    Default mi16 > 205gti (also posted in tech forum)

    im thinking of putting a mi16 into my 205gti.
    i have found a guy wrecking a 405 and asked if he had the engine.

    "Have a complete and running 140KM 1993 Mi 16 engine and gearbox. N w cam belt and clutch at 120KM, goes great, pulls strongly to 7000RPM.

    Advertisement


    $2500.00 for the complete unit."

    price is nzd. anyone know if this is about right for a complete mi16?
    would i need everything or can i use some of my 205 gti parts to make the price cheaper?

    do they use the same engine mounts or would i need to fiddle around with them?
    would be great if someone who has done this conversion (or knows how) could tell me what's needed to be done

    $2500 for just the motor and gearbox seems pretty steep, but that could just be me.

    You can find complete driving wof/reg Mi16s going for anywhere from $1500-5000.

    This is the 1905cc XU9J4 motor you are talking about I presume.

    Who knows, $2500NZ for the whole motor/box doesn't sound like a bad deal but it would be nice to push him down a bit.

    As far as putting this in your 205 it is apparently nice to have all the Mi16 gear as it can be utilised in the 205.

    The swap itself is certainly possible and not that difficult but there are certain things that need attention. I would recommend you look at 205gtidrivers.com as they have been doing these conversions for years in the U.K. and know all about the process.
