The motor in my daughters 03 vert broke the timming tensioner and all the valves got bent. I'm consittering just replacing the motor as it has 165k on it. The car has a BDC motor which is hard to find and supposedly not interchangeable with other motor codes. Does anyone know what the differences between these motors are. I found a LKQ motor which appears to be same, with the same intake assembly and exhaust manifold. Are the differences between these motors mainly found in the parts that bolt to the longblock, like the intake and fuel injection system.

Any help would be appreciated. Been a mechanic for years. But I'm new to VWs.

Nobody knows anything about this. Just looking at the number of seemingly identical yet different engines VW used. I would think there would be a lot of info out there about the differences between them.

I'd ask in the 2.0L technical section at vwvortex. I bet you'll get more info there.
