Money no object 9N project

Recommended Posts

CraigAnderson

I bought a 9n polo in march that needed a new engine (AWY) so I did that and now the replacment engine(Also AWY) has just blew its head after its 3rd rebuild and so I would rather have some fun with fitting something bigger like a jet engine or a saturn 5 rocket but as they don't fit standard 02T gearbox I was thinking 1.6 8v or 20 8v from 1J golf. 

Am so far cost of car and engine and everything else am like £500 in the hole so rather than quit and buy something else I would rather stick something fun in it for long term as a daily runner.

Use what's there in the range already. 1.8T or 1.9TDI.

But wheres the fun and doing what everyone else has done, V5 golf engine would sound funny in a 9N as would AAA Vr6 engine.

finding all the ancillaries and converting to rear wheel drive will take loads of money. Will sound great.

 

Not been done before.

I like you're thinking but that's out my price range plus I hate ford's for me it have to be g.m's LS motors like LS3 :D

Nice. I think an LS3 would need to be mid-mounted or you'd want some kind of periscope to see over it. Not so good as a daily runner. See page 1 of the fitment guide.

 

"User Note: The Chevrolet Performance Parts LS376/480 crate engine comes equipped with the LS Hot Cam and the LS376/525 comes with the LS ASA cam both of which are aggressive high performance camshafts that may cause slight surging below 2500 rpm under light load. This should be considered a normal functioning occurrence given the aggressive nature of these camshafts. This surging can be avoided by increasing either the rpm or throttle of the engine at the same given velocity."
