So i thought id do a build thread on my polo gti that i bought almost a year ago and This is a work in progress and i don't have an infinite ending wallet so its been on hold for a while tbh but i absolutely love the car and its a shame its just sitting in my garden at the moment but it will get finished i'm determined and have got the skills to do it just not all the tools and money. So anyways i bought the car on the 3rd of June 2019 off my sisters boyfriend who had bought it 4 days prior to me buying it because i fell in love with it instantly and it was on my driveway till 8th of august when i passed my test so it was an incredible first car you can imagine but a month of driving it the gearbox blew up so i went out and bought a new car till i could get the old gal back on the road https://imgur.com/aJjmUvB
Yes the age old question of swapping a 1.8t into a polo but not any polo a mk2f polo. What im after is some advice about keeping the original clocks in the polo but running a 1.8t but I’m struggling to work out what I can do for a loom to get it all working correctly, ideally I need the obd port for possible remapping in the future and if the engines running rough. I’ve got both cars next to each other so it should make life easier but I doubt that 😂 It it will probably be easier if I bullet point my answers any advise is welcome Can I run 1.8T (AUM) on it’s own with out the immobiliser? Can I have it push butting start with out needing the key and clocks? Can I use the existing ECU? What driveshafts should I use? What brake setups are best for this? Would it be easier if I got a new pedal box because the AUM is DBW ? Thank you in advance Harley
