I know where i can get a free bubble with HGF and a batterd 620ti with 92k on it thats been attacked by some scum. I think ive got somewhere to store these cars but i will have to check. The idea is to drop the t16 into the bubble as a non road going fun car for the track that will be shared tween me and a friend. My friend has far better knowlage than me and has no problem making a transplant.

How simple is the drop? seeing as i have potentialy got the two cars for parts, what else will i need? Can i pinch the brakes off the 620? Any problems that will most likely occour?

Only testing the water until i can confirm time, money and a place to do this.


- Posted this in 25 forum to no avail. hopefully ill get a good response from the heads around here.

you will need alsorts of wiring hacks as the 620 isnt the best donor for it.

brakes will also fit with some tweaking.

I think emps meant the 600s engine wiring loom. You may be able to use one from a old 200 turbo. Someone will correct me on that though.

Its been done quite a few times so the info is out there. If you can't find any on here then try rovertech.net as the conversion is not exactly a new one.

The only hard bits will be wiring (requires thinking about), the engine mount and the exhaust. Most other things are relatively straightforward.
