      1985 Jetta Coupe VR-T
      09-19-2012 04:35 PM #1
      Hello all,

      My Jetta is back up for sale! Originally I bought it as a lawn ornament, and brought it back to life. The swap was done by a shop in NY that is now defunct, but the quality was top notch. Its a 1998 OBD2 swap, with 5 lug conversion, and mk3 dash. NGP did an engine rebuild, installed coilovers, full turbo setup with FMIC, and full custom exhaust and powder coated IC piping. Spent $17k, because everything was done PROPERLY! I have the receipts for the full build and can show them to anyone who is really interested.


      OK, I'll try to list everything....

      Exterior/Chasis
      -Wheels: MK3 GLX Bugattis
      -Vogtland coilovers (under 750 miles, installed at NGP)
      -5x100, stock 98 VR6 brakes, stainless steel brake lines all around
      -g60 flares up front, 8v flares in the rear
      -Stock smoothed big bumper in the rear
      -Reiger RS fiberglass front bumper
      -Audi OEM HID ballasts, in crystal clear 7' round headlights
      -Solid red tail lights
      -M3 style taillights also included
      -The color is Acura, atlantic blue pearl from the TL series around 2004
      -Shaved door pockets, stock black mk2 handles

      Engine (everything listed below has less than 2k)
      -1998 OBD2 VR/tran swap with roughly 58k original miles (port and polished head less than 2k ago)
      -T3/t4 .50 trimi (less than 2k miles)
      -42 lb greentop injectors
      -Raceware head studs
      -Custom welded/powdercoated intercooler piping, FMIC (now all are flat black)
      -Custom welded 3' stainless exhaust, Billy boat muffler. No cat
      -C2 head spacer 8.5:1 compression
      -Apex'i digital boost controller
      -Short shifter
      -Peloquin LSD
      -Spec stage 2 clutch
      -Almost new red top Optima battery
      -New coilpack
      -New external fuel pump (in-tank pump still in place)

      Interior
      -AEM wideband
      -Stewart Warner boost gauge (both of these in a-frame pillar)
      -All 4 panels, and back seat were custom stitched by A&R custom interiors, black suede with red french seams (see pics below)
      -Headliner and visors is all red suede matching the seats
      -All pillars wrapped in black suede
      -DC2 recaros in FANTASTIC shape. They're from a Japanese DC2 Integra (rid)
      -3 point race seat harnesses
      -Cabrio gauge panel
      -Electric windows work

      The bad:
      -Driver side door has a small shallow dent, about the size of a baseball. Probably can be pulled
      -Leaky sunroof (needs new seal, and to be aligned)

      I know I'm forgetting stuff and will update it. I have all receipts from NGP that will come with the car. I wish I didn't have to sell but it doesn't make sense for the car to sit in a garage when someone could have fun with it! The car should make close to 400 hp after a dyno tune

      I know how much has gone into the car, so bring on the offers, but no redic lowballs either.

      $7,000 IS THE ASKING PRICE



      Now for pics:

      As far as what..? A project is never ending

      Everything I know that is faulty is listed under "The bad". But, not much that NEEDS to be done.

      Went for a 100 mile drive today, and the car is running flawlessly! I'm gonna detail her, and post up some new pics and maybe a vid.
