this is a friends mk2 8v gti, we are fitting a seat leon 1.8T APP code engine with a QPE plug and play loom and ecu

EDIT: it will be 205 bhp, the engine is the non vvt APP with k03 and not ko3s

Ronan,
Is the APP engine a cable throttle? I found this sheet Click but I am not sure what engine that is cable throttle and has a K03S. It would be nice to get a KO3s on a cable throttle, otherwise I will probably get an AGU (200BHP) but 230 souns even better.

The AGU is supposed to be a handish engine to fit, they were in the earlier mk4 Golfs if I'm right.

yeah i have an agu intake manifold on the mk1 engine and either the aeb throttle will fit or the 2l 8v one, you need the plug and part of loom too for the throttle position switch and you have to send whatever throttle body you use to qpeng so they can adapt the loom to suit it.

some pictures of the huydraulic pedal box conversion.

the pedal box is from a corrado G60, the top bracket needs to be moved as its in a different place in the mk2
you can see at the top of the picture where the old bracket is removed, the pedal box bolts straight in on all the other mountings, you need to hammer back the bulkhead where the clutch slave cyl fits and drill through the holes from inside the car.[IMG]http://cars.vage.ie/syncro/albums/userpics/10002/Dsc00630.jpg

this is the bracket cut from the old mk2 pedal box, i held it in place with the bolt and tacked it to the pedalbox


this is the bracket after welding it to the pedalbox, you can see how far out of line the old one was


the other side

before bolting the pedalbox in place i shaped the bulkhead a bit better with a hammer and dolly and then painted it


the pedalbox back in place and the cllutch mastercylinder bolted in place(if the clutch pedal is too high there are plastic spacers used by the factory between the cyl and bulkhead to correct it)


and in the engine bay before painting the bulkhead


almost done, i need to swap the brake master cylinder resevoir for one with a clutch mastercylinder feed from a corrado

Nice to see it coming along, You could have saved yourself abit of time by buying this adapter fitted to some SEATs it lets you covert the hydrylic clutch on the gearbox to cable. About £44+vat from SEAT.

i know that but have you pressed the clutch on a mk2 with one of those fitted? i prefer the feel of the hydraulic clutch conversion, its easier on the left leg!

i have more pictures on the camera of the mk4 cable shifer mechanism being fitted, must stick them on here tomorrow

mk 4 selecter unit fitted in mk2, i removed the mr 2 mounting bracket from the body shell and then welded a tube in to the mk4 selecter so i could bolt it in without squashing it


nw corrado vr6 gearbox mount and new steering rack gaitor, the engine mount will be changed for a g60 one whenever it arrives


mk4 gti O2J gearbox with corrado g60 mouning brackets, the gearbox case had to be 'machined' to fit the bracing bar and the threads drilled out to allow the two bolts pass through (me hides the angle grinder and the drill
)


when the mk4 engine mount is removed it leaves a hole in the timing cover, i made a blanking plate and tacked it to the timing cover, also the metal bottom sump was fitted to allow more ground clearance

engine and box bolted together, new mk4 gti clutch was fitted to the mk4 dual mass flywheel, we plan to replace it with a g60 flywheel and clutch in the future, that trolley trev robbed from some supermarket comes in very handy when fitting engines!


engine and box in place, new g60 front rubber mount was used and an O2O front mounting bracket was modified to fit , the block is thicker where the starter bolts pass through and it makes the mount sit about 10 to 15 mm too far to the drivers side, the cam pulley sits very close to the master cylinder i loosened the servo and slid it over and gained a bit more clearance, im told a 10mm spacer undet the drivers side engine mount gives loads of room.


the metal bottom sump gives a lot more ground clearance than the alloy one its an inch or more shorter and uses a shorter oil pick up pipe and turbo oil drain pipe. see how the bottom of the sump is level with the crossmember


this is the seat leon down pipe, its cut just before the cat and it actually bolts in to place as it is but its too close for comfort to the steering knuckle and needs to be modified.
