Ruins Mk2 handling, hanging an extra 250-300 lbs further over the front wheels is not a great time.

Jesp, from somebody whos done a 1.8T swap... Don't get a 16V with a cam & carbs you'll have way more fun and less issues
here legally doing is a bit more of an issue as I wouldnt be able to comply with the emission laws.

For me the easiest and cheapest way, paperwork speaking, is to swap in a 1.8t

I coukd work over my block but it's a bit tired

What's preventing you from doing a 16V?

If you do a 1.8t The easiest to fit is the AEB as it has an external water pump and most of the hoses ETC line up, the emissions don't really fit or work well but you can do it.

One finding a decent block that doesn't have a bazillion kilometers in it

And 2 emissions, it would be in a more contaminating bracket for the same period of time.

However if I swap a newer engine from the same brand and within 20% of the oem powerband I don't need any paper work

I've read that I can slap a 2.0 block in my golf and I know kf a webpage that sells brand new blocks

The 16V head is also a direct bolt on to that 2.0L head...

I'll read into it, I don't fancy any paperwork

The ABA swap out of the MK3 is almost a plug and play swap, Does it have to go through a physical inspection?

Just an eye inspection, how much hp is the ABA engine rated at?

Posted: Nov 23, 2020 at 22:59 Quote
90-115. One time inspection or annual?

Anual inspection, once the engine is in I can do mods but it has to go on paper.

That's why I originally thought 1.8t, if I can get a low mileage engine I can do basic mods and a remap they will legally require me to do a brake and hub upgrade which would be needed anyways.

But if I can snag a well kept ABA 2L I may give it a shot, ideally under 100k km

Ajax has a point.
The 1.8T is not half the fun of a naturally aspirated, especially on narrow countryside roads.
Turbo engines, even the modern ones, are no match for a proper naturally aspirated engine, unless you're after top speed on the autobahn.

Rate my homemade pulled pork sandwiches


This one is with the light version of coleslaw - no mayo or sour cream


This one is with all the fixings - cheese, lettuce, pulled pork, tomato, coleslaw and tabasco. I had 3 and a half of these and nearly went into a food coma

Where my man WTH at, is it morning already in Best Dakota

Killing the food game as always brother

You need to up your bun game. Get them toasted up with the cheese melting.


Would still smash though
