Is there a market for a basic kit to install G13 engines in Mark 1 cars?
If so, what would people expect to have in a kit?
Axles, trans crossmember, engine mounts, instructions...what else?
Would people want race style axles, or just a stock replacement axle?

Well, to call it a kit, it would have to have cross member, axles, shift rods, throttle cable, for G13B front engine mount, because DOHC engine sits at different angle then SOHC to get clearance for the cylinder head. The axles would probably have to be for SOHC so people don't have to hunt down complete front hubs with brakes for a GTi. Those parts are getting scarce.

From that I gather that stuffing a G13b turbo into a Mark1 would be simplified by fabricating a bump on the hood to clear the G13b and leaving all the other stuff as it is. I'm going to make an aluminum pin on hood and an aluminum pin on rear hatch to lighten the car anyway so putting a bump on the hood is no biggie.
