Clarts broken MK5 GTi
« on: 24 April 2019, 17:22 »
 So I've just bought a broken MK5 Golf GTi with DSG on an 07 plate, Had it a week, love the car but it now sounds like a tractor!  :sad:
I'm going to put an engine in it, I'm thinking an S3 engine maybe? I'm on a budget so I want to do things on the cheap, but not cut corners!
I'll be installing the engine myself along with help from my Dad.
So my first question is what engine should I be looking at getting?
I want to keep it as simple and painless as possible but I want a quick reliable engine.
I've been told that S3 is the way to go, thoughts please people. :)
