Mk2 bready 1.0 to 1.3GT

22 posts in this topic

I've got the opportunity of swapping out my 1.0 for a 1.3, but I have questions i can't seem to find answers for, so here goes

 

What is needed?

 

what do I need in the way of wiring looms? Or are the plug and play?

 

Any performance upgrades apart from bike carbs available?

 

if anyone has any links to topics on this could someone please tell me.

 

thanks

Right, so I've had a read, fuel lines clips and brackets are mentioned, what do you get them off anyone with any idea, says mk3

mk3 =2f 

 

you need all the parts from the gt doner car

Ideally as above you'll want a GT donor car to convert a mk2 properly. But the fuel lines can be taken from any mk3 Polo same with the lift pump in the fuel tank and the wiring for the fuel pumps. However the inline fuel pump needs to be from a GT/G40 or have a fuel flow rating equivalent to a GT/G40 fuel pump.

 

With the engine make sure you get at least all the engine bay wiring (engine, lighting loom and accessory loom) as well as all the specifics that make a GT engine a GT engine. So the AFM, throttle body with TPS, inlet manifold, injectors, the correct distributor, idle stabilisation valve, the correct camshaft etc. and you'll also want the mk3 coil even though it is not GT specific.

If you're missing any parts that are GT specific they can be hard to get hold of now as people are reluctant to split GT conversions. I found this out when trying to piece together parts to make a 1.0 GT.

I've found a pump and lines on eBay, I've got both looms, will the fuel pump wiring be on one of them?

The fuel pump loom is part of the interior loom and needs to be cut out so usually isn't supplied as part of a conversion. As said it is easy to make one yourself but easier if you can get hold of the actual loom.

Butchered GT looms annoy me, for a simple plug and play conversion people love to make life hard for themselves. 

The best thing to do is connect what you have then try and figure out what you are missing.

These looks might have to be scrapped, interior loom gets worse, I travelled, 3 and a half hours so I couldn't leave empty handed

According to the person I bought it off the interior loom was chopped for immobiliser and alarm perpouses??, asked about engine loom, because ideally the description of what I'm buying should state any faults

Well you don't need the interior loom which is a bonus. But that has been cut due to laziness not for alarm reasons I'd say.

The only part of the interior loom that comes in handy is the fuel pump wiring.

      Hi Everyone!
       
      So I used to have a Polo - it was my first car purchased it at the tender age of 17 in June 2012 for the tidy price of £275 with a leaky fuel tank and dodgy rear brake drums. After putting on 21,000 miles on it, changing lots of parts including the timing belt & water pump -  I came to part with it in March 2015 when I fell in love with a black MK1 MX5 .... (thats another story)
       
      Anyway I was looking to buy another cheap little runaround and would love to find the polo again... I sold it to a gentleman who bought it for his daughter but due to the lack of power steering and the Audi Alloys it had made steering somewhat heavy for her. He sold it to a VW enthusiast, who then sold it to somebody else just recently in December 2016....
       
      I even went so far as to write a review about it online see below;

      Carzana search has provided me with this information (see below); So Does anyone know where it may be!? I'd love to know and see if the current owner would consider selling it back to me.. :) Please comment if you have any info - please also excuse the hair.... I was 17 

      "This 1992 Volkswagen Polo Coupe CL on numberplate J676 RPA was first registered on Thursday 2nd of January 1992 near Guildford. At an estimated 101,587 miles, this car has done a lower than average number of miles for it's age. This car had 8 previous owners before the current keeper acquired it."

      Hi I have a VW polo 2002 9n, I have a problem with my wiper blades front and back:

      With the front the wiper blades sit to high, when I turn them off the go all the way down like they should but then then come back up a bit

      How can I adjust them to sit properly?

      The back wiper does not work at all, it sprays fine but the wiper does not work, I'm thinking its the motor, so is there any checks I can do to confirm this? 

      If it is the motor, how do I get to it
       
      The last problem I have is I just brought a USB to go into the cigarette lighter unit, but the lighter is stuck in the pushed down position how can I get it out without damaging it 

      Thank you any advice is appreciated

      Hello all. I have a problem with my VW Polo 1.4 16v `98. And the problem is that my car is turning off right after starting, can`t idle at all... But when I immediately press the accelerator pedal,  my car can be driven, and after some short drive my car can work on idle.  Problem with work on idle occurs immediately after the start.  It is a bit hard that way to start the vehicle.   I hope someone can help.

      Hi All,
      I have a W reg Polo (Automatic) that's only covered 59,000. In awesome condition but I think the head gasket is on its way out. Can someone give me a rough estimate of what I should be paying to get it done? Is it easy on these engines?
