Oh yeah? run a mile mate, high miler with possibly bad engine problems, looks a nice motor but I wouldn't take a chance on it.car has a slight oil leak, noisy wheel bearing which will be sorted before it goes and the exhaust is bowing as the manifold gasket is perished i do have a new 1 which will be supplied with the car
open to sensible offers
No it won't. G40 is a solid motor. However. it'll need a new turbo to get past 200. That's the ONLY reason I wouldn't swap. Otherwise I'd swap. The 6N2 GTIs hold value very well.
That engine will not last running 15 psi through it, i'd know as I have 3 friends with G40 turbo engines in there mk2/3 polos. Looks a good car, nothing wrong with mileage as long as it been looked after. Wouldn't go for it though as it has an 'oil leak', will probably be a bottomless pit of money to fix it!
Mine runs 23psi. With no problems.
Who are these 'mates' with turbo'd G40s??
The little G40 bottom ends are good for 300bhp if you know what you're doing.
As for fixing it, parts are about 50p, and always fitted with a 10, 13 or 17mm spanner :rasp:
If it's a silver 6n2 I'd steer clear, the initial conversion was a proper job, now it doesn't look that way.
