      Wiring I really can't help with since I used the whole MKIV harness. It was all plug and start after that. For me that was the easiest way, but I had the whole donor car. Sounds like that engine is going to put down some really good power .

      Ahh I see. The motor came with the mk4 ecu and from that I can see most of(if not all) of the wireing harness. But I heard that with a ce2 car (which I BELIEVE I have) its only a few wires and done. But still trying to sort all of that out

      *any info on this would be very helpful and appreciated

      I haven't really had the time in the past week or so to get anything done to the mk2 because of work and school. But was able to spend some time on it today with Bryan (Bonestockmk1). I figured out a while ago that my SPA bottom mount manifold wasn't gonna work with this swap because of the mk2 rear mount in the way so I bought a log style mani from someone on here. I was finally able to mount that up today. as well as get the trans off and the motor on the stand.


      Got to start on stripping down the motor.


      Unfortunatly when I took of the valve cover we found out that my cam and one of the lifters were just completely done

      Yeah, ill need to be figuring all that out shortly. But in reality, ill probably stick with a stock cam and lifter to save a little money and spend it elsewhere on the car.

      I know its been a while since ive last updated this thread, in reality, its been a while since ive touched the MK2. Unfortunatly I have been swamped with school work, but the semester ends soon so I will have a few weeks of constant work time.
      Today Bryan and Stefan (the guy who will eventually be painting this) came over and got some bay and interior work done.
      Dry Ice helped get all of the sound deadening out.


      and a little work on the bay.

      Just seeing if anyone else has done it an easier way. I tried scraping it off, aswell as trying to freeze it with the dry ice like I did with the sound deadening. Neither worked well at all.

      This, I used a heat gun and scraper/wire brushes to get the bulk of it off. Then used a rag with kerosene on it to clean up the rest of the mess.
