6N2 Engine/Gearbox swap

Post by Jack_swinscoe » Sat Jul 22, 2017 9:30 pm

Basically just picked up an Xreg 6N2 1L mpi, and 4th gear blew itself up at 30mph. Im able to buy a 1.2l polo 9n engine and gearbox but am wondering if they will fit without too much modification. :?:

Simple answer is no. The 9N is a completely different management system and uses canbus unlike the 6N2

You need either a 6N or a 6N2 box. Ideally the same engine size too or the ratios will be out

I have a 2001/Y complete 1.4 16v 3 door 6N2 with 12 months MOT going cheap with a very good engine and box, had head work, belts done etc with receipt.....
