Life got in the way and I have to let this project go. Engine currently installed in a 2006 Jetta that I converted to AWD with a complete R32 drivetrain with 60k miles. Can hear engine run, located in Cincinnati. I own Dubwerx and am willing to help deliver within reason in the midwest. Willing to sell the entire car but figure most will be interested in the engine. It's been sitting for several years but I keep the car inside on a battery tender and start it up every couple months. It's smooth, quiet, no knocking, and no smoke. Killer engine for your R32 or a swap for another car. Asking $12,900 for the complete engine and turbo kit or $14,900 for the complete car with Ohlins coil overs and a bunch of other stuff. I'm also willing to part out the car for the AWD swap, just the engine, just the turbo kit, etc. Details below, best way to contact me is email, [email protected].

Feel free to shoot me lowball offers, I promise I won't get me feelings hurt. I'm also down to part it out if I could get the long block, trans/AWD, shell, or turbo kit sold.
