Hi there, new to the forum. I own a 1987 mk2 polo fox coupe. The car has been restored inside and out but i am now looking for more power. The car currently runs the 1.0L 4 speed engine. I am wondering what swaps have people carried out and how easy it is. Looking into a vr6 swap at the moment. Any suggestions or can anyone point me in the right direction. Cheers
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)
I need polo people input I don't really know what to do to get more power out of my mk2f currently it has a 1.3 AAV engine, good engine but clap with that SPI unit, so my plan was to get some throttle bodies and run them with Omex or go balls out and buy a AFH put the AVY crank, rods and pistons in it and then run throttle bodies or just get an AVY and just put that in with throttle bodies and maybe change the sump and pick up so it doesn't sit too low because of my subframe?? I don't know what to do, iv already put alot of money into suspension and brakes so that should be all good.
After my engine packed up on my 1985 polo breadvan I've been looking for a new engine that'll fit the original mounts. I'm looking at a 1.3 ADX engine out of a 6n. Has anyone done this or seen it done? and if so how easy would the work be?
Wanting to convert my 1.3 polo to a 1.6 gti engine, would I need a new gearbox or has anyone else used a standard 1.3 box. Also seen a few threads on here for the guide for doin it but a bit confused what air box id use, cheers
