Mk3.5 1.8 crabio to 8v 2.0 gti
« on: 10 March 2016, 20:53 »
Hi guys time has come to change my little crabios engine I have managed to buy a 2.0 8v gti agg engine and gearbox for £50 at the moment the head is off Pistons and linners are cool no marks or scores
Only thing I don't know about is will I need to change the wiring loom from fuse box to engine bay 🤔
Any info would be great guys
