vw 1.8

Response to Re: Engine

whats always made me wonder about this swap is that rover cars used vw internals in there own gearbox casing with some cars and if the mgf was one of these then there is a mid engined shift setup designed to work with vw gearbox shift patterns and mechanism which is worked by a rod linkage from the lever. also its becoming a popular swap for the lotus elise and there obviously parts available to shift the gears in one of those.

the actual engine is a real gem, depending on spec and make / model its fitted in, it turns out between 150 and 210 bhp in standard turbo form and the internals are safe up to 320 bhp
