hi everyone, my abl engine'd t4 isnt running well at all and im getting abit annoyed with it to say the least. its terrible on fuel, used way too much water and oil and is utterly gutless so im thinking either i, strip and rebuild the engine and make it like new or do something a little fun like dropping a vr6 into it.

golf vr6's are relativly cheap to buy so im thinking about buy the whole car can swapping the parts over but id thought id ask all you lovely people if its been done before and is there any real gremlins in doing this conversion?

thanks for your interest i look forward to hearing from you :)

As nick says it's a big big project.

One that people don't consider and they should is a G60 conversion. Huge advantages in going this route.

1. Existing 1.9 engine mounts work
2. Existing 1.9 sump and oil pick up works
3. Exhaust manifold too but need to be careful about warm air feeds and stuff.
4. Easier wiring.
5. Engines are relatively cheap but a bit awkward to find. Sadly the supercharger is the awkward bit.
6. gearbox fits straight on
7. No drive shaft issues

Worth some thought
