or go for the 16v opition, the vtr engine is a good base for modding your get alot more power from it in the future,
ummm they are not a weak engine I dont understand the comment
there isnt much more hassle to put this engine in so dont understand that comment either
so you need a unlocked ecu
and a 205 gti tank and return line wow such a hassle

To expand a little; getting an unlocked ECU with the engine sounds easy, but often isn't and the looms are often difficult to decipher because the numbers wear off the wires. Fitting the tank is easy in principle, but can be alot of hassle in practice with the age of the pipes and bolts making for lots of breakages. The fuel lines aren't straight forward, because of the brake line on the drivers side on base models gets in the way and using the low pressure hose already there would be ill advised. It's not rocket science, I was pointing out that these are the issues that need to be dealt with. It's up to the person doing it to decide how much hassle that is.
cheers sandy for pointing out why they can be a problem, I couldn't be bothered earlier, having a bit of a bad week so being abit snappy today
the return pipe is easy over come by drilling holes and putting new pipe clips to the back of the car

The exhaust won't be a simple fit though Doug?
