    97 gti trashed motor...what is needed to upgrade to a 787 besides motor

    Since I have to put a whole engine in anyway.....what all needs to be changed to accept the 787 or will it just slide in? with no major mods computer or physical wise.

    You would want a full donor ski. The computers are not the same, and most of the engine accessories are different.

    The 720 uses 4 motor mounts, the 787 uses 3. You would need to re-fiberglass the motor mounts. The entire computer, wiring harness, are different. Fix it, sell it, and buy a GTX if you want a 787.

    Well forget that idea......Just bought it as a project.....the entire exterior is in mint condition.....never seen one this old in this good of condition. Its for my wife....I was just seeing if it was a drop in upgrade. I'll just throw another 720 in it its good enough for her.....Shes scared to go over 50 on my rxtx so no big deal.....obviously its not worth all that work for a measly 25hp
