At the mo I'm looking for some serious contenders to PSI for engine transplants...

I've contacted Awesome in Manchester as well as G-werks...

it will be a TDi 110bhp or 130bhp with a 6 speed box.. bhp depends on prices just yet..

anyone know of anywhere that could carry out the transplant other than those mentioned?

Details please..

dont go with awesome, they charge well over the odds for anything, i should know, i used to work there. Wink

but i'd definately go with the 130pd, i know PSI have experience doing this conversion and have done it well so personally, if i was paying anyone to do it it'd definately be PSI

Midland VW - used them myself and never hear bad things.

Also might be worth contacting Storm developments and some of other firms in back of PVW.

Can try up at SB Autos in Burslem a guy called Steve he isnt a vw specialist but he has done alot of engine swaps and a few 1.8t's

He has owned a fair few VW's also so he knows what hes doing.

I might have a pop up and see some of these guys...

where abouts is this SB Autos Huxley?

Midland VW won't undertake the diesel transplant as they have too much on..

Need to contact Storm
