    No it won't work. Take a look on ebay for twin turbo ECUs.

    It will plug in and it will probably start but you do NOT want to do that. It will not run right and will most likely screw something up. Like Blackstealth said find one on ebay or find one from a member. They go for about 250-300.

    BTW I'f you can borrow one from a friend you might want to try it out before buying the car unless you are getting a killer deal.

    Should be $250 to rebuild. $400 is high.

    This has been discussed so many times. Just buy a TT ECU for it. They are going for fairly cheap now.

    If cash is so tight that you can't afford an ECU for the car, you might want to remember the money involved in dealing with the entire car.

    Vacuum reduction, Powdercoated misc, cruise relocate, Evo9 BOV, Custom catch cans, Russell fuel filter, SS braided fuel lines, High flow fuel loop, Autogage fuel gauge, Catless DP, DNP Y-pipe, Fuel pump hotwire.

    I would like to know where these cheap 1st gen ECUs are everyone keeps talking about. Decided to put a 94 TT ECU in my 91 VR4. Looks like very few changes are needed to make it work.

    thanks for the replies guys pretty much what i thought the case would be on it ... and money is a little tight right now but its anot always tight lol ... but i get hat your saying that if 400 bucks is gonna make or break me that i might not wanna take on owning it cause of cost of ownership on a tt but like i said the moneys not always this way for me, its just that the deal has come around at a time when it is tight and 400 is the differnce between enough gad to get it home or not... but dayumm it looks sweet as hell tho black turboed n beautiful !!
    but anyways thanks a again for the replies guys
