Found a great deal on an full parts 1998 jetta ahu tdi a few weeks back and got in contact with the seller immediately. That being said i met up with him and got things all settled. From the information he gave me the car had an veggie oil conversion kit on it for most of the engines life. It was considered total due to an accident he had which consisted of the car being flipped onto its side. The engine was luckily not hit in the accident. It kicks over quick and runs very smooth. 215k on the engine. trans and clutch in great shape Johnstamos will be helping me with this swap since this will be my first and he could chime in if anyone has questions about the swap.
not the cleanest but who cares when its an tdi. do have engine cover for it though
the car it is going in...
The goal is to have it completed by h2o but if all things go to plan it will be done weeks prior to that. Pretty much keeping it stock for now with a mild tune.
