Thanks fellas. Mother in Law didn't bale until 3pm, arghhh! So I was stuck with small talk all day. I did get the new motor in the garage and pulled the inspection cover off where the tensioner is shown. Picture below. Can anyone verify that this is the updated tensioner? It looks WAY different than the outgoing motor's, so I'm happy there. I can't for the life of me get the part number to show. The updated tensioner is part number 06K 109 467 K MR7. I only need the last digit to show and I can verify it ends in 'K'. I can see the 'MR7', but they ALL end in that number. I'm feeling decent about this tensioner. May rent a borescope from Autozone to totally confirm, I think they loan them?



Turbo is out and the picture is below. I watched the Humble Mechanic video about the 2.0 turbo failures, and this turbo doesn't show any symptoms. The waste gate was pretty tight and the scroll looked pretty good. My glove grazed it, so it looks nicked up. That is just carbon that was wiped off. Anyone have insight on what else to check or should I just run this turbo?

Props on the engine swapping! Check the turbo for shaft play while it's out. Great time to go K04

I cant say which Tensioner you actually have though. There has been 4 revisions of the same part thus far. So, you may have a revised part, but THE MOST REVISED. Who knows? Unless you can see a part number.

That's what I'm afraid of! I can't see the whole number, and the bottom cover only comes off with some tugging and bending, which means I'd need a new one at $106....
So, what would you do? We know it's revised, probably second generation given the early model year production date of my engine parts, showing September-October, 2012. Is it revised enough?

I've looked and can't find any under $1500... I agree with you, just not sure what the install takes? I know there's a software update that gets done. Is that it, the turbo and a chip? Sounds easy. Any drawbacks to the K04? Check engine lights? I really don't want to screw up emissions inspections.

Quiet day today, just ironing out some things to keep rolling. Separated the transmission and swapped the flywheel on. I'm trying to decide what to do about the turbo....

You're probably good with the new style tensioner, even with the older revision. You really dont hear of them failing ever really. But it would be way easier to change it while you have the engine out if you want the peace of mind.

I agree on the 'peace of mind' angle, but the one revision is great for now and I'm ready to be done with this project! It's going too slow lately, too many holdups.

Another slow day today. Went into it with, as always, the greatest intentions. Broke an exhaust stud reinstalling the exhaust manifold. Man that sucked. It broke flush, minus two threads, so it was sunk into the head. I tried drilling and then the bit got stuck in there too. That was enough, brought the motor to a shop for removal. Hoping to have it back mid-day tomorrow to continue. It's reinstall everything time, coming soon!

Was it the drivers side stud that broke? On my K04 swap I found that stud broke. Tow to shop and $400 later it was out. Your tensioner looks just like the one I ordered and installed last month from DAP. I have a 2010 and the old tensioner looked like it was in good shape but for piece of mind I replaced it.

Yes, it was the driver's side. Top left looking at the manifold. Sheared off inside. I found a local engine machine shop that took it in and said no problem. Good, cause I was out of options! $400, hopefully not!
The tensioner that failed on my 2012 was the early style, probably the same as your 2010. Good move changing yours. I'm gonna let mine ride.

I agree with letting it ride. Looks exactly like the new one I got. My stud was broke just inside head also. Extractor broke while I tried to get it out. I think it took the shop 4 or 5 hours to get stud out and new one in. Couldn't complain about price as the shop let me clean up block, put the new turbo on and all the brackets and heat shield and the turbo outlet pipe while the car was still on the lift. So easy if you have a lift. Needless to say I don't .
