  1. Evening peeps 👋🏻 I'm a new member on the site but have been searching various posts for the last year or two as a guest. Right, here goes my 1st post. I'm looking to own a Mk2/F Polo Coupé/Breadvan by the end of this year. Not fussed on the engine size for the 1st year or so (1.0 or 1.3). However, as I have a broad imagination, I was wondering wether it's possible to wedge in the Isuzu X15DT engine out of the Corsa B ('93-00). Whenever I come across a diesel swap in the MK2's, it's typically directed towards the 1.9TDI or 1W (not as easy to get hold of in the UK so I was told). Any who, the topic is a little different to the usual tuning of the 1.0-1.3s or the 1.4, 1.6, 1.8 20v and 2.0 swaps. It is an unusual swap but I chose this engine because of its fairly easy tuning ability, the fact they're bullet proof and can handle a lot of boost (to a certain extent) and it's a diesel . The Corsa boys seem to point out that with some tweaks under the bonnet (costs are pretty minimal) the engine can make a Corsa into nippy machine. It's not Golf GTi fast, but Bear in mind they weigh slightly a bit more than a MK2 and they take off. This could lead into a potential sleeper build if possible. I don't want to tune the original engine as its only gonna be my workhorse till I get fully used to the car. Also quick reminder, I've only done about 7-8 months of mechanic experience (not a lot by a long shot) in 2013. I then changed career paths, so depending how well my brain can remember stuff, it'll take a while to get used to certain terminology. But I'll learn as we go along. So, what does everyone think. Possible sleeper alternative or too bonkers to even comprehend. COMMENT!!!
