I keep thinking about what engine conversions we might see on the show scene, anyone had any thoughts?

In the past we've seen mk1 golf VR6 conversion, even a mk4 Polo with a VR6 squeezed in! Obviously the size of the ups engine bay will make it near impossible to put a bigger engine in the front, but how about a VR6 in the back with 4 wheel drive?
or a 1.8T in the back with the 3 cylinder turbo'd in the front?

I wouldn't want to own a heavily modded car like that but I'm always impressed when someone does a conversion like that and its done professionally, just to show what can be done.

So far I can't find anything on the web, might be early days yet, I bet someone somewhere is working on something though

Welcome to the club Andy
I have dreamed of having a fast up! for over a year now haha a "sleeper" would be amazing!!
but unfortunately you would need some serious funds like that citygo build
I would have thought a lupo gti engine would be the best fit?
