  1. Having to engine swap my 1.0L polo due to a snapped cam belt/bent valves. Are any of the other 6n engines (1.4 8v/18v) a straight swap? (e.g no gearbox/loom etc) Seem to be mixed opinions online
  2. Hi, am pretty new to general car scene but am happy taking bits apa. I have run into the issue of one of my camshaft bearing caps has cracked where the threads to hold the rocker cover on are. The bearing housing is ok it's just the threads for the cover. I am aware these dont need to be f tight (correct me if wrong) therefore there is the option possibly of using something like JB weld. If I use this will it be strong enough, anyone had this issue ? The other option is do an engine swap, I have the engine completely stripped at the moment as was cleaning the bay so it is more or less ready to be pulled out. What engines and gearbox combinations will fit a mk2 89 bready? My final question is, is it worth engine swapping? I am 17 so insurance may poo themselves or I have to lie... The sensible option is swap to original engine or do I buy a new cylinder head and try to change that with mine? Any help appreciated. ( have attached files of broken part) Thanks a lot G
  3. Hi all, I’m new to the forum so forgive me if someone has already answered my questions. I have a 1984 Mk2 polo derby saloon with a 1litre 4 speed. I was wondering what newer engines or unusual engines may be able to fit into the small engine bay. I have barely any knowledge so I may sound very stupid but I was thinking about whether a Audi TT 1.8 APX non turbo engine would fit, or a 1.0 Ford Fiesta ecoboost engine as they’d be more economical than a 1.8. Cheers

    H22 6n swap ?

    Hi guys, new to the fourm. I was talking to a friend over the weekend and he let me know that there was a thread on a h22 swap in a 6n, I've had a search about but can't seem to find anything. Was wondering if anyone remembers it or knows of the owner ? Thanks in advance.
  5. Hi. I’m building a mk2 polo and I’m thinking of putting a 6n engine in using standard injection. What are my options when it comes to the immobiliser? Will I need to get the standard ecu reprogrammed? I know there is a good thread on engine swaps but can’t seem to find any info on using injection opposed to using bike carbs. any information will be appreciated or links to threads thanks liam
  6. 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
  7. Would like to change the engine in my mk2f for a 6n2 gti what parts am i going to need from the donor car?
  8. I can remember being told by my insurers that in the case of an engine swap declaration, the new price is calulated according to the donor car. So my question is: if I were to swap say from a 1.3 3F GT to a 1.4 ABD, might the insurance decrease as the 1.4 Golf is presumably cheaper to insure than a GT (don't know if it is actually cheaper - just in theory)? Or, is there a 'tax' added for the extra perceived risk of an engine conversion? Has anybody ended up with cheaper insurance despite using a larger engine - say specifically a 3F to an ABD? Or did it increase?

    1.8T AUM conversion

    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
  10. I have been thinking about swapping the polo 6c gti engine into my 1.2tsi. Just wondering if anyone has attempted it and if they can give me advice on if anything else needs swapped in like driveshafts(etc)

    6n2 engine swap

    hi guys just wondering if anyone knows how easy it is to swap from a 1litre to a 1.4 8v thanks
  12. I have a VW Polo 6n 1996 and I have a VW Polo 2000 now to make this easier to explain my 1996 Polo is my midfield one to a good standards and the 2000 one is standerd they’re both 1.4 8v 59bhp so virtually the same engine obviously apart from engine codes. im looking at swapping out the engine in my 1996 due to having 150,000 on the clock and unfortunately a brick hit my gear linkages underneeth and made the whole gear selection messed up 👎🏽. How easy would it be to swap the engines out? And obviously the gear box with it... What sort of complications am I looking at as how relitively easy would it be? I have worked on this car to many times and have a really good understanding of it.. Hopefully someone can shed some light haha!
  13. Hi all, I'm sure this has already been covered but I can't seem to find the relevant thread, if I've missed one please push me in the right direction... Looking at getting a mk2 polo coupe s and wanted to do some research into engine swaps, I know one of the more popular swaps is the 1.4 16V AFH, but as you can't seem to find them anymore I was wondering if anyone has swapped the 1.6 16V from the 6n2 GTI. I've seen lots of people doing AFH/GTI hybrids but didn't know if there was space for the full 1.6 lump. Any other ideas welcome and sarcasm appreciated! Cheers!
  14. Hello. Been the proud owner of a 6n2 gti for about 2 years now. Had some intermittent starting issues recently especially when re feeling. I was told it could be the duel fuel pumps. Not sure as I never managed to get a definite answer!! Any ways. I’ve been looking at doing an engine swap. I’m a weekend mechanic with limited experience. I’m sure I couldn’t do it and get it right. Got a quote from one company that do it all in! £10k!! So that’s out the window. Does anyone have any suggestions. I don’t want to spend too much! But I love this car!!! Help. Gary
  15. Alright guys, Iv just gone an brought myself a second breadvan as I couldn't resist but I was just wondering how easy is it to change the 1 litre in my new one to the 1.3 ?

    Seeking my old Mk2f

    Hi guys and girls I'm hoping someone can help me. I sold my Mk2f polo back in late 2016/ early 2017. It was FOX coupe in blue that was originally 1.0 but I converted it to a 1.3 GT engine with some mods, Piper Cam, Bigger intake and a few other mods. I'm sure the guy who bought it off me was from eBay by the name of George. I'd love to have that car back as it was one of the nicest I have driven. If anyone has any information or can point me in the right direction I would be very greatful, Maybe even some pint money! If you could ask around any groups or friends that break polo's etc The REG is L468 SYJ and it is not taxed, MOT'ed or Insured Thanks again
  17. Hello guys, doing engine change on my polo 6n2 1.4 8v match model, and I'm new to the forum I'm going to be putting a 1.6 arc engine into my 1.4 8v and it's going to have everything else needed for the conversion (brakes, rear disk beam) so just gunna be engine running gear ect, all I really need to know is what I actually need to change the motor, I believe it's just the following: engine loom ecu gearbox driveshafts radiator steering column steering rack Does the gti loom just plug into my interior loom and it will work or have I got to do some electrical wizardry? also is there anything I've missed, and how easy is it as it's my only car I use to get to work and don't want it overhanging the week I plan to take off to do this. any help appreciated and sorry if it's In the wrong section. Thankyou!!!
