might be wrong though.

Might have been better the other way around as the golf probably had more go than the transporter.

Ha ha well had it been an original transporter engine ...but this was tuned and tweaked and could shift itself.
Had a matching trailer for it too

mind i had a transporter with a passat digifant engine 1800cc and super chipped . often at malvern , i sold adapt a bug plates for putting gti engines into beetles etc .
it was nicer to drive though without the demount . usually had a canopie on the back.
