So far, I would say that the 1.9L was easier to start. 😉How much of a difference do you notice with the engine swap, if any at all?
I was thinking of doing something similar for the linkage washers. The neoprene always gets greasy and breaks down.

The only thing better than how they look, is how they feel. As smooth on pavement at highway speed (surprise) as on ice and snow. Kind of heavy, but worth the trade off for smoother handling.
These nice wheels and almost new tires were given to me by fellow Vortexer PatLew. Thanks Patrick!
I do remember that and still hang out reminiscing. Dreams of an electric swapped first gen scirocco...
He was considering it before he found a bed topper closer to home. It is a bit of a drive.
It seems to be made of nice material. Stainless steel? It certainly hasn't rusted a bit in the past couple of years. Now it's back in service.I do remember that and still hang out reminiscing. Dreams of an electric swapped first gen scirocco...
Anyway. I whipped that up because it was easier that finding the original bracket. It worked really well though if not a bit odd having the fuel filter mounted next to the radiator.
An impressive improvement in power. This engine now has seemingly more hill climbing power than the 1.9D, at least the way I had it tuned. Of course, I never let Fast tune it for me.Should be a fun test drive today.
Got the lda turned to max fun
