A Few Gti6 Conversion Questions

Recommended Posts

Fox

I know most of this has been covered before; I’ve searched and searched but need a bit of clarification.

 

1. Lambda sensor – Do I need this? Will it revert back to its base map? I don’t have one, but I have one from a 106 Rallye, are they interchangeable?

 

2. Clutch – Will my 1.9 one fit and work ok? Or do I have to fork out for the MI16 / BX16v one?

 

3. Oil Pressure Sender – What car do I need to nick one of these from, will the 205 or 306 one not work?

 

Cheers guys!

1) yes you'll need one, it's a 4 wire one, it has a special connector on the plug but you could always remove that and crimp the wires together/fit different plug if you don't get a 306 specific 4 wire one

 

2) 1.9 clitch will bo too small. You want a larger mi16 one

 

3) you can use the 205 gauge sender but you'll need one of them T piece adapters that miles sells as the 6 only has one outlet on the block

1. Lambda sensor – Yes you do.

 

2. Clutch – 1900 is too small. Either a 1900 Mi will fit or a GTI6 / S16 will do. But this is dependant on what gear box you run...

 

3. Oil Pressure Sender – Early Xsi + S16's are simple screw in, with the correct thread and calibration for the 205 clocks. But these are rare, so thats why people use those T piece adaptors nad can just use the original 205 sendors.

Fantastic speedy responce chaps!

 

What about the Speend sensor? Does this just shove in the speedo drive hole?

 

I'm using a 1600 box atm, until I find a 1900 one

you will need a twin electrical/mechanical speedo sensor, it's the one with a normal hole for the speedo cable to push into a-la 205 plus it has a socket for the connector from the GTI6 loom

Just been to the motor factors and got a clutch, not cheap!

 

Fingers crossed I'll have it slung back in tomorrow...

 

Spiky, not running a diff, and it was fairly entertaining with the 1.9 engine, should be a laugh!
