Not sure if this has been asked before and I'm new to cars but what is the black stuff in the engine bay that is on either side?

Can you remove it? If so what's the best way of doing it? Cheers :)

      Hi,
       
      The two Polos in question are:
       
      1. 6N2 2000 1.4 75hp AHW engine, cable throttle - okay working, probably a bit under-powered, will check cylinder compression
      - normal AC
      - 2 doors
      2. 6N2 2000 1.4 75hp AUA engine, wired throttle - engine is bust - overheated because of oil pump failure.
      - climatronic
      - 4 doors
       
      I'm still considering other options, but the best at the moment seems to be to combine the two into 1 fully working Polo, with the 4 doors Polo as the base.
       
      The main question is: "Is the engine swap plug and play?" - this concerns only the engine unit, with everything immediately attached - water pump, pulleys, alternator. This is to put the AHW engine instead of the AUA. Should I swap it with the gearbox or there is no need?
