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.
