      I'm looking for some opinions. My life is just too busy to take on a project, I don't have the room, nor do I have the complete know how, and the required tools for the job. I bought a mk1 manual 1.6l diesel for my wife and she is super happy with it, but it's lacking power. So what I want is to yank that 1.6l out for a 1.9l TDI in it.
      Sooo the question is.... Who would you guys recommend in Toronto/GTA to do a motor swap? What shop do you guys think would take on the job? It would have to be clean, propper, no corners cut, experienced job. My wife would like to take this car to shows, so the job needs to be perfect.

      I take it this an individual you're recommending?
      Great, I'm partly inclined to that option.

      Yup. I think I got the username wrong. B3VW Hasan.

      He's been buying, selling and swapping diesels for a while.

      I dealt with him a time or two IIRC. And he's been around the forums buying and selling for a long time as well. Check the Canadian parts classifieds, he's got a few posts high up.

      Thanks for the info. I've contacted Hasan, and he seams to be an alright dude with plenty of knowledge. He'll be swapping the AAZ motor in and pulling the 1.6 l out in near future. I'll let you all know how it turns out at the end.

      Here's the car receiving the makeover. Many of you may know it
