I have my old mk2 golf from 1990, that i did allot of changes to over the years.
And after successfully installing a Speeduino ECU management on it (using external 36-1 wheel, COP ignition, etc), and some tuning. i made a terrible mistake of not using the original spark distributor (i figured the spark is handled by the ECU anyways) dus the engine oil pump did not work as wel ): (the engine ran for a few hours before snapping the timing belt)
i figured the block is gone from this error, and i need a replacement.
MK2 engine: 2E
Now for the actual question.
i have an mk3 with 1.8 engine that uses a carburetor, i noticed that the intake ports are smaller than the 2E, and i cannot use the 2E intake manifold on it.
my goal is to use full management for spark and fueling, and i planned to use the 2E head on the 1.8 block. (the 2E head is new)
my assumption is i need to use the timing belt from the 2E.
Do i need to expect any issues ??
Can this be done?
i did not receive the mk3 license paper yes, so i do not have the engine code yet.. so i added some pictures.
Please help.. THanks!
