I am, however, confused by this bit.

I had an ignis sport for a daily drive for a little while but it was pretty rough, so I pulled the engine and gearbox out to go straight into this.
I had mounts made by Southy on here as he has an m18a in his gti which is using dmw mounts.
Then I realised the ignis sport box has a different casing and the mounts wouldn’t work so I purchased a gearbox for a 2009 swift sport that would fit and rebuilt it.
I’ve had an M16a from a wrecked swift sport that I bought with moylee.
I was planning a built, n/a M16a but just don’t have the funds at the moment to build it how I want so decided to chuck the spare ignis sport motor I had laying around and put my turbo kit on it.
I’ll be running a Link Monsoon ecu from my turbo sport as I’ve pulled the turbo kit off of that for this.
Once the engine is in I’ll be getting it wired but I haven’t decided who to use yet.

Also have a few updates. Started putting the interior back together, got the electric steering column mounted and shafts cut and shut.
Fitted some coilovers from my ignis sport that we’re just sitting in the shed. Swapped the strut tops around to the gti mounts and surprisingly they fit perfect.

Update!
Got my new wheels sorted and have plenty of clearance for my wilwood calipers.
New wheels are watanabe 15x6.5+14.5 on the front and 15x6.5+19.5 on the rear.
Got the motor in, currently playing around with getting the oil cooler fitted and some other bits and pieces.
The m series really does look right at home in the engine bay of the gti.
Tried to fit the M16a sport intake manifold but it’s just too chunky so the plastic ignis sport manifold is being used.
I’m really happy with how the wheels look and fit.

Progress is a little slow at the moment.
Little update on the gti, I’ve managed to source some swift sedan shifter cables and shifter so that’s what I’ve been doing tonight. I already had a hole cut into the firewall for the cables and tonight consisted of cleaning that up and fitting a bung to waterproof it.
I’ve installed a walbro 255 fuel pump and the tank is ready to go back in.
Also playing around with the oil cooler, has anyone fitted one to the front of the radiator? Is this a good idea? Will it have any negative effects?
Also managed to squeeze the swift sport intake manifold in, it’s very close but I think it’ll work.

Oil cooler will be fine in front of the rad. Just mount and plumb to where it is convenient.

Clutch arrived today! Got a lightweight flywheel and heavy duty clutch from Australian clutch.
Also mounted the oil cooler on the front of the radiator, really happy with how it looks and fits.
Getting really keen to get the gearbox in and get this thing rolling again.
Sent my new rotors off to be re-drilled to 4x114.3 so hopefully should have them back next week too.

If you install the swift sedan shifter and cables, you will have to put the sedan selector onto the sport box which would not shift as sweetly as a sport shifter setup.

Haven’t gotten that far yet but thanks for the heads up Lawry. I wanted to use the swift sport cables but they’re just so long. Once the box is in I can get a better idea of what I’m actually going to do.

Had a few hours to get stuck into this thing today, got a little bit of wiring done and got my brakes on.
Running a Honda 262mm rotor re-drilled to 4x114.3.
Having some dramas at the front of the engine with space, turbo is sitting very close to the radiator so I’ll have to sort something out there.

Looking good!

You need another engine mount from the top to the firewall to help prevent flex and hitting that rad...

Yeah I’m hoping the superpro solid poly bush in the rear keeps it in its place, it’s gonna be close.
Also bought some new wheels in the shape of Star line 14x6.5+25 centre lock wheels.
Had to run a 5mm spacer up front to clear my brakes but they fit!
Super happy with them and gives it a real period correct race look.
Keeping the watanabe wheels for the track, these will be for the street.

Life’s been a little busy at the moment so the gti hasn’t had much attention. I did however buy my new dash in the form of a haltech iq3s street. Now that I have everything I need I can finally get the entire car wired then it’s off to get intercooler piping and an exhaust made.

And more parts have arrived! Got these made by strider, can’t believe how well they’ve turned out and how neat they look.
Definitely a much cleaner look than leaving everything open.
Now waiting on my carbon fiber front lip and carbon midwing as well as a few other bits and pieces.
