DIAGRAMS:
How the motor physically bolts in. For the record....You can use any mk1 motor mounts you want. They can come from any rabbit, cabriolet, jetta 1, scirocco 1 and 2, etc. They all bolt up to any 16V and any 020 no problem.

FOR THE EXHAUST YOU CAN ONLY USE A SCIROCCO EXHAUST MANIFOLD AND DOWNPIPE OR A SUITABLE SUBSTITUTE...FOR EXAMPLE, A HEADER MEANT FOR A 16V SCIROCCO OR A SCIROCCO EXHAUST MANIFOLD AND TTT DOWNPIPE. YOU CAN NOT USE MK2 GOLF/JETTA EXHAUST MANIFOLDS OR DOWNPIPES.
This is the money shot of CIS-E wiring.

This is an older pic that I took about a year ago so some things may not be perfect. However you can see exactly what wire it takes to power up the ECU,ignition module and knock box.



The following HUGE pic was made by Nick Turner aka NTRabbit.
Modified by me on 21 June 05 to make a correction about the coil wires.

Re: The Official A1 16V post. (83Caddy16v)

83Caddy16V I stared at those diagrams forever before I did my swap. I knew them by heart! I ended up printing them and have a picture of those diagrams right by me during my swap.
Later this year when I tear out my CIS-E in favor of SDS I plan on doing a detailed picture step by step of EVERYTHING.
Thanks for the comments guys. Later I will I categorize the posts and make it easier on the eyes

Re: The Official A1 16V post. (GTI aficionado)

I have a question for ya Jason...On my A2 16v I originally had AC and Power steering and I dont want to use either of them. What do I need for brackets and special belts for this? Thanks

Re: The Official A1 16V post. (Je2tta)

Unfortunately Je2tta I don't have the text book answer. My setup is a non-AC and p/s one too. I removed the powersteering pump and the compressor. Then I had to change the pulley on the 16V alternator and I run one single belt for the alternator and water pump. Back in America I have the belt number written down but that's 8000 miles from here.
Unfortunately "AC" is to small of a search query for the search function so you going to have to dig some.
L8r, Jason

Re: The Official A1 16V post. (vdubspeed)

The belt you need is 10x950 for a non a/c non power steering set up.
The correct factory bracket is this one....It's $70 from the dealer. There is also a special tensioner arm and toothed bolt but I don't have the part numbers for that handy.

Is this the same belt size if you use the original (meant for a/c & p/s) bracket, or will you need the OEM non a/c bracket?
