1.0 to 1.4 16v swap. (I know I’ve searched already)

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow Lupo nuts who are still here. I’m looking as swapping the 1.0 MPI engine out my MK1 Arosa for a Lupo Sport 1.4 16v. Now I know the basics but asking for some help clarifying some bits...

- Key/immobiliser. Since my Arosa doesn’t have an immobiliser do I need to swap the barrels and interior wiring loom?? Especially if the Lupo doesn’t have an immobiliser as well??

- Driveshafts. I’m assuming they are the same and my 1.0 ones will do the job?

- Engine mounts. I’m assuming the 1.0 and 1.4 ones are in the same place?

its not a massive engine swap so I’m hoping it’s not a complicated one?? The Arosa is off the road so don’t need to do it quickly! If I’m getting bits from a car for ‘breaking’ what should I be asking for??

Many thanks in advance!!

Sam

bin off the lupo sport idea, buy a late 6n polo with an afh engine in it.

change engine, box and loom.

change your hubs for the polo ones with 256 and fit the rear discs whilst your at it from the stub axle onwards.

shafts and mounts etc, use the lupo ones.

immob, wire in the polo stuff and then tape the polo key into the reader and stuff it under the dash somewhere.

you're lucky with an early mk1 arosa that this one is a lot better and more plug and play than the sport.

What size engine is the afh, I’m assuming it’s the GTi? I was hoping with going from a 1.0 to a 1.4 the lions might be the same and it could be a simple plug and play swap?
