    Polo SDi :(
  1. Hi. I am looking for the part number for the engine mount used by some to install a 1.8t into a lupo gti. (Possibly a polo diesel or somthing) I know most people now go with the mk4 golf mount set up but I really want to use this one. Many thanks

    1.8t loom advice please

    Buy a copy of "elsa win" off eBay. That's the workshop system vw use. You can every wiring diagram on there.

    Gearbox help!

    Yes sounds like 3rd synchro. Part is cheap but time consuming to fit. I'm in Manchester -a bit far from Scotland!

    Will a 6speed Lupo Gti gearbox fit a 1.8T?

    Bum Thanks for the replies. So what options are there for a 6 speed?

    Lupo 1,8t 20v conversion

    Loving your work. Regarding the mapping of the car -you mentioned a program u are using. Where did u get it from? Does it use a standard diagnostic cable like vag com? Is there a forum? This is something I'd like to get into.
  8. Noticed most people use the gearbox that came with the 1.8t engine when they do a engine conversion. Is this just with the non Gti models? Will the 6speed Lupo Gti gearbox fit??

    Engine swaps emmision testing

    Emissions are tested for the car, not the engine. So a newer engine in an older car -no problem. I had a 20v in a mk1 golf so it didn't even need to run the CAT. An older engine in a newer car could be a problem with emissions -does your Lupo have a CAT? Your old air cooled engine will struggle to meet its emissions level. The white mk3 pictured above uses a beetle chassis so is still a Beetle with a Golf shell ontop.
