Recommended Posts

Just wondering if it’s worth me putting a chip on my polo?

thanks

Chipping is normally to take advantage of other petrol engine modifications that let more air in, so require more fuel.

 

Might be worth it on a turbo diesel where the fuel flow is limiting factor, but smoke test needs to be good at MOT time.

Thanks for replying, I’m thinking of a new exhaust system, induction kit and a new cam, so after all that a chip would be beneficial? 

Thanks, jack

      Hi everyone, 
       
      Although I'm new to forum I'm not new to VAG cars since the family cars are either VW or Audi! :p
       
      I currently own a 1.0 Polo 6N that I inherited from my grandfather. This cars as always been in the family being bough new from the dealer back in 1995 (I even have the delivery and first service records!) and it's very special to me since it's the first car I remember as a child - I even have pictures as a baby in the back seat of this car.

      Since there isn't really a big Polo community here in Portugal - Golfs and TDI Ibizas are a thing around here - I joined the forum hoping to learn more about the car and to find ways of improving and maintaining it.

      Cheers from Porto!

      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.
