    I've got a MK3 2.0 bottom end under a MK2 GTI head but distance is the killer.

    Why not borrow a car trailer and collect the whole car.

    so it has been few months since last post, but we are still moving forward....still waiting for some parts and uni has been taking most of my time...as you can see engine has been test fitted and shafts from mk2 have been fitted on mk3 ends/cv joints...few other goodies just chilling there like gearbox linkage assembly, all the bushes, 2 out of 3 engine mounts (i have a mk2 engine mount for sale brand new as i ordered wrong one) and sunroof seal....

    next is engine out change break booster and replace disks and drums with bigger disks on all 4 (btw mk3 is donor car), new clutch and head gasket will be done as well b4 engine goes back in...

    if anyone knows what / how does the engine mount look or is called that sits on the support beam where the radiator is would be appreciated....

    last 3 pic should be the engine mount for mk2 i want to sell....same price that i paid for plus local shipping instead of international(might save $20-$30)
