My wife hates when I read posts like this. It makes me want to bring my 71 super up and get it running. She hates anything older then the 90's
I do hope you realize the amount of cutting and reworking of the engine compartment that is going to be required to make that vr fit. Heck an aba swap won't fit back there without modifications to the firewall and gas tank. I'm not discouraging you I'm just saying I hope you are prepared to overcome the issues that are going to come up. This isn't going to be anything remotely close to a 4 banger counterflow swap in terms of the installation.
well i' not gonna rain on any parades here but as a guy who kinda has a grip on this kinda s--t
i' have painted two full blown cars,rebuilt 2 motors,run a business daily and even had time to f--k with mu hot rod and blast it out for a ride...
dude you need to light a fire under your a-- and get some s--t done!!!
seriously....not everything involves money just good old fashion hard work,gettin down and dirty and cleaning!!!
just sayin bro!!!!
...in one week end dude you can have the motor pulled,freshened up and re installed with a new clutch,throw out and a disc...clean all the terminals and bs and be done with it...no sense doinf a swap on a van that has more rust issues than mech issues...dude get the priorities in order brother.
When did you become so sensitive?
I just looked back to see what might be bashing and could not find it. Sure most of us dont really pull punches (you know I don't) and tell it like it is, but I think you are missing the point being made. Folks here want to see this project done. You are getting real world advice from folks that have pulled a bunny out of a hat before. It aint magic, its just plain jane planning, and hard work that leads to reaching the ultimate goal.
This aint the mk3 forum where folks just bash to bash. Take this as advice, constructive criticism or just plane advice and motivation before you think its bashing.
Oh and if it will help IOU 1.5 bro hugs.
cut the guy some slack guys.....his wife is on the brink of having baby #2, while having an almost 2 year old running around.......plus a full time job, plus turning wrenches at night in the driveway, then, after all that's done, he can work on this rustbomb...
is it done now carlos?
