Lupo AWH engine converted to a Polo gti AVY Help!

Recommended Posts

I've been looking and ive found thread polo gti conversions but non specific to my need so sorry if this is a repost :(

I'm getting a lupo with engine failure and it needs a new engine, the engine code is AWH

I can get a polo gti engine with;

5 speed box

wiring loom

ecu

key

transponder

manifold

water pipes

header tank

mounts

gear selectors

starter motor

and all the sensors.

All of these parts are OEM polo parts and it needs to be fitted into a lupo with the code awh

My questions are -

Straight fit in?

what mounts do i need?

anymore info i should need?

any before you ask i'm a honda specialist, not volkswagen :( The more info the better :D

The mechanical is nothing, the electrical on the other hand is, easiest way is to strip interior out, strip dash out, take front off car, take engine and box out, take complete wireing harness out, now fit polo harness you will have to do some plug work and if you have central locking and electric windows it will be a pain, then put it all together again.

ps No, ARC or AVY code engines will not run off AWH wiring and Ecu

would be easier if you got lupo gti harness

depends on year but if your awh loop has a cable throttle, you will need fly by wire throttle then, not exactly a deal breaker tho. cos if you use harness it just plugs in :shifty:
