    Thread: OBD1 to OBD2 conversion

    1. 06-16-2008 02:12 PM #1
      I have a 96 jetta (2.0) with standard trans. It has a crunched up body. I'm thinking of dropping the whole engine-and-trans (together) into a 95 jetta body (standard). Anyhew, I want to STAY with obd2, I don't want to have OBD1. I already did a search, and read that the 1995 OBD1 ports, are the exact same as the OBD2 ports. So what would I need to do to make it OBD2? Is it possible? If I move the ECU WITH the engine, and move over a few other module, will it make it instantly obd2?

      if you take everything from your car and put it into the 95, it will be obd2. but for emissions purposes, it will probably be obd1 still.

      Do I have to pull the dash? Or do you just mean "everything under the hood"? Also, what do you mean by "for emissions standards"?

      for emission standards it will go by the year of the car, not the year of the engine.
