My name is Simon and I drive a 1992 Mk2 Golf GTi that had its 2.0 16v 175bhp/150lbs engine and 5spd 16v box replaced with a Mk4 1.9 GT TDi 150 engine and 6spd box. Apologies for those strict on only wanting to look at mk4/mk5/Bora etc but I would like to discuss the engine and further engine mods on here....so thought I would introduce myself first. I won't bore those mk4 diehards with exterior shots of the mk2 but will limit it to pics of the engine bay.

The car sits on grey 15" Compomotive MOs, with Brembo 4 pots/305mm discs, FK coilovers, strut braces and ARBs all round (+ a load of less important extras) and of course....

The engine has got filter and decat S/s exhaust, AMG Merc I/c (not fitted in these pics) and ECU remap. I'm hoping for power figures around 200bhp/300lbs (not back yet from remap). LSD and L&B flywheel should come shortly.

My other car is an '03 Saab 9-5 Aero saloon which replaced a 850 T5 estate. I am neither a dentist nor a farmer. [:)]

Sweet car mate! Don't know about everyone ele, but 'd like to see some exterior shots of it too! Is it a bit of a street sleeper then? Bet you've surprised a few mk4 golfs with that lol

Haven't got it back yet from the company doing the conversion.....next weekend (why is it always after Intl??!?). I have driven it in its unfinished state and it was quick, although I haven't had a proper drive in anger yet to know how quick.

My Mrs used to have a mk4 TDi 130 - the induction on mine is much louder and sounds much deeper. I will probably look to relocate the battery to the boot and make a housing for the filter to sit in behind the lights - hoping I don't need an air vent.

Cheers for the welcome.

Great effort, I have seen plenty of 1.8T lumps in Mk2's but this is my first PD.  Do you do the conversion yourself?  Post some piccies of the whole lot, we are not 100% MKIV orriented.

My new project is a little quieter and a bit more subtle. Apologies for the size of the pics.

I didn't know about a previous PD engined mk2....would like to catch up with him if you know his details.

That's a great car although I'd have stuck with the normal MKII front end.
Thats what I've returned to in order to fund the BBS. I prefer the look of the quad GTi set up but its not as exclusive imho.

I really really like this car, well done. I wouldn't worry about any snobbery from MKIV owners, you'll most likely find a lot of us have had MKIIs at some point. I've had an 8v & 16v... I'd love the time for another.

Hmm - Rallye running gear and a hybridised set up, I think you'd have me camping outside your door until you gave in and sold it to me!

Mate that is awesome! I bet thats a right blast to drive,i've got a 16v and thats fun but yours must be something else!!

I need some bbs splits for mine they are the nicest wheel for a mk2 i reckon.

Good work!!

Nick.
