility or putting parts where they were never put from the factory.
There's lots of discussion on this subject in the technical forum, you should have a look. I've posted some photos of the extent of the wiring from the last conversion I carried out.

Hi, I'm new on this thread and also about to do my first mk5 gti 2.0tfsi swap into a 57 caddy. I was hoping to just use everything out of the golf including all wiring and modules as I have a full working doner car.
My question is. Is that possible and if not why not? :)
thanks any help is really appreciated!
