I have had my 91 16v GLI for about a year now and it ran fantastic until last weekend. i was on my way to pick up some parts for a vr6 swap into my corrado, and in the middle of nowhere north dakota (not hard to guess why) my front motor mount broke and my engine fell forward pressing all the weight onto the oil filter and crushing it, soon after seizing my 16v.
After 4 hours of waiting for a tow truck driver to pick me up i decided the jetta would now be the suitable companion for the new vr6.
on to info:
the car is an alpine white 1991 GLI with 195000 on the body and engine
the vr6 is a fresh rebuild that came with both subframes rack and pinion ecu wiring harness and... an auto transmission
I'm driving 9 hours this weekend to pick up an 02A 5 speed and some corrado parts and ill try to have this running as soon as i can.
I Will take all the advice i can get
on to the pics
