any conversions for mk4 golfs? I am doing a 1.4 to 1.8t conversion and a guide would be VERY useful, as would a wiring diagram
Will always love my mk4 but she had to go...225 Quattro TT in its place....but its still black (she lives on in spirit!)

Ye thats a thing i need to know before doing mine i know all the mechanical stuff and feel confident there but the loom of my mk 2 gti 16v and the the 1.8t ecu + engine loom what do i have to alter or how do i re wire it? I would obviously need the 1.8t ecu also wont i ?!?! On that Qtech site is says you dont need it, but engine needs management! I guess they ask you to sent the wire to them and they mod the wire and supply u an ecu of some sort?? Am i right?

But £600 for that kit when im an electronic engineer myself  :shocked: I guess i could do it my self if i had both the mk 2 16v gti wiring diagram and the 1.8t wire diagram. If i do this i can spend that £600 for some goodies for the 1.8t engine before i drop her in

Any tips on where to start for the wiring, any one got a custom diagram they have made when moding there loom?

Oh ye someone metioned about the 020 Gearbox going bang im sure if you stick a quaiffe diff for around £500 it wont go bang and traction will be improved

 :wink:

I rang up a vw specialist garage about dropping a 1.8T 20v in my mk4 2ltr gti.

They said 4 grand  :shocked:

Does that sound about the right price?

Sounds about right to me. 4k is at the cheaper side. Ring up some of the other specialists in the mags and get some quotes.  :shocked:
