Engine swaps emmision testing


Recommended Posts

Hi guys

Was wondering if all engine swaps had to pass an emission test... i ask this because ive toyed with the idea of a beetle engine which

is of course very poor on emissions. Would it have to pass an emissions test?

Don't start questioning my reasons im trying to break free from the cookie cutter mods everyone seems to do.

We never had problems on emissions on our tdi?

And surely the emissions of the car will alter as it will reflect the engine on the V5?

Scotty, I think/hope he's talking about an old school aircooled Beetle engine.

A new one would be pointless.

Rear mounted and everything? That would be awesome. And have a really big boot :lol:

I have no idea why I thought that was a Mk4. Guessing that was the day I forgot to bring my glasses to work :roflmao:

Koop is a retard.

I've said it before, I'm here to make the rest of you look good.

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.
