Did you try to flash some US mk4 PD software into it?
That's what I am thinking as well. I am pretty sure the PD motor wasn't even invented in '98.

According to Wikipedia... There was a PD engine installed in the b5 with engine code AJM up until year 2000

Thread summary:

WTB: Unicorn Brains

Good luck - What about registration in a locale which doesn't test for emissions?

Has the car been federalized and ever permanently registered in the US?

OK, I hate leaving threads unanswered. Client really loves his car, and won't sell it. so.... we're "Federalizing" his car.

We sourced a 2004 BHW car with a shot transmission and are swapping all wiring and emissions/EGR equipment onto the Euro car.

We'll see how difficult the wiring will be, but I think we'll manage just fine, since we have the whole donor car here!

DONOR:


Bare Donor BHW Block, stripped! (FOR SALE!!!)


One pile, of many, awaiting cleaning and installation into the EURO car.

You are going to run a 1.9L engine with a 2.0L ECU?

After custom software on the ECU, and all emissions and wiring swapped, the car just got a NJ Inspection sticker. Success! Customer is ecstatic!

How much of a hassle was it to swap the wiring harness and ECU over to the 1.9?

You kept the 1.9 injectors? They played nice with the BHW ECU?

Engine remained stock. Not a huge hassle I'd say, but took us a while to work out all the bugs. ECU got tuned for us by Marin AKA "jetta ,97" drives QUICK and no codes!

shame you couldn't keep the original engine cover - wouldn't fit over the BHW EGR?

Looks really good by the way, nice work.
