I just found a low mileage 94 Jetta diesel engine at the j/y. Would that make for a good swap, and would it be fairly straight forward? Thanks. So far I found 1 Audi 2.o w/ 77,000 miles, for $425, but I'm still looking!

Yeah, I will probably hafta settle for the 2.0 I found, although there are a bunch of ABA's available for a lot less $.
I was just curius if the diesel sets in the engine bay like the gas jobbies....that would make a good commuter and around towner, I bet...

Diesel mounts in the same way, but requires new fuel pumps, wiring etc. Physically fitting is identical, but making it work would be alot harder.

you would loose from the 83 HP you currently have so u'd need a QTD or 2P tranny to get anywhere in a decent amount of time.
Just do the ABA its great and I get 30mpg
