    i have an 84 rabbit gti, i have looked all over the web and cant seem to find any information on any swaps. are there any good upgrade engines that would fit or be a near fit so i can have the power and performance i want?

    i have an 83, and i plan on doing a swap once i get the money, i suggest taking the 1.8T from an MK4 the upgrading the turbo and chip on that, it will add lots of power and even more being on a lighter car, the engine mounts are all the same, the tranny will hook right up, should be the easiest route for an upgrade, i also know that black forest industries sells VR6 conversion kits if you would rather have that
