i considered the same with my 1.9turbo, all costs/things considered, sell it and buy one with a bigger engine, thats what i did.. T:

Only way I found to get my 1.9 to go faster was leave the family at home, empty the van & rivet the throttle pedal to the floor.

Sorry bud not much use I know but I reckon it'd be better & probably more cost effective to start with a different platform. Just do what I do, load the family, crank the tunes, sit back & chill laughing at all the muppets in such a rush to get everywhere! ;)

i am considering that, have seen 1.9tdi golfs late 90's for as little as 250quid :)

having had a golf before i can see the engine is very similar, got the kit and the will to change the engine, assume you have to swap the sump and other minor bits and peices off the old engine, do you have the change the fly wheel?

assuming i can either cut and weld the exhaust into my original down pipe?

has anyone done a guide for engine swaps?? or willing to have a chat with me to talk over the good bad an ugle of the swap!

thanks
