    Default 306 GTI6 engine to five-door

    Hello everyone,

    Advertisement



    I have the opportunity to buy 306 GTI6 engine (year 2001), whether this engine will fit to my 306 five-door (year 1997)?


    Thanks for the help friends(:

    It will physically fit fine I expect. The issues will be in the ECU and wiring loom, and possibly the gearbox depending on which engine is currently in the car.

    I believe there was a GTI6 converted XT many years ago on this forum. Unfortunately I'd say all of the info was lost in the crash, but you may be able to find something with a search. It was dark green from memory with 18s.

    Complete Gti6's are so cheap now why not just buy one of those. Will save a lot of hassle in the long run.

    Good point John, my dad's old GTI6 is up for sale again. It's a fantastic, honest car. It's the Nile Blue one advertised on the forum. Also the only GTI6 currently on carsales I believe.

    It will fit.

    You will need the entire engine loom and ecu to covert over onto the existing loom.

    I dont believe it will be too difficult.

    Do you have the suspension to go with it?

    GTI6 loom should plug into your existing plugs the socket will have all the wires, the plug will not, check the individual wires you may be lucky with commonality between the instruments and their sensors being the same, it makes sense from a manufacturing point of view. \\

    Get an unlocked ECU from ebay uk, engine and engine loom and you will be in business, flywheel and clutch plate are the other issues. Get the six exhaust manifold ceramic coated and wrap it it up, it gets far too hot for anything to survive around it.

    Good luck.
