hiya all as some of you allready know if been planning to swap by twin weber carbed 1.9 8v gti engine in my 1993 309 goodwood gti for a turbo'd engine

first of all was to set a budget for the converison so it didnt run away and end up costing a fortune

i took into account my wage, my outgoings and the fact i im forking out a sh!t load on the marriage of the century, so decided my budget was 0, nothing, nada, nil, zip, sweet fa (you get the point) Laughing


first things first was to find a suitable engine, i didnt take long to get in touch with a lad who was willing to swap me his 406 2.0l turbo engine with 70,000 miles, unlocked ecu and all ancilliries (the 150bhp version) for my twin weber carb setup Cool Very Happy

so he got these

and i got this Cool (took the turbo and exhaust manifold off to have a good look at the turbo)

so next was to get the old engine out but to do so i needed an engine crane, but of course theres no money in the conversion pot so i sold my old head, block, afm and induction kit to pay for it Laughing

i got a 1000kg clarke strong arm for 150 and i sold the bits for (wait for it) 150 Smile

one of the carbs gone which was a peice of p!ss

then came the start of im sure a million problems im gunna come across on this conversion, Sad first off the two bolts on the exhaust flange were rounded so out came the 'long' screwdriver and the 'big' hammer Very Happy it come off after some good swings but i managed to saught of punch a bolt sticking out of the rocker cover and rip half the skin off my middle finger bounce Crying or Very sad Mad

then the sodding nearside wishbone was having none of it so i gave it a good soak in wd40 then after a 6ft iron bar and a 18st weight (me) bouncing on it for nearly 6 hours it finally came loose Very Happy so i cracked on with getting the old engine out which didnt take that long in the end

i went for dropping the engine out underneath, the way i did it was to lie it on its back and shuffle it out the front underneath the bumper (which sounds easier than it was) but after a bit fannying around


hey presto!!!

plenty off room in that arch now theres no weight on the front end Laughing

next thing to do will be to strip the engine bay back more, brake servo and master cylinder to come out, expansion tank, radiator, headlights, grille, fans, and any other things i find lurking, treat any rusty metal, prime it and get it sprayed back to original colour

i'll be swapping the brake servo for a smaller diesel version for clearance on the turbo and replacing all the brake lines

once thats done i shall update this thread with more snaps hopefully wont be to long Rolling Eyes Very Happy

progress aint to bad ive only had three days on it and that was dodging in and out of the rain

i did look into the 4x4 but apparently the only one that'll fit (with alot of work) is the 405 4x4 system which is a load sh!t

ill be upgrading the brakes to either gti 6 or 307 hdi's, getting rid of the big exhaust for a standard one and im sticking a boost gauge were the oil pressure dial is now on the dash

then in the future ill be 'tweaking' the engine, tt manifold with a better turbo, emerald management, bigger cam, more boost naturally and a lsd to get the power to the floor

so it'll be well over 220bhp and 240ish lbs of torque
Twisted Evil

these wont come out of my '0'0 budget though obviously (mind you, you never know) Laughing
