Different Engine.......

Post by amanita_king » Sat Jun 09, 2018 8:58 pm

Hi guys ....so I officially think im addicted to the Golf Mk1... so just picked up another (3rd) to be exact > a rare two door left wheel drive Mk1 * images to be posted soon

So this might not be new or might have been done a billion times over but i wanna give it try aswel....


So here goes ... need help/advice on what engine i should put ...i ddnt want to put an ABF engine or some other VW engine, i want to try something different like putting an audi engine in there from an A3 or A4 or whatever as long as it looks good and wont be much of a hustle

so please advise and fire suggestions my way!

Wont be installing a turbo
Just wanna keep it clean and standard!

Best bet would be older A3 as they have transverse engine layout that will help with installing. As far as my limited knowledge goes the A4's all have longitudinal layout that makes it difficult(not impossible) to fit as you have to get all the transverse layout parts like mounts and intake

No stress. Viper on the forum makes very good parts that can help with the install and there is alot of ride threads with the 1.8t and 2.0 N/A 20v engines.

You can also post up some pics and details about your golf Ex-Docter's Mk1 Build Register.
