Think you should give me the rear lights my mk1 golf Icon_biggrin

The pic of the engine looks like it maybe a 2L agg or 2e lump. If it was me then i'd look for a PB mk2 1.8 gti engine and affectively make the best engine from the 2.

mk2 1.8 8v gti pb head, fueling system and early loom
your original 2L bottom end

mk1 gti exhaust manifold and downpipe with custom alloy spacer

Nah, vr6 too much work for what you get over a 16v.

ABF 2L 16v in the mk3 golf would be sweet though

way too much work for the outcome putting a vr in unless you want to charge it... but then a 16vt would be better anyway.

just put a 2.0 16v in it then when you get bored tune that.

im pretty sure the g60 engine would drop in the same as the 2.0 8v thats currently in there.

basically its a golf gti engine with a supercharger. Basically!!!

you might have issues with finding room for intercoolers etc but its a tried and tested conversion so plenty of people would have the ideas and answers.


the engine in your car at a guess is an AGG 2.0 8v. you can tell this by the breather pipe that goes from the block up to the head/air intake.

as lee said you could very easily fit a 1.8 8v head on top which will/is supposed to offer increased airflow. i have a similar engine in my mk2.

You'd still need a complete g60 engine conversion including the loom. They are approx 600 plus and thats minus custom intercooler and boost pipes.

Bang per buck would be 2L 16v. I'll have to take you out in my golf so you know what to expect my mk1 golf 51732
