if you have the time and money I would say yes.
There's a guy in Cape Town running a B16 in a mk1.
It pains me to say this but stock for stock :

B20 Vtec mk1 will be faster than an ABF mk1.

Then there's all the go fast bits for that motor. You'll probably get flack for it but there's a B18 powered Uno around this forum too, and iirc that car hauls!

Yes they are wicked engines. But why would you want to put it in a VW body. There are perfectly suited honda bodies out here. As a matter of fact if you take a crx it has a better shape for aerodynamics and is probably just as light as a mk1.

And think of the cost involved in doing that swop.........

Motor + 'box
Custom mountings
Custom sideshafts (and possibly inner CV's)
Pipes for radiator
Custom zorst
Wiring (not difficult, but a kak job)
Gear linkages/cables

hahah i'm just curious thats all. i'm weighing all my options here, but from what i understand the b20 will cost a lot more money to put in. I don't have the velo yet, but i am close to buying it, so i want to buy it and send it to someone who can swop for me.

I hope your wallet is deeper than the Marian Trench. Sending it in to "someone" to do this swap is gonna cost plenty.

its not a vw but i wonder

Those B20B Motors are pretty cheap R5900.00 R6000.00 and funny hey has 1 and a half to 2 years ago it was 3500.00 for this motor.i found 1 at a pawn shop for R2000.

I think if a mount can be maid up with a adapter plate for the vw gearbox with aftermarket management then maybe it could work .

It is assuming that u can mount a vw box to a honda engine.

people mound toyotas in microbuses carrevelles.(Adapterplate) Well im not clued up on what all goes into this but if it can work why not

also a ffz box runs out of steam so will it handle the honda seeing as a honda revs more too.

if the box and management and mount is sorted then the rest is basically as if you anyway giving attention to the motor . New exhaust people anyway do this for breathing and sound and performance. water pipes ect its anyway a good idea then you know you have new parts in anyway.

what do you guys think
