I am doing a similar swap (Vr6 in a Mk1 Chasis). I would recommend keeping the wiring harness, ecu, fuse box, guage cluster, and the fuel pump. It really depends on what you look to do with your swap, some people do a dash swap, 5 lug conversion, etc.What do i need to take off of the jetta , other than the engine, tranny and electrical before i sell it for parts?
Nice! my eurowise kits came today, I still haven't pulled anything out of the donor car yet though. This weekend I will start pulling things out.Kit from eurowise came today. Pulled the old 1.8 last night. Will do some cleaning under the hood this morning and then the fun begins. Will be posting pictures soon.
It would be a lie if I said I wasn't jealous, right now. I am extreamly happy for you and wish mine was already in my car!!!! I unfortunately am still collecting parts!!!BUT SHE RUNS AND DRIVES!!!!!!!!
I am happy you mentioned that lol, I have a few!I will be happy to answer any questions.
1) Are you maintaining the A/C? If so, are you wiring it to the Mk1 controls or throwing in the Mk3 controls?
2) Did you use the Eurowise Mk1 Vr6 throttle cable? if not what are you running?
3) Assuming you are using the Mk1 Heatercore, did you buy the Eurowise adapter? If not, how did you connect yours?
Not to brag, but my days would work like this:I am happy you was able to get it going so fast, makes me feel that I can meet my time line goals
I also got a custom downpipe (cost me $75 shipped!) I am looking forward to seeing more videos of this :thumbup:UPDATE:vampire:
After having the exhaust custom fitted to the stock downpipe, (yes, you do not have to spend mucho bucks for a custom header), and a few adjustments here and there, the car is 100% drivable.
A few notes:
1: Try hard to remember what it was like to drive your Mk1 with it's stock engine
2: Take car on first test drive with new VR6
3: Completely forget what your stock engine drove like because you have the biggest smile on your face when you realize what that sweet glorious sound is coming from under that hood
4: Get 5 MPG because you cannot take your foot off the floor
5: Plan on new tires soon :laugh:
6: Pat yourself on the back, you've created a monster
More videos soonumpkin:
