It could be hidden in someone's garage but doesn't look like it's been on the road for 10+ years

Found mention of it on one post in the G40 register.

Click on search up the top and it will take you to the search page. I mean the link, not the search box, using  that box will only search within this part of the forum. Then type j511 and search.

Been a while since I posted in here, no real updates.. gave it an MOT this week and it passed emissions first time!, replaced the lambda sensor on it finally so hoping that's the cure.
Couple of advisories on the brakes, but mainly due to it being parked up most of the time.

Random photo, looking more original these days as I need new tyres for my Compo's

You’ll also need the fuel pumps, it’s it a 4 speed being a 1 litre? then you’ll need a 5 speed ARB.

Thanks for the pointers. It seems there are not a lot of suspension differences. I'm planning to go with Bilstein B12 setup. As to brakes, I read that that Wilwood has/had a setup which fits ?
As to wheels, I'm looking at some Golf mk1 BBS wheels, 6j ET45. From waht I understand, they should fit with 175 or 185 wide tires?

If you are handy with the spanners it should be pretty easy. Its nigh on impossible to get stock suspension these days. I'd personally go with the tried and tested Koni/eibach setup  or maybe a bilstein kit but it depends on what you want from it. Also the rear beam from a GT/G40 has an arb built into it but I wouldn't worry too much if you cant get one. You could at least do with the vented discs on the front so get hold of some vw11 callipers. The bottom arms are rose jointed too rather than rubber bushes on the base models. I'm not actually too sure whether these are still available tbh. A few other bits and bobs but that's the basics, have a good search and chuck some pictures up. Good luck.

to make a long story short, in '92 my grandfahter bought a Polo 1.0. After all these years and him passing away a few years ago, the Polo came in my possesion. I already spent a decent amount of money on it, but it's still is not running ok. So I decided to go the other route and put a G40 engine in it. This will never be a daily runner, it's just a side project for fun and sentimental reasons. So, yes, it's not a real G40, but I hope it will be close enough.
So I bought a G40 engine, gearbox, wiringloom and motormanagement cpu (which the guy is not sure if it still works) and off we go. G lader I still have to source.
My question is though, what are the suspension differences vs Polo 1.0 86C and where is the best place to buy those parts, Europe or UK? I'm planning to not only upgrade the engine, but all suspension, brakes components too.
All suggetions and pointer as to the engine swap are very appreciated

I’m trying to locate my old G40 and speak to the current owner. From help on here I believe it now has the Reg G6 TSR, original plate was J511XAO.

Any help welcome.
