2.0L 16V Mk3 Golf (9A not ABF)

1329 Views 5 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  SNAFU
I'm wondering if this would be worth it... Swapping a 9A 16v engine in a Mk3 Golf... Or should I go with the traditional way... tuned 2.0 crossflow, VR6, whatever people stick in their Mk3 nowadays? I always thought a 16V Mk3 would be cool and unique.
Was it ever done before? if so could someone post some links, pics, whatever? Thanks in advance

yes, Volkswagen did it
It would be unique in a sense because you'd have the "old" 2.0L 16V in your MKIII.

I should mention as an FYI that this GTI was only commercialized in Europe and perhaps Asia. NA never got it.

right on. ABF is like 9A's older brother, they are both daddy's pride & joy.
