The 616 motor will cost a bunch more to make much less HP and torque than a Type 4. The Type 4 is very light and robust too. Fabricating a little sheet metal is easy.
Show me a 616 motor like this:

Here's fat performance with a 616:

Here's a 2.6L with close to 200 BHP:

You simply have so much more available for the Type 4 engine. Emory used to use Fat Performance Type 4s in their builds prior to the Polo.

Fat quoted me $11-12K for a 2.6L Type 4 with my core Type 4 engine I had in the shop. (mild street engine w 160 BHP) But they have a catalogue with all
their goodies and prices are very good.

Here's a German Type 4 builder w 230 BHP Type 4:
