    Question VW Golf 4th, Engine Swap! Help!!

    Hey guys,
    I have a VW Golf, 2001, with a usual 1.6L engine! I want to put in a 1JZ-GTE engine, or a 2JZ GTE! Would any of these two fit? And how hard is it to do!? lol!

    Don't swap it, just sell the car and buy a car that was 1.8T from the factory. It'll probably be less cost in the end, and you know it was done right.

    Lol...

    neither of the supra engines would fit without major modifications. With that said though, it would be one of the best projects ever Assuming you get it going.

    The guys are right, you should just sell and buy another car if the 2.0 is not good enough.



    do the 2jz

    any rear wheel drive conversion requires more effort than any little brother should do. he should get a nissan 240z or any lexus sc300.
