David’s Volkswagen Golf MK5 GTI Engine upgrade to Audi TTS TFSI

David's Volkswagen Golf MK5 GTI Engine upgrade to Audi TTS TFSI

What a dream build. David’s Volkswagen Golf MK5 GTI Engine upgrade to Audi TTS TFSI

So where do we start, browsing for parts near midnight, David messaged us as he was after an Oil Filter, supplied us all the info and we had him the link back within the hour, fast as that, posted out next day. But that’s not where it ends..

It was all in David’s Message. Glaring at us.

My car is a 2005 golf GTi Mk5.
My engine is a 2009 Audi TTS TFSI EA113
(engine code is CDL)

Just staring us right there amongst the friendly polite request for help, politeness gets us, but a mention of the car, the build, often grabs our attention just more than a ‘will it fit’ with no model info, no please or thanks…  amongst that we saw a dream build!

WOW! We read and see and document many dream builds, all special. This one is another very special build! An oil filter is a critical last part, we’re proud to help at any stage of the build.

Imagine a Audi TTS TFSI engine in your Golf.

Well we knew you’d love to imagine and read about this, so we asked David to tell us more and show us and here we are.

David says “The first picture being when I got the car 3 years ago and the last one was a couple of weeks ago at Donington Park. I have completely striped the car out and refreshed everything. New interior (newer), had respray, engine swap due to blown engine (originally AXX engine), suspension, hubs, brakes, everything. Just put on S3 brakes and control arms this weekend. More to come.
Atm it’s just over 360bhp 354ft”

More to come…. Well if that’s not insight into David’s build, there’s more to come later, we just can’t wait to see a follow up one day and proud to have helped even if only for an oil filter. What a brilliant build, a massive credit to David and the envy of many with that engine swap. Envy but so much inspiration, with hard work that is what you can achieve!  We’re here to help next time David needs anything.
