I live in Connecticut, but I have no problem hopping in the car, and driving a couple thousand miles for a good deal.

From the looks of it - if I want an mk3 specific build, I'm gonna need to save up - cuz even totaled TDI Jetta's are selling for at least 2 grand, and new TDI engines are unjustifiably expensive.

If you know of, or come across any really inexpensive kits/packages - please share!

Realistically, I can't drop much more than $500 at the min. - might be able to up that to a few grand over the next year, and in 2 or 3 yrs - I'll be an Engineer, and buy whatever I want - but, what will VW churn out by then?!...maybe a new R32, with a Touareg TDI, matched to a 6 speed manual...mmm, Lol
you should PM my buddy Burpod about his 98 Jetta TDI, he wants to do an A2 tdi swap with an 88 GLI and knows he needs a B4 donor to have an easy time...maybe you guys could figure something out...only kicker is the Jetta is actually in decent shape considering most are rotted to oblivion
