So if you transfer all of the things from an EcoDiesel into a non-EcoDiesel is the new car an EcoDiesel?

Or, to put it another way, "what makes it an EcoDiesel?" Is it the powertrain, or is it the heritage of the shell?

It's the drivetrain. The body is just a GL jetta with gray interior.

The problem will be finding a donor in good shape, I would think.

ECOdiesel is a 1.6TD with a smaller turbo (K14 instead of K24), 8 mm pump instead of 9 mm (and no boost enrichment), newer head gasket design, catalytic converter, and the AVX code transmission (I forget what a normal 1.6TD had).

There are rust free Mk2s to be had, but it is getting tougher and tougher...

Kinda like "Jaws," which gives me an idea.

J & L - you should redub the video to use the theme from Jaws. That MPV cruising through the neighborhood was just like the shark looking for an unsuspecting victim.

That's a great idea. I actually had the jaws music in my head when I showed the video to someone last night.

It took me a while to realize Compu_85 and VeeDubTDI knew each other. Now it makes so much sense! Sorry for your loss. Hope everything works out and something good comes out of this.

Default parts for sale?

I have been looking for some parts...

I need a good dash..the turn signal /high beam (device) selector, cruise control...

Maybe some interior trim around the windows on the front?
Any chance you'll sell turbo? cylinder head + injection pump as a combo?
are the seats in good shape?






WHAT???!




too much? .... too soon? too soon?

lol



(sorry!)
just had to take a poke at you guys....trying to lighten up the mood a bit..

LOL...

If we decide to part it out, we will start another thread in the for sale section. This is not going to turn into a part-out thread.

really glad you saw the humor..
totally a jovial post in a bleak situation.


I got a odd sense of humor...so, pleased you 'got it'..




I figured i would 'take a stab' at a joke, I figured you wouldn't see that coming in under the radar!(not this soon)





If your insurance wants to talk to an ECO owner about perceived value, market selling price, or collectability...I'll be 'that guy'..
although mine is not for sale.
(so no pm me)

Just let me know if i can assist you at all with dealing with insurance..or whatever..



There are alot of good shape Mk2's around here..w-NC..cheap..

I hope you find another true ECO..
again, sorry about the '91...glad you and J weren't in it...and the kids weren't hurt either...



The video was SO riveting...and sick..

That's the smartest thing I've heard in this entire thread! Good on you!


VeeDubTDI, I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope you and your adjuster can agree on a fair value, and that the parts go to good use! The vehicle itself has had quite a following here, and has covered a great number of miles. It has had a good run; it's just a shame it had to end this way. Nobody was injured but it's a tough blow when you're so attached.
