Ok guys,
GTi engine into Justy,
have done the searching and have got bits and pieces of information but hoping to gather it all in one place to determine my next action.
I have a standard Justy, I have options on a healthy GTi which Im keen to purchase to donate its soul for my Justy conversion.
So it will offer front and rear brakes, Cv's front roll bar and shocks for Koni conversion.
And of course the engine, etc.
To fit a GTi engine I believe I remove the GTi flywheel and clutch and replace with AWD flywheel and clutch. do standard flywheel bolts fit?
What about spigot bearing
then install into car.
transfer the engine bay wiring from donor car into Justy, does this connect into the justy loom anywhere or run it in parallel or just replace the entire front part of the loom?
use GTi fuel pump in Justy tank after dropping propshaft and tank.
do the water hoses just swap over?
replace Justy brake cylinder with GTi one to clear intake and possibly maintain pedal effort/effect.
Exhaust? Gti downpipe into Justy 2nd pipe? probably need a part made here?

what else,
any advice from those who know greatly appreciated
hoping to have a mate and myself complete it over a weekend in a borrowed professional garage so want to plan and fully understand what Im in for.
Please help.

Cheers

its a long shot but i know some newer 3 cyl shells have the o/s engine mount in a slightly different possition to a gti, my 3 cyl mount is the same as a gti but i know of others that arnt
worth a quick messure
if it is it wont be hard to sort out, just drill out the spot welds and move it
