90% sure you will need new mounts as the engines are so different in size..
New driveshafts, new gearbox, new clutch, brakes.. etc, etc..

You could keep some of these things the same but it wont be very long before you crash or they brake..

i reckon you should just get the GTi front everything, engine, driveshafts, hub assemblies and everything.

probably easiest.....and safest

You still need to convert the back brakes from drum to disk aswell.. I can't see the point! I'd just splash out on a GTi or a VTS, unless you REALLY wanted to go for the sleeper look.

if i were you i would just buy a 106 gti and be done with it . and mod the engine on that . cause if you do an engine swap and something isnt quite right its buggered . or even worse u could crash and right off the car. so just get the 106 gti and mod the engine on that. if you want a sleeper look then dont change any of the body work or lights. and it will look sorta standard.
