Hi guys, I've been searching for hours and can't find a concrete answer to my question. I have a 1994 Audi 90CS which originally had a seized 2.8 AAH engine. The engine was removed years ago and junked, so I have no parts from it. I want to know if I can buy a 2.8 AFC engine from the more commonly found A4s. I see many mentions of swapping heads from my searching but no mention of complete motor swap interchangeability.

Is there someone who has done this and can confirm what the outcome is before I invest in an AFC engine? As I understand it the AFC engines employ many improvements over the original AAH design, however I want to know if I will run into any issues with sensors and connectors, especially considering I do not have the original engine to pick parts from.

Any help or advice is much much appreciated. Thanks

Randy

Nobody? To elaborate, the AAH engine is the 2.8L V6 in the Audi 90's. The AFC is the 2.8LV6 in the Audi A4's. As I understand it they are extremely similar, some would even argue the AFC is just an AAH with internal improvements. However I cannot get die-hard confirmation that one will work directly in place of the other.
