Great Project! I'm very interested, especially in the trans adapter & 6 speed combination. I'm just getting started on a TDI swap into a completely different vehicle, and considering all options for transmissions.


Thanks,


Steve

Finally got this on the road and its surprisingly quick.
I think the 50lb flywheel is a big help with standing starts as we used to stall the original 3.8 gas all the time but not stalled the TDI once.
No real problems with the swap until I tried to put fuel into it at a gas station.
Took 71 cents and the fill pipe would not take anymore so on the weekend I will have to replace the 3/4" existing fill pipe with some 1 1/2".
Still have some wiring to finish including the tach but otherwise its done.
Had to give it to my daughter to get to school this week so we will see how it does in the real world.

Still needs a front bumper and cooler side rails/steps.

You just cant hide anything from Jimbote!
Yes one of the remaining little things to finish up.
Have not figured out a nice clean way to get a hose from the vent to the airbox.

Maybe use a small cone filter from a small carb instead of going to the intake? Or maybe too much oil would be pushed out the vent?

what about using a BHW valve cover ? it would point the pvc outlet toward the TIP in your application... or a BRM VC ... pvc outlet is right rear and may it be easier to tuck the hose around to your inlet.... it also has the oil fill on the timing belt end so service may be a bit easier... there is a vacuum nipple though, not really sure what that operates in the VC itself

I found hooking my PCV straight to the air box (unfiltered side) was sucking in a ton of oil vapor and my compression is good so no blowby. I will put a catch can in between to swirl it.

Yea the heavy flywheel is a must. What you have built here is almost exactly what I want to build for the wifes next ride.

The BHW valve cover looks interesting although finding one around here will be a challenge.

Would they sell the valve cover off a good engine? Looks like the car is in nice shape?
If you don't mind I think it would be the way to go.
Not a big deal if you cant make it though.
