I've got another engine!
« on: 23 May 2003, 17:22 »
i just purchased a low milage AGG engine for my 8v gti and i'm quite excited about getting it ready to swap!

i've already stripped it and done a bit of gas flowing and other modifying and i'll be fitting my kent cam and pulley that i'm already using in my car.

has anyone bored out a throttle body? changed injectors? big bore intake pipe?

i'm doing this in my own time and would like to hear your suggestions. all help appreciated

If you take some pictures of your progress and keep a diary as you do your modifications, we can post an article on the site

ok doky, that sounds cool.

i didn't take any pics of the parts in standard trim, and i've done quite a bit of work already, but it's still fully stripped so i'll take pics now.

i'm only doing work on top end, using my bottom end as it's running sweet. but taking the flywheel off the new motor for lightening and balancing.

when it's all fitted i'll be looking for the best ecu upgrade to make the most of my mods. ?what's the best?

p.s. i'm in scotland
