rear hatch just needs a black border painted on to hide the sealer underneath,

need to tighten the wishbones bolts
need to bleed the rear brakes (will do later)

looking good, i would personally change the alternator setu to a gti6 alternator bolted on solid top and bottom as origional and tensioner the belt with a cambelt tensinoer, it will look tidier and means you can cut down all the top bracketry from that cast iron mount as it very heavy

i have no idea how hard/easy the XE engine is to do, so cant really comment.

but the gti6 engine is fairly easy, once you sorted the loom,

you need to sort the MC ex manifold and thats it really Big grin

Ive driven few 8v gtis and they feel more nimble and precise than my s16 205. Im sure with the correct suspension it will correct this. Not sure how the greater weight up front compared to the stripped out rear will affect things?

How much more heavier is a Gti6 engine than the original 1.9 engine in a 205 GTi?

That is of course with the aircon and power steering systems removed from the GTi6 engine before insertion into the 205 and the "heavy PAS pump bracket" chopped off. I'm thinking there isn't much weight difference then. Smile
