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
Hi guys looking for some information about what it takes to take the vr6 engine out a mk3 golf and drop it into the 6n estate, not much coming up on the web besides a really old thread on here just showing it finished. i know the two cars run the same chassis so subframe wise it should bolt in, but i cannot think of any serious problems with swapping the engines. so can some one correct me or should it be straight front as swap the ecu and loom then swap and bolt all the engine bits across including driveshafts, only think i think may be an issue is the drive shaft spline on a vr6 would be different to the polo. if any one can shed some light onto this as im looking into buying a clean estate.
OK guys, I'm sending my Polo 6N to the scrap man - all they know is that it's a Polo 6N so I got to thinking, I might be able to make a little more out of the car yet so here's the deal... If anyone wants a full leather interior (fronts are from a Golf - VR6 I think, back I have no idea but I think are modified from a Golf as well) and can swap the standard seats back in (scrappy needs a full interior for weight apparently) then you could get a super mega knocked down price here. It's not much work though I personally can't be bothered to do it! I have a couple of days before the scrap man comes and I live in M16 8EA so we're looking at Sunday 8th October some time realistically or super super early on the following Monday - let's say £50 for the lot if you swap everything out and put in your old seats. Same goes for the alloys and full set of continental tyres which have good tread on them though to be honest they need to be refitted. There's no slow puncture or anything (they are great condition) but they are obviously not sealed completely properly or something because I do need to put in air once a month or every other month. Again it would need to be swapped out for other wheels. Much more hassle this one but the alloys are nice I think. Pictures attached.
