my mate had a mk4 1.4 but it was involved in a crash but never mind that, so it was wrote off and he bought it back of the insurers he then got a full gti trim clocks and so on but i just found out that it was running a 2.0ecu (changed all the keys and locks wat not) and 1.8 injetors it was well quick and i was wondering wether it would have the same effect on my bora he said he would never do it again as it took to long to swap every thing over and if this would work fitting a 2.0 ecu to my 1.6 would i be able to use my existing keys with use of vag com

cheers tinsley

From what I can decipher from that Pollardesque sentence is that you have a friend with a 1.4 Golf, running GTi clocks, 2.0 ECU and 1.8 injectors.

Why would anyone bother going to the hassle, if it can be done without great aggro, of putting in GTi clocks.

I doubt a 2.0 ECU would be plug and play, and even if it could be coded, doubt it would be compatable to run a 1.4...

And 1.8 injectors. Seems a strange place to start for extra power, thats presuming 1.8 ones are the same/will fit a 1.4?

Just seems an incredibly strange and long winded way to go about getting some extra power and TBH I doubt it working all together anyway.

Dat sounds like dee bom!

FFS

Mate, stick 1.8 injectors on your 1.4, (well maybe just one id its single point) and you will drive nice ans sluggishly to the petrol station more often.

It's "well quick" you say, with the 2.0 ECU, ......strange that, a 2 litre ECU on a 2 litre is not well quick!

I think your mate is telling you some little porkies. Maybe he put the whole 2 litre in and did not tell his insurance company.......!!?

If he got the chrome dials on his GTI clocsk, they do make them well quick...........at least 200 mph faster!

It could of course be that the speedo is reading well off, making the car appear fast, as he has the worng clock in it. If you want the same effect, get some tippex and some marker pens........or just colour over the MPH and change the K to an M on the KPH reading on your clock...you will instantly increase your speed by a factor of 1.6! ("well quick" in your language!).

Maybe try this as the answer for serious speed, ? http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Electric-Supercharger-Turbo-Citroen-Saxo-VTR-VTS_W0QQitemZ190073401634QQihZ009QQcategoryZ36680QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item190073401634

You better tell the guy that walks in front of you waving with the red flag to watch his back when you get that bad boy fitted.

(ps have you earned all your five stars yet, at work?)

Just wax it to make it more aerodynamic.

Also etch out a small silver R32 logo and stick it inside the rev counter. Power increase in seconds. Could shock all of those around you.

hold on was the 2.0 an 8 valve

and iirc the 1.4 is a 16V

i could not see that working in any aspect of a 1.4

OVER FUELING BIG TIME

ok a 1.6 ECU in a 1.4 would work but there is more to it than just sticking 1.8T injectors and a 2.0 ECU into another engine

you would have more fault codes than the national lottery has loosers

the codes on the sticker on the ecu have to be identical.

Sorry to step on toes, but I don't think there's any reason to give the guy a hard time just because his English isn't that great. I have always been a strong believer in this forum being open to all without prejudice.

I'm not trying to be a goody-goody, just trying to promote good feeling.[:$]

*** By the way Tinsley, it would be easier to answer your question if you took more time over your spelling and punctuation, and by the sounds of it your friend may be telling porkies.
