    Default s3 power in s1 205gti, wiring sugestions please

    Can anyone help me with my wiring dilemma? I am about to start to fit an s3 motor into a s1 205gti. I have both an s1 and an s3 wiring loom and a s3 ecu. Where can I get some help on how it is all done? What can you guys tell me?

    Throw away the S1 loom and fit the S3 loom. Buy a Haynes manual. Diagrams for both are in the back.

    Good to hear. I have the Haynes manual but am yet to decipher it. I thought I would mention the s1 loom as I was not sure that everything from the s3 loom would have somewhere to go and was not sure how much chopping was going to be required. It being an s1 car and all.

    can anyone tell me if the crank pickup from the distributor of the s3 will fit with a s1 gearbox? or will i have to shift my gears from this box to an early mi16 box housing? this is possible, it would just be nice if it was not required

    no, you'll need a gearbox designed for Motronic pickups. ie Mi16 or 90kW 205 GTi.
