Supply and fit rebuilt/known used 2.1 engine

Postby Sir Brixalot » 06 Mar 2020, 20:16

Any recommendations?

VW engine company on SW6 has some good reviews. Any first-hand experience? Just had a recommendation from someone who knows his stuff so I'll call them tomorrow. Looks like it'll be around £2800 fitted which will probably be a bit rich on a van I'm going to sell this year. If any traders on her have a decent used one they can fit please PM me. Cheers


Anyone used The Engine Shopin Erith?

Fitting a 2.1 is quite a simple affair and ssome good garages will take it on.
Have an hour on the phone and ask if they would.
Or if they know somebody.
There are a few engine suppliers on here.
Search for Marco Mansi on Facebook.

You could sell it with the current engine as spares or repairs, presuming the engines shot

£2800 fitted :D

Is that plus vat?

90% recycled, only the gasket set will be new.

Don't want it broken Its way too good for that. It's got a long MOT so I don't have to rush. I'm going to check the head nuts and take it from there. I'm sure a decent engine will turn up eventually,

That's what I'll be hoping for. Got a DG now and if I'm spending I might as well make it worthwhile. Engine still feels as if it's running really smoothly, better than ever - so fingers crossed that it is just undertorqued head nuts.

DiDidn't mean break it or sell it to a breaker, its sellable for someone to buy to fix,obviously if the Van's decent otherwise, what's actually up with the engjne

Disappearing water from header tank, not drawing from reserve tank, and failed a 2ml sniff test although it took a while, which I'm hoping means it's a small leak. As I fix one leak another appears. Had a lot of these failures with previous Elite engines so I recognised it quickly before overheating. I'm hoping it's just that they didn't torque the head properly.

Marco's been in the US for a while now. Any idea of cost for a decent running used 2.1? I'm looking but don't have a clue on the right price. Rally can't justify nearly 3k for a new one when I have to sell this year anyway owing to ULEZ expansion.

Simon might have one too, worth a call. He’s in Aldershot now

Thanks for this. I've tried Simon and he doesn't have one at the moment
