U mean going for the 1.6 engine is a bad idea

it's a vw and not a Kia Rio

when u need to start changing wiring harnesses and stuff den it's a hard sell

stick with what u have in ur car and u won't regret it...just buy a good engine

if u were In Lagos I wld av recommended a good vw mechanic I know

PS,for the Kia Rio u can Interchange the 1.4 and 1.6 engines without hassles hence the comparison

goodluck

STOP RECOMMENDING UNNECESSARY ENGINE SWAPS.

Ma, please we need to talk. U mean I can buy the same 1.4 engine and it won't affect my Car's AC, like it's gonna work fine.

I need to also know how much everything would cost me.

Thanks for this bro, the problem I have is because whenever I put on my AC, It noticeably put too much load on the engine, I kept thinking the engine is too small and that if it were to be a bigger one, it won't have such noticeable effect on the engine.

Enlighten me pls.

I'm saying the problem with loss of power is most likely not your engine size. But you'll never find out unless you stop asking to change your engine size.

You keep asking about engine replacements, guess what? Mechanics will sell you one even if you don't need it. Your problem was that you wanted to renovate your car correct? Let the technician tell you what it will take.

I told you before. Take it to a shop, be tell them the problems your car is giving you, let THEM diagnose a solution and give you an estimate. What you'rere doing right now is running around with a neon sign yelling "take my money!"

Lol, I'll bring it to your shop to diagnose. To whom it may concern. Someone in Itire wants to sell this Toks engine to me for 100k. Complete engine.

Despite all the sermons here, you still want to buy an engine that is different from the factory fitted one.


Okay o! Do as you wish.

Doesn't have to be us. Just be careful. Plus, my husband who would have looked at it for you is not there. He'll be back around the 20th. That's why I asked you to email me that time. The other guys don't do VW.

Yep.. We buy toks engine either complete engine or skeleton grin

Complete engine comes with all engine driven accessories.. AC compressor, PS pump, alternator etc..

Skeleton.. I guess you can deduce

He said it will work. Besides, I haven't concluded yet. I still wanna take it to Radautoworks, I'm only skeptical about if I'll be glad I did or not, at the end of the day.

My mindset has always been that, a good toks engine will be always be better than fixing an old one that has a bad coil, a bad Compressor, maybe a bad Condenser sef.
