    Ford Ecoboost Turbo on a 6n2 1400 8v?

    Hi, I have been using club polo for quite some time and become a member about a year ago so I thought it was about time I'd do a build thread of my own project or two. A few years ago I bought a polo 6n2 that had some previous modifications and with a few of my own has become great both on road and track with its superior handling (mods will be listed later). The only thing that lets the car down is the lack of power only being a 1400 8v (60hp standard). I am planning on swapping out the 1.4 for the 1.8t 20v sometime in the next two years. Before I do that I must finish my other big projects first but there's nothing wrong with a small project in my spare time with a few spare parts and a little bit of fabrication right? So thinking that I managed to get my hands on a perfectly good turbo off a 1.0 ecoboost engine that had blown internally and luckily enough I got it for nothing as it would have ended up in the scrap pile anyway. If this turbo is good enough or a 1.0 engine then surely it will be good for a 1.4 on low boost? I'm not expecting massive power gains or to spend hundreds or thousands to make it perfect, just messing around with the engine and a small turbo and a few tools in my spare time for a bit of fun. I'll post more pics and keep this thread updated as much and as soon as I can when I start this small project (hopefully soon) but here's a few pics I took when I was measuring up the parts and as always when starting a project it looks like it all will fit and looks great but if experience has taught me anything it's that nothing is ever as simple as it looks 😉
  2. Hi, I am new here and was wondering if anyone has fitted the 1.4 tdi engine to a petrol car. I was wondering about how much wiring differences there is for the diesel glowplugs, relay, etc. And if all that comes through with the engine loom and hopefully into a standard wiring set up in the car which caters for all 6N2s or are they fuel specific main car interior looms? Both cars are "S" model 5 doors, I was thinking to change fuel tank, filler hose and even lines, etc. I think I have to probably change the subframes too. Basically what I am asking is has anyone done this before, and do i have to strip both cars down to near enough bare shells to complete this? I already own both cars, and know it would be cheaper to buy another 6n2 tdi, and I have spoken to DVLA who assured me the completed car will be 30pa road tax if i get it emission tested and it is still the same as in original tdi. Many thanks for any advice that saves me bareshelling the pair of them needlessly lol Andy
