Looking for a whole engine conversion for a gt or just the head. Lent mine to my brother and need it back but wanna keep him on the gt smiles
I’m after all GT wiring looms from the fuse box forward
I would like to ask if anyone could shed any light on the following problem which has been getting worse during the last 6 months.
When cold (damp weather too) the car will cold idle badly.
Driving like this will make it jump/hesitate around 1200-2000rpm any gear. It does not like the accelerator pressed too quickly. If I drive 2 miles then switch off, it will NOT start again - only turn over. Leaving it for 10-15mins it will start ok again and then idle & run smoothly. Again, once the initial problem has gone, the car runs nicely for the rest of the day.
The car has new fuel filter (correct one) and new oil separator.
I have tested the imp values of the HT leads and coil pack and all values seem as per std.
Every year I normally remove and clean out the throttle body too with TB cleaner and toothbrush.
Spark plugs seem ok (3 pin Bosch as per Haynes Manual I have bought)
Air filter is new
Sometimes I add injector cleaner to petrol whilst filling up.
I can think of the following possibilities but would like to hear from someone with more experience, ....rather than just replacing the list of items below (expensive)
1) injectors ?
2) coolant temp sensor ?
3) clean TB again ? (last time 1yr ago)
4) coil pack micro crack in plastic case + damp weather ? (although the car is fine for the rest of the day)
5) new plugs ?
6) MAF or air related problem / TB dirty / TB idle control ?
7) anything else ?
I greatly appreciate any constructive tips to resolve this relatively new problem which for the last 8 years had never occurred.

Hi All, looking for a bit of advice on trying to get a 6N2 GTI engine (ARC or AVY) over to running on a throttle cable rather than fly-by-wire for a conversion I am working on.
I have not yet sourced the donor car and hear rumor that there were some 6N2 GTI's which ran a throttle cable, any more information on this would be appreciated. I believe that the majority are FBW. I am presuming that I will start with a Polo rather than a Lupo as the donor card look to be generally far cheaper in Polo form.
I wondered whether there might be a plug & play option with an AFH throttle body (and manifold if required & injectors can be swapped)? I will be using the standard GTI management.
Any advice on which models of the AVY/ARC that run a throttle cable or advice on throttle body swap options would be greatly appreciated.
Just wondering if anyone knows the whereabouts of my old GT couple. I sold it to a lad called Gaygeo many years ago. Wish I hadn't sold it, but hey. Just curious to know if it's still around.
