    im guessing you mean 1.9 cdti out of the mk5 if so its not a straight swap as it uses canbus and the mk4 doesnt have canbus

    not sure if your going to need the ecu etc for the 2.0 dti

    Take the head off your engine, might not be as expensive as you think. My cam belt broke on the laguna, only cost about £75 for valves, belt and headset.
