ive just got my gsi out 1st time since november, ive fitted a new engine as my other one went bang. when i first start it on a morning its ok but when ive drove it for a bit it and turn it off, then turn it on again it struggles to turn over as if the battery was flat then it just fires up. Its running mint with no management light so any ideas, it gets worse the more you drive it.

You want the battery to be matched to the alternator, or one will die.
Don't believe these idiots who put a much bigger battery on their car.
