Vw Lupo 1.4s, Engine Conversion to Golf 1.8t.


Recommended Posts

Hi, Since i posted the car having the problem it had i haven't touched it, Me and My father have a spare 1.8Golf Turbo we are planning on getting rid of and he had the idea of swapping engines with the lupo and making some funky build out of it. I had no issues with it seen as ive left it for nearly a year and its just gathering mold etc. So i have a Question. We have the cars, The golf works fine(other than a slight gearbox problem which will be fixed before putting it in). The loop i think is working now.. Somehow 🤔. What else would I need in order to swap them over other than a engine hoist haha, Straight swap, everything in the golf into the loop. Any help would be massive!

If it was simple, everyone would make one.

If it was that hard, nobody would.

You need :

Lupo GTi pedal box and gear selector.

mounts fabricating.

shafts making.

intercooler and pipes.



that's the simplified version.

I've shown this to my Dad and all he's asked is 'What gearbox do we use as the golf needs a new Clutch, and Gearbox is a 5 speed. Anyone help?
