Started on phase 1 of the build today. Trying to learn from my mistakes and take my time for once. Originally the plan was to do a build the TDI up but after a lot of research I found it will never reach the numbers I want. To even get 200hp out of an ALH I'd have to spend ALOT of money. I realize the torque would be well above that but after my little mishap at H2O this year I recon its time for a a big change. The TDI is out VR going in. I'll being doing bits here and there through out the winter. Still doing my research on what I'll be doing to the VR. Gotta do some brain storming with the guys over at HS Tuning. Plenty of non motor stuff happening too.
Wish me luck.
Tomorrow planning on pulling the dash and removing the harness.

i like the TDI idea
Floss Filthy x Team Big Shark x Gengstout x VIP Modular
I am the east coast dealer for VIP MODULAR Wheels, PM me with all wheel questions pricing, powder coating, chroming, polishing and any other type of finish your little hearts can come up with.
....smoke = lost power....
OP is correct, a built TDI is wicked expensive.....there are a few builds going on right now that will be breaking the 300hp barrier w/o n2o....but they are few and far between.....its much easier to take a VR, throw a headgasket spacer in, a big turbo on and make 400hp....
Taking a break from pulling the harness. Never realized how many wires are actually in these cars.
p.s. - just read that you were planning on pulling the dash...you really should not need to do that for a swap....unless you planning on going crazy and tucking wires and such while your in there....and actually unless your shaving the rain tray there is still not much use in pulling the dash
