    Thread: Feeler: 1980 Rabbit Diesel 1.8T

    1. 01-06-2012 09:11 PM #1
      Have a 1980 Rabbit. Not really driving it much. Take it out for a spin every few weeks, but other wise is sitting there. Basically did the swap when was out of work, got a job right before finishing and am working too many hours to enjoy.

      Have driven it less than 2K miles in last two years since swap was done.

      Specs:
      1.8T ~65K. Timing belt, tensioner, water-pump, thermostat done at swap - have about 2K miles
      Motor is stock, but this thing hauls ass as is. ECU is immo defeated, but not chipped.
      O2J ~49K. New VR6 clutch at time of swap

      Recaro Trophies in front, driver's bolster is ripped.

      Dash from 85 rabbit convertible

      Cluster from mkIII that shows ~112K. Have the mkIV cluster also.

      Everything works. New carpet kit installed just before swap, new windshield installed just before swap. 195/50/15's in great condition, about 5K miles on them.

      Front has 16v Scirocco brakes, have rear disk conversion, not installed. Rear sway, front upper and lower stress bars, custom made front brace/subframe to handle extra power. Race springs, front Boge inserts with 5K miles on them (these were great with old 16v, but feel a little soft with 1.8T)

      Poly motor mounts / inserts

      Exhaust (I think its Borla, but not 100% sure)

      Clean headliner, some extra parts.

      Dash panel needs to be put in (where the radio and heater / fan controls mount) heater works, but side ducts not currently installed.

      I put this together and TST did the wiring / inter-cooler mount.

      I totaled my daily, so may be interested in some trades +/- cash.

      set a sale price and maybe some pictures?

      Some pics...















      Before 1.8T - was a 2.0l 16v with 1.8head euro cam, header, etc.





      BTW...i still have the mk1 16v header available for sale if anyone wants...it's the one meant to be used with a cat (which i am told are now harder to find)

      diesels made before 1998 dont require smog so he swapped out the old diesel engine and put in the 1.8t and kept it titled as a diesel to avoid all the smog bs
