      ToddI am almost done collecting the parts for my A2 x-flow turbo setup. I will be using a t3/t4 also, what is your expected WHP goal? where in Jersey are you located? I would love to see this car in person. also who made the intake manifold for you? it is sweet!!! congrats on your project [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      Im in central jersey, the local machine sop made teh intake,and im really not sure on the hp. But its gonna be some where in the range of high 200s on the stock block.
      sweet that is right around the area that i am shooting for (250+ on stock internals)
      I see a few people have used 1800vwparts. 1300 bucks is not bad for a low mileage engine and all the needed to complete the swap (mine came with an autothority chip, i didn't know that they have AMS chip now). Tom really knows this swap He was the one that did mine for me.
      As for all A2 X-flows being slow They definitely aren't the fastest things on the street, but coming for a 1.8 8v, it definitely is more of a fun car to drive. (turbo..coming soon will take car of the rest )

      I am picking up a 94 Jetta this weekend for my donor car. 600 bucks. So I couldn't pass it up. Hope to do the swap in May sometime.

      Not sure, a buddy of mine that is a VW tech found it in a yard. The battery is disconnected so he couldn't see the mileage. But he looked at in and said nothing was leaking and everything looked pretty good. So we are going to pull it and check the bearings and what not. So hopefully it is all good, I am just happy to have found a complete car so I don't have to part together harnesses, ecu, etc.

      I called Tom today and for my 86 GTi to be converted to a 2.0 the kit is gonna run me 1400 cuz I don't have a central electric car, I think that is a great deal still... My friends seem to think that is a rip off if they are such bargain hunters how come they have not given me any other suggestions? Exactly my point.. they think I can just buy a farkin' 2.0 an ecu and a harness and just throw it into an 86 sorry NOPE doesn't work that way.. sorry to vent but I just wanted to give a thumbs up to Tom and 1800vwparts for making it easy to do this swap =D I should be heading to New York sometime in the near future to pick up my swap kit!

      Anyone do this swap in a Rabbit with out the power steering pump, if so how?
      I want to use as much A3 components as possible like A3 alternator with non AC bracket, A3 water pump and pulley because this is what i got right now.
      What do I do with the power steering pump and pulley? Can I just remove and use a shorter belt?

      I used all rabbit stuff, including the alt (the A/C one). I just played with pulleys and belts till I found a setup that worked. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      I know that method will work, but i was hoping to use the A3 stuff instead.. but not sure how to get around the non power steering issue

      I have a friend that put a x-flow into an 86 GTi and used the a3 alt. but left off the power steering and a/c. I think it was just a matter of finding the shorter belt. With mine I'm using an alt. from a 16v with my original pulleys on the crank and water pump and had to play with belts a little until I found one that fit right. I think it'll still go through some revisions.
      Good luck,
      Jason
      Lately I have been testing "tip-in events". Just the tip-in. Just to see how it feels. Response time is typically on the order of 2-3 seconds. Sometimes the injection timing is a little off...

      How much taller is the OBDII throttle body because I still haven't put the motor in my rabbit yet and i'm worried about clearance issues...

      The OBDII tb will almost clear under the hood of a rabbit. That's what I have in mine and I cut a small hole in my hood but after getting it all together I think I only needed to cut out the hood supports that are a part of the bottom of the hood. I haven't had any problems but if you use rubber motor mounts the tb might knock on the hood under acceleration.

      Cutting the hood?
      Can anyone else confirm this because the most I would cut is the hood support and not the hood...

      Like I said. After getting it all together and looking at it I don't think I needed to clearance the hood but if the engine twists much the tb will definatley hit the hood if it doesn't already rub against it. I think I'm going to get a new hood when I repaint my car and just massage it with a hammer instead of cutting it if I need more clearance. Also I've heard you can flip the tb over to get more room but I couldn't figure out how to do it. Maybe someone else is smarter than me(not too hard )
      Good luck,

      I bumped it because it seems like some people might be needing it, enjoy!

    23. 10-07-2002 06:15 PM #73
      bump because i did! so to ditch my ac do i need a non ac bracket as well as alt belt ps belt and pulley?

    24. 10-08-2002 12:45 AM #74
      you need the A3 Poer steering bracket, alternator bracket, and I think you might need the pump too. I run 2 belts- a PS belt and a 6 rib that runs the Water pump, alt,

    25. 10-08-2002 03:18 AM #75
      When I called Tom a while ago, he said he was running completely A2 accessories. I think- it was a while ago. Anyways, that is what I am planning on doing on my 1992 GTI 8v. Hopefully it will work!
