I have got a mk2 syncro and want to convert the engine to the mk3 doh6 2.0 16v engine.
please help ineed know exactlywhat I need from the mk3 im stripping and what I can use from the old parts.
Will the mk2 gearbox fit fhe engine?
Will it be able to fit with the current subframe?
Just need a general run down with how difficult the conversion will be?
Will I be able to keep the 4wd? I want go really otherwise it wouldnt be any point.
All help welcomed thabks guys and help.
this is the ABF 16v DOHC 150hp version right?
should be just to stick down there. if your car is CE2 the wiring will pop right back into your relaybox
the MK2 gearbox fits. you can also use the current subframe.
yes, you can keep the syncro. but you will have to get creative with the exhaust.
there arn’t many 16v syncro manifold out there, and if you find one, they probably won’t fit the ABF which is a tall block
yeah the dohc is ABF
so i will need a modified manifold aswell then lol
Right then guys i was thinking what engine would be the best for getting the most speed out of my car in relation with how hard and how much work and money is will cost.
DOHC 2.0 16v mk3
1.8 16v KR mk2?
2.0 16V mk3 should be as cheap & easy as the 1.8 16 valver to fit
& with 1 of these
will give you this
The chip was made on dyno as the car produced 171BHP and 210NM with standard camshafts, This car had also catalyic converter removed.
While the VR6 motor is a heavy lump to have sat in the nose of a Golf 2.
what ever motor you fit you will have to modify the exhaust manifold anyway.
so go for the mk3 16v DOHC then is the advice you give, thanks bud this is really helpful in the progress.
currently looking for an engine atm.
im from the midlands but can travel if any1 hears of anything of any dohc engine doing let me know asap. thanks
will a 1.8 8v syncro gearbox fit onto the mk4 1.8 20v turbo engine?
For that power you really need an 02C cablechange gearbox, its stronger & a bit longer geared as well.
