Re: Syncro engine swap - DJ to AGG

AGG is a 2L NA petrol engine. Mine came from a Golf MK3 GTI.

Re: Syncro engine swap - DJ to AGG

Regular MOT for safety checks.
Also a basic report from a garage saying “the engine has been swapped and the installation is sound” for DVLA to update their records.
Also tell your insurer.

Re: Syncro engine swap - DJ to AGG

It’s legal! If only I knew then what I know now - this is what I wrote 3rd April 2015 “And so its starts. What better way for a chap to spend 16 days while his wife is away. This should be easy eh! Step 1 = take DJ out step 2 = take AGG out step 3 = put AGG in What could possibly go wrong?” Thanks f...

Re: Syncro engine swap - DJ to AGG

MOT test abandoned due to minor coolant leak. It’ll get booked in again soon.

It’s not mine. On east coast. I’ve pointed owner at this thread, so you should hear from him.
Sorry, it’s already taken.

Re: Rusty roof chop

I’m also just staring to look at what bulkheads are available that I can utilise. I’ve seen a T6 one and a Sprinter one advertised fairly locally so I’m going to have a look and measure up and see if one of them will be suitable. I know of a T25 B pillar full internal bulkhead with small window, co...

Re: Syncro engine swap - DJ to AGG

Thank you, but don’t beat yourself up. Since 2018 the gory details have been on Fb. Wolfy has new, quieter exhaust. I’m hoping it lives up to the promise as I like quiet. I could’ve tried to cobble one together myself, but after 5 years I’m grabbing all chances to speed things up by buying in soluti...

Re: Syncro engine swap - DJ to AGG

I’m very peeved that for £100 an auto-electrician told me the CPS was fine and the ECU was faulty, and a ECU testing business for another £100 told me the ECU was a write-off as the tracks had lifted from the PCB. This sent me down nearly a year of head scratching and chasing hares unnecessarily. Bo...

Re: Syncro engine swap - DJ to AGG

It starts! Turns out it was a cruddy Meyle CPS from GSF. Swapped it for a JP one from BW and it fired up no problem.
Exhaust coming from Wolfy on Fb.
Waiting on BW having their air intake solution back in stock.
It might move this summer!
