More pics, got LOTTts more, haha.
Here's my baby, owned 30vws and it's the only one that's stuck around. Was off the road all winter due to other projects/time shortages; the usual.
dont mind the block heater cord stuck under the 16v lip
Uh oh, what's hiding in there!
1.9 aaz head
maxed fuel boost pin, fuel screw, max fuel screw, maxed lda tuning.
2.25" straight exhaust
puck clutch, feels as stiff as south bend.
solid, slightly lightened flywheel
02a from g60 corrado
cable clutch conversion (eurovan actuator, crx cable, home made bracket, this seems to be a different cable from what others used.... but works awesome).
Home made mounts.
Somewhere in the neighborhood of 140-150hp. Pulls like a mother. Does 100mph in 4th no problem.
Let me know what you think?! Been dailying it since the mk4 tdi broke the rear beam!
Was my bday wish to drive the caddy on my birthday (may 19), and it turns out I HAD TO, LOL.
Can't get enough of this thing, working on some videos of the pulls....... and the smoke.
Reppin BURNT TOAST: crsmp5
Gotta love that sliding glass, with the beads, its 1/3 way to a/c
SUGGESTIONS and OPINIONS ECT WELCOME,
thanks for looking
Curious about nnything in particular?
Intercooler is unmodified toyota MR2 (the supercharged mk1, NOT mk2 turbo)
As you can see, with a little love it fits the stock core support, and there is an oem hole near one of the outlets. I have a big clamp that holds the intercooler firmly in place.
Fits behind the stock copper rad
And clears at least my belt setup.
But my engine position is custom, so I kinda set all the tolerances
But seems to fit better than anything anything custom made for a mk1, and it's all metal intercooler, no end caps, it's tough.
Air box is stock mk2 A-chassis turbo diesel. Along with turbo inlet hose. Used factory fuel lines and moved the fuel filter against the fire wall.

When I came into possession of this truck it had 59k miles on it, 100% stock, mostly original, now has 79k, still mostly stock, or easily reversible.
Did the 020 give out or did you want the longer legs with the 02a?
Also, I had a new sachs clutch w/16v pp, and the clutch always smelled burnt, it slipped slightly at high end 3rd gear.
02a w/ puck clutch is zero slip. let go of the pedal and she locks up. it can spin the tires in the garage at idle. haha.
curious about cable clutch in mk1 with unmodified pedals?
It's easier than you think!
And better than your mildest dreams.
the k03 from the ahu (not 1.8t) is also a great turbo, although oil lines are custom on an idi.

looking for brake upgrades, coils, drop plates in near future.
Also thinking about throwing the 13" caddy steelies back on it, it didnt handle corners as well, but it was a rocket in raw acceleration.
Pulled a v6 dodge ram @ 55rpm in 5th.

1980 Diesel 4 door Rabbit L - yellow one
1981 Diesel 4 door Rabbit - tan one
One or both soon to be among the living...
Basically smoke on cold start is based on the MAX fuel screw....
If fueling is set low, it will bellow smoke for 1min, crank up the fuel screw (likes to idle like 1100rpm), and just a whisper of smoke.
Its a strange beast, but tough.
$69.99 and came with calipers /brakes ect all in good shape. And they had 8 in stock
And they have a fairly good online inventory!
Was a nice 2.5hr drive in the caddy! it's nice to be able to go 75mph without pushing it.
Pre-turbo setup, this thing could hardly hold 5th up any hills.
