Anyone ever put an AMU (225hp) from an Audi TT into a Beetle? Only thing I could think of that would be a problem is the different intake manifold, with the throttle body on the driver's side.

I've got an AMU in my garage I was going to put into my Corrado. But I may save it for my Turbo S if the engine ever goes kaput.

Is it relatively easy to upgrade the AWP to a comparable horsepower level as the AMU?

A tune and few supporting bolt-ons will make some nice power gains in the AWP. I have Stage 2 on my GTI (which is also AWP), a 3" turbo back, and a Forge 007 DV. Its got quite a bit of pep now. Unitronic rates the tune at 235hp/275tq. I'd probably just do some mods on the AWP vs. swapping in a different engine.
