      Yeah I been looking around online and there's a lot of engine codes for that car haha. It looks like its a 100hp engine or 105hp engine according to an article I read on the 88 jetta base & GL models.
      Also while your looking around try and find the manufacturing stamp on the car, im wondering if it was assembled in Germany or Mexico- things seem to point to the German assembled ones being better

      just got back... it was too dark and grimy to see it tonight. im going down there tomorrow with a couple of tools to move the coolant lines out of the way and a bottle of carb cleaner!! haha
      well as a matter of fact i just found out as im writing this that unfortunately it was made in mexico
      its got 3ME stamped on the head and i guess that means it was made in mexico...
      it honestly shouldnt be discouraging tho. vw have been made in mexico for a LONG time [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Here is a post from my engine question thread about this swap-
      Quote, originally posted by 531sb2 »
      Strange, looks like it may not be the original engine. It's got the OG CPR mounting plate. Best idea is to scrape the crud off & check the engine code. JH, JN, GX or MZ is low compression. HT, RD PF, or RV is high compression.

      Hopefully its a high compression engine, I have a feeling it is otherwise i dont think it would have that knock sensor on it hehe.

      Yeah it was nice to meet you too Tyler.
      I'm glad I was able to change your opinion of TDIs they have some serious potential in the power department and you can't beat the fuel economy either. I still manged to get 718 miles out of the my last tank with the mods I have and that wasn't all highway miles either. There was 80% highway and 20% city driving and a few spirited hard acceleration runs too.
      Can't beat that. TDI all the way.
      Can't wait to see the progression of your car too. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      I see a photo op in the future.

      Met up with 3L3M3NT again and this time we snapped a few pics of our rides together after giving them both a bath [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      3L3M3NT's car still has its winter rims on it, the new summer ones look badass so we are going to have to take more pics once they are on.

      Looks good. All nice and shiny.
      I'd have to say out of all the pictures that the 1st one is my favorite [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      It's so hard not to throw on the summer wheels, but I definitely need the fenders rolled first.

      Thanks. They are Helix OEM HID Reps. Big improvement over the stock headlights.
      Yep, that would be a hitch on there. lol I used my car do tow my race quad to the local races and a few other things. A TDI is a perfect tow vehicle, gotta love the torque this thing has [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
