McGuinn said:One of our AO members in the 145/146/155 forum is looking for assistance on doing an upgrade from a 1,7TS converting to a Q4 engine...
Anybody give assitance?
wrinx said:Err, hopefully someone with a bit more idea will give more info but I would have thought the gearbox with its props would be a pain but apart from that it should be possible.......presume we're just talking about the engine and not the full 4wd bit 'cos that would be a whole lot more involved
Obvioudly would need to swap ECU, keycode, keys etc etc over too
speed freak said:I would think it`ll drop in ok but you will need to swap gearboxes driveshafts ecu poss fuel pump exh and maybe alter modify engine mounts............it might be a good idea to swap the brake servo and master cylinder and the front hubs and discs as well so you can stop it
Sounds like a bit of a task but should be relatively easy to swap............
..................Have you comsidered dropping the subframe with the engine gearbox attached and also the front suspension and just swapping the lot might make it a bit easier
Yupp, I'm going to do a full rebuild, once the engine is out then I will change some gaskets, the drivebelt, and I'm going to clean the whole engine.alfajack said:Could be a number of things if it has been in a crash, I would suggest a rebuild anyway, just for piece of mind that it will run well once in the new car!
Sounds an interesting project though
BTW, on ebay there is a guy in Germany breaking an entire Q4 it seems, loads of engine bits!
