Hello, this is a common Fault with the bora/ Passat/ Golf. It generally tends to happen once your car has done 70K plus.
It's more of a electronic fault than an actual physical fault with the turbo.
What happens is when you are accelerating/ or applying an additional load to the engine, like going up a hill for example,the the turbo boost sensor tells the engine management system that it's over boosting (supplying the engine with too much boost pressure or air) the engine then goes into self preservation mode and will not allow the turbo to boost anymore and therefore does not allow your car to accelerate any more than it had been doing prior to the issue. A road side fix for this is to switch your engine off for a minute let the sensors re-set themselves and he presto the problem goes away.
You can be one of the lucky ones that this only happens to a few times, so some other people seem to have a re-occouring problem with.
It happen me in my 2001 Bora on the way back to the UK from a holiday in Germany, not very plesent when your in the overtaking lane doing 100mph+ on the Autobahn ;-).
After switching the engine on and off numerous time through Germant and France i finally got back to the UK, and brought it to my local Garage, who hooked it up to a Diagnostic machine, cleared the engine faults and i've not had a re-occurance since.........
Hope this helps

Depending on the year of the car.....Usually the diagnostic plug is
fitted in the centre consol.. A small plastic strip must be
removed.....in front of the gear shift...below the radio.
Sorry I can not help with tranmission

SOURCE: VW Bora: Can't open bonnet
first of all not an easy job,you need to get the front grill off and look upwards for a cover that will be covering up the bonnet catch,basicly bend or pull this off,you should then see were the cable goes in,then you should be able to bar the catch with a screwdriver to release it. best of luck

You'll need to use the wiring from the 2.0L motor. Your best bet is to get Bentley manuals for the car the motor came from and for yours. They have very very detailed wiring diagrams, to do the swap.
