Re: swift gti efi or complete engine?
I have NEVER done anything with the entire LONGblock GTI engine setup (the gti twin cam head, intake, fuel, etc..) so I can not comment on that one. What I did do, however, is I used the GTI shortblock (no head, cams, intake, exhaust, etc, just the lower block) and a tricked samurai head. Everything else is stock on my engine.
The short block itself mounts and bolts to everything exactly the same. The flywheel is different though so you'll have to replace that.
GTI to Samurai (shortblock only, * items are needed for long or short!)
*flywheel + bolts
*oil pick up tube (you'll see, this has to be bent some to fit)
*water pump (I think...., think the swift water pump will not work with samurai fan, I think it'll work for the swift timing belt cover, dunno)
*dipstick + tube
samurai timing system (belt, tentioner system, lower timing gear)
*and the samurai motor mounts.
I think that is all that would be relevent to a longblock or shortblock replacement
(longblock needs more stuff, shortblock needs stuff that is not relevent to the longblock swap).
