Im trying to find out what engine conversions are avaliable to the mk3 golf.
Would it be possible to fit SR20DET engine from a sunny gti-r into it?
If not does anyone know of any others that will fit.
thanks. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

well, no...not without an insane amount of fabrication and custom work. the only non-vw swap i've ever seen is a porsche 4 cyl. into a mk2...
just pick up a Performance VW Mag at your local Bookstore, I'm sure you can readily get them being from the UK...and check out what other people have done. 1.8t's, 3.2L VR6's...

why would you want an sr20 into a golf? are you being serious?
right now with the way gas prices are, you should look into doing a tdi swap.

Technically you could put just about any engine in a golf. I saw an S10 with a Twin turbocharged viper V-10 in it. There was a Mid-engine corvair with a 454 in it.
I personally can tell you there is an aweful lot of fab just in my MKIII 2.0Turbo build. (about 20 hours so far, and I am not an amatuer at metal work )
The amount of work to make an engine with completely different dimensions, wiring, and peripherals is definately a task. And chances are you will get flamed pretty bad for even mentioning a Nissan engine in the VW forums.
But, if that is what you want to do, then go for it. It would certainly be a lot more original than the majority of the Dubs on here.
iirc there was an sti engine in a eurovan. either that or it was a porsche engine... there was a video of it drifting, anybody know?
