      Alright I have a 1990 cabriolet no motor no trans in it but the harness and axels are still on the car just no motor or trans..
      When I bought this car the seller had a 2.0 in it.
      I have a 2.0 motor that came out of a 1995 Jetta automatic and gave me a box full of harness and other things
      And I have a tranny from a mk2 Jetta 020 5speed
      To do this swap can use as much help as possible my question is which fly wheel n clutch can I use the 1.8 or 2.0 fly wheel n clutch and has any one in north jersey done this and can help me out
      Ohhhhh put some sand in it !!!!!!

      Use the 2.0 clutch and flywheel. I've got an A2 020 in my '98, and I'm using all the 2.0 stuff. The only issue is wiring the switch for the reverse lights, which is very easy to adapt.

      If the PO already had a running ABA in the car, then the harnesses, ECU, etc in the car should all be ABA already, making this a direct bolt-in deal. It does beg the question though...what happened to the engine/trans that was in it before?

      Where in North NJ are you? I've got a shop on the border of Morris Plains/Parsippany.
