Been thinking what to do with the spare 1.8t that I will have after my stroker build. A couple of us here in Dubai are scheming to build a track car that would be used on short coarse racing, a bit like an autocross setup but with 2 or 3 long stretches thrown in the mix.
So the car options to transplant the S3 engine into are as follows
1 - A3 8l - if there is a manual one up for sale when the time comes.
2 - seat ibiza 6k, these seem to be the cheapest ones to buy.
3 - seat ibiza 6k2 facelift
4 - seat ibiza 6l
so what would be the lightest car once stripped down to a track car. I have a soft spot for the 6k ibiza as they look identical to the vw polo playa I had back in South Africa.
I would love to drop the K04 lump into a mk1 golf but they don't exist here
