    Default WTB: 205 GTI engine block

    Hi everybody, been a while since I last logged on. Typically, something else goes wrong this time it happens to be a nice big crack on the engine block.
    So would anyone happen to have a decent block for me? Mine is a s2 gti. I believe DKZ engine.
    Thanks in advance.

    Why not just go to Centre Road Wreckers and buy the DKz from a 405 there? Cost $200 or less. A series 2 will have a DFZ but DKz will bolt in an give an improvement.
    Otherwise yes, I have a block

    Sorry, it is a DFZ.
    If i were to get a DKZ, is it a stright swap, no need to change anything else?

    The early management works fine with this engine so no need to change.
    I can check out the Centre Road Wreckers engine , I plan to go there soon.

    Hey,

    I have a block available for $50. However I didn't use it because there was pitting at the bottom of the sleeves.

    Another option would be a fully rebuilt motor I have.

    Cheers,
    Nick

    There is still a DKZ at Imlachs, Centre Rd Springvale.
    It is in a silver 405 on the LHS shortly before the top LH corner of the yard.
    Still has plugs, injectors etc fitted so should be OK for water in bores. Also cam belt is intact.
    Struts have gone so this makes the removal a little easier.
    These are $260 complete but if you took off the inlet manifold it would pass as a carby long motor, price $120.

    I managed to get a block, I may look into the DKZ block later.
    Thanks everyone for your help, I appreciate it.
