  1. They seem to be out of stock of a lot of models, well all the ones I would like anyway. Hope they get some more in soon.
  2. Currently have a steel sump fitted to the SE, part number is 030 103 601M which I think is fitted to the 8v. Is it worth changing to an alloy sump or just stick with the steel one?
  3. Found this in another thread, so looks like the blocks are the same size but can't swap the crankshafts over or is the stroke difference taken care of by the conrods and pistons?
  4. Still not sure whether the deck heights are the same or not, but surely they must be different else how can the block accommodate a longer stroke? Or am I being thick??
  5. Mine has almost all the factory options too. Haven't got the SE bag though, still looking for one of those. Not doing anything that couldn't be reversed.
  6. Auto box won't mount to block from manual engine. Bolt positions are different.
  7. Have been given first refusal on a Polo GTi 6N2 engine and had the idea to swap the crankshaft, rods and pistons into the auto SE I have. Is there enough clearance inside the BBY block for them to fit and turnover? Would it actually run with a Sport head etc and remap? Have to keep it as an auto so converting to manual is not an option. If it did all work how would it drive with the ratios of the auto box? Had a quick search to see if any other fool person has actually done it but couldn't find anything. Or is just a non starter? No pun intended!
  8. Can anyone tell me what the difference is between the engine sump on the Lupo 16v Sport and the 75hp Lupo 16v? The part number for the AUB engine Sport sump is 032 103 601 RA the 16v sump is 032 103 601 J, is the Sport one aluminium?
  9. All sorted now, and not too much damage done to the plug. It's easy once you realise how it comes apart! Thanks.
  10. On top of the auto gearbox is a round wiring plug which looks like it should twist to come apart but despite my efforts I can't get it apart. Anybody know how it should come apart before I end up butchering it anymore than I already have?
  11. Would you consider selling just the door cards and rear panels?
  12. Would like a complete set of heated leather seats & door cards from either a Lupo Sport or GTi. Anyone know of any for sale?
  13. Do you still have the standard springs and shocks? Does it have factory rear parking sensors too?
  14. Do you still have the red HT leads & coil pack?
