This would be my first encounter with a vw engine swap. Is this swap possible? What problems will I get into and what parts do I need? thanks for your help!

Re: Anyone here put a 01 gti 1.8t in a 97 jetta? (extreme1)

I know its been done in GTIs (punkassjim is an example) I'm not sure about jettas but I don't see why they wouldn't be able to...

apparently its not an easy process though.

Re: Anyone here put a 01 gti 1.8t in a 97 jetta? (extreme1)

and since I'm pretty sure it's not been said in any of those threads (and it'll take you like 7 hours to read all of them), I should mention this:
The 1997 is OBD-II, and it needs to remain OBD-II compliant in order to be legal, pass inspections, etc. So basically, the option to make the swap easier by just using standalone engine management...yeah, that's not an option for you. Sorry. Read on. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

All righty then................ I'm not looking for an expensive headache, so I'll just skip this idea. I just want a good car and this seems like a really bad way to get one.

Then you don't want to do this swap
