      Cylinder bore wear/oil consumption would be a concern for me. Look for blue smoke when idling around and accelerating. The bores tend to egg out after high miles depending how it was treated in its...

      I get more oil out of my TDI when I extract because I also suck out the oil filter and cooler which can hold up to half a quart.

      I already told you what to do in the post you just quoted. Actually one of the first things you should do is to catch on in maintenance, do the timing belt, check the camshaft for wear, check the...

      I think MK4s make awesome beater/commuter cars because they are really rust resistant, comfortable, fun enough to drive to keep things interesting, and parts are everywhere now. A2.slo and a manual...

      What I am saying is if both cars are TDI, why not use the 02 TDI harness that's in the car now? Then you don't have to swap anything other than the engine.

      No way you are getting 400HP out of an 8V PD, at least not something you would want to drive on the street.

      There's a big difference between tuning/removing a DPF and transplanting the electronics and engine into another car. Ask malone if he does a standalone ECU for the CBEA/CJAA. The answer will likely...

      Uncharted waters. Biggest problem is there is no standalone ECU setup for them and the OE ECU is very complex and hard to remap. They are also complex engines with lots of crap on them.

      As for as...

      If both are TDI then just use the harness that's in the car now, am I missing something here?

      Looks like every exhaust valve got hit. This happens when the timing belt starts slipping and the valves start tapping pistons. One valve had enough and dropped free.

      Any deep scratches in the...

      Depends if its actually an 01 or 02 car. 02 is when they went with immo3 system and did some wiring changes. If the cluster had open door light=immo3 if it has a trunk light = immo2 00 was all immo2....

      325K mi on my beater 99.5 TDI. Body is still amazingly solid. Hopefully I can get it to 400K in the next few years. :beer:

      I would probably just do a simple valve job. Way easier than pulling the engine.

      Your will have no issues starting in the cold. If you buy quality properly winterized fuel, there will be no issues with jelling up either. I recommend using the white bottle power service to make...

      In general manual transmissioned VWs sell for MORE than autos. Its mostly due to the fact that VW had some really crappy auto transmissions in the past and the reputation still lives on.

      Looks very repairable from the pics. The crash bar wasn't touched which is what folds the frame rails over and pretty much ruins the body. Everything that is damaged looks to be bolt on stuff. Rad...

      Dirty oil means the oil is doing its job and keeping the engine clean. How oil looks means nothing without a UOA.
