6N2 1.8 16valve PL engine swap?

Post by Joerge »

how hard is it to swap a PL 16 valve engine from a gti into the 6N2 polo? does the tranny need to be swapped too? if so, what axles do I need?
what about the engine mounts? will they need to be modified?

Isn’t a PL a mk2 golf engine?

That's right Alex. The mounts are all different, so you would need the MK2 subframe as well. I found this on the internet, might be interesting to read :mrgreen:
