    2.5 V6

    Basically, will it fit. I can get a mate to fit an engine, so thats not a problem, but will it fit into my mk4 atsra??

    Would like a turbo, but oo expensive!
    If at first you do not suceed, try again!

    It will fit , what about a c20let?. That would at least be more tuneable (spelling).

    Why put a engine in thats older than the car. dont seem worth it to me tbh. V6 sounds good, conversion Im considering when the warranty is up.

    Just a number of things really, tuneability. Faster because of weight and power difference. Be easier to fit. Handling will be better because its a lighter engine . V6 is good in the noise department and throttle response but in all other departments the c20let is better .

    c20LET WILL be an easier conversion. Will go in and will retain the handling a little better due to weight. However V6 can be supercharged and NOS quite easily to 300bhp+

    However C20lets will make 350bhp, with Turbo mods and new engine internals. I know the C20's can be expensive to get hold of, mainly because everyone wants one for his/her NOVA !!
