    Post by VR6>VTEC on Sun Nov 06, 2011 5:19 am

    Here is my new toy...
    Sold my little truck to buy this gas saver from a buddy.
    1990 mk2 VW Jetta gl 1.8L

    Washed and waxed brought the paint back out..
    In the process of removing the old tint.
    Plastidip the grill emblem.

    Future mods...
    coil overs
    Vr6 swap
    5spd swap
    Wheels

    This car is my daily driver and the vr6 swap will come really slowly. I have to get all my ducks in a row and make the swap happen in a week!

    Swap progress -0%

    parts gathered -25% roughly
    Vr6 engine from mk4 - 124k with 1k on timing chains :-)
    mk3 obd2 intake
    mk3 down pipe

    Will use the cat from my mk3 when I get a test pipe.

    Need.... mk3 front sub frame.
    Others.....

    Yea lol... the power steering leaks all out. It messed up the control arm bushing badly but I put a different control arm on at Jesse's last weekend. The car is in great shape for it's age. Motor runs good and it drives me to work everyday. Perfect for a vr6 swap. This will happen its just going to be a while before I start it. I need to get the gti fixed back up as well as the Audi.
