      I'm a little noob when it comes to 16v motors. I have a full digi2 setup that was running from an 89 jetta. I plan on putting that in an 88 cabriolet. Only worry is the wiring. Not sure what fuse panel to use. Splice in the engine harness from the jetta or what. Any wiring help would be amazing.

      You might want to think about getting a Digi 2 harness from a Cabriolet and modifying that for the 16v.
      You could also splice the Digi 2 harness to the Cabby's fuse box, which isn't too hard. I haven't done it but there aren't that many wires.

      Just wondering if anyone knew which wires need to be sliced into the cabby's fuse panel?

      What month was the 89 built? DO you know the last 6 of the VIN?
      Easier question: was it CE2? Did it have a single plug cluster?

      ISV is on the lower intake manifold, mounted on the driver's side with a bracket. has a 3-pin connector going to it, and two lines connected to it. clean it with carb cleaner, dry it, and reinstall.

      for 020 transmission information check out http://cars.vwsport.com/gears/index.html
      it has gear ratios (1-5 and ring and pinion), information on SMS (self machining syndrome), speed / RPM calculator, excel spreadsheet download to calculate speeds (thanks Ron P), speedometer gear information and part numbers, and lots of other useful information.

      k here is the deal.. .i have a 87 scirocco 16v and the idle was bouncing like crazy... i did a full tune up and it ran good .. then the idles bounced like crazy so i adjusted my distributor and it idled perfect...
      now the problem i put my intake boot back on and all the vaccum lines and i noticed the clip that goes into thefront of the fuel distributor was gone! i started it up it ran .. but would really bog out... i need to know were that line runs so i can track it down i dont know were it went i looked all over!
      Thanks Guys,

      o.k. so i did an 8v 1986 conversion to a 16v 2L with 1987 scirocco engine harness and '86 body harness.....that was three years ago and i didn't document the event. i failed to mention that the 8v had dealer cruise control, that worked! now i have an '86 no cruise, and i'm stuck on what to do..... the fuel pump is not getting power, which means the fuse panel is not 'congruint' to the engine harness set-up i have. i have a harness that runs '78 rabbit injection with a saab distributer, the '86 engine harness with some bad grounds and the "mechanical fuel distributer" to run the CIS injection that came with the car, also running part of the knock sensor harness, or changing the fuse panel to the previously mentioned 16v set-up(in avatar)......anyone in florida that enjoys a beer and is a saturday trip from orlando that could personally help out, would be much appreciated!!!!

      I have a 1.8L 16V 88 GTI. Just had the whole upper redone. Now when driving the oil temp light comes on (239F) and the water temp goes to the 3/4 mark. It never went that high before. Also was running 20-50 oil before. I think he put in 10-30. Any thing I should start to look at?

      Ive been hearing alot about the 8v 2.0 to a 16v head, i have a MKIV jetta
      i can only find 16v heads up to MKIIIs and i heard they're useless
      i just want to know if anyone has tried to do this conversion with my engine or should i just say hell with it, port it and throw a turbo on?

      the motor you are hearing about is the ABF. it takes an 2.0L 8v "ABA" bottom end and mates it to a 16v head. Bahn Brenner sells a kit to make all the pulleys work. it's an awesome block/head combination and can throw down some impressive numbers.
      but, I've never seen someone attempt to put that into a mkIV...it's typically done in mk1/mk2 cars.

      you need your mk1 mounts , they bolt in the same spots as a 1.8 block , the block is about1/2 inch taller , you might need to do some mods to your exaust , other than that i had no trouble putting one in my rabbit truck

      can someone tell me if my car is an 8v or 16v? ha

      96 Passat GLS? It's an 8v.
      It's also not a Wolfsburg Edition. It just has those side badges to fill the hole where the European turn signal goes, they mean nothing.

      right on, thanks dude so that would be ABA then correct? and Mk3 jetta parts should fit into it? sorry haha just another punk ass wanting to make my dumb 2.0 have a little more kick

      Yeah, it's pretty much identical to any OBD2 ABA except the manifold has a big VW logo instead of a little logo and a "2.0" on it.
