I found this incomplete photographic swap for a Corrado. Should be nice if he completes it.

Not sure where to post this, hope somebody sees it here. I'm tossing around ideas for a project, and have begun to research some hosts and donors. I've found an old '80s Honda CRX in good shape with a questionable motor. Thinking of maybe an older (1Z?) swap into that for incredible FE, with great handling, etc. Also spotted a couple of Toyota MR2s that caught my attention. That would be a more expensive, higher tech car, so I'm thinking of a built ALH in that car (200WHP).

Before I go and do something stupid, I need all the info I can get. One hurdle I see is possibly having a hard time registering it and/ or getting emissions test. The title will have the have the host VIN on it, so do you just register it as a '87 CRX? (For example.) I'm in Colorado. We also have different rules for gassers/diesels as far as emissions testing. I'm sure if they see an old CRX that belches black smoke, and sounds like a semi, things will not go well.

Any swappers on here from Colorado?

this doesn't seem to lead to anything promising

GTiTDi,
Hmmm, not sure why it's not working for you. Look within this URL/page and you will find it. It downloads and opens fine for me (with Firefox), and I now have a complete factory manual! 94,752kb and 4300 pages large. I wonder if anyone else has found this link useless. Whatever - I dig the info exchange. If you want a copy, send me something to put it on and I will send it to you.

Hey,

I'm interested in converting my 1995 Golf III 2.0 from gas to diesel using as many parts as possible from a 1996 Passat glx 1.9L TDI. (I know a Jetta TDI would be easier, but they're hard to come by on a budget)

Does anyone know how much is interchangeable from the Passat TDI to my Golf - but, more specifically, what isn't interchangeable?! ...What would I have to purchase in addition to what I already have between the 2 vehicles to build myself a complete Golf TDI?

Thanks for any response - much appreciated!

Lets run down the list of the parts:
Use B4:
Engine
transmission
shifter
wiring can stay B4 but its not as good of a fit. It gets tricky when you start mixing and matching wiring, ECUs, injectors from early b4s to later mk3s as there were different glowplug wiring and different injector pop pressures.
downpipe

Mk3:
axles
use your mk3 2L a/c hoses and hvac system
intercooler and plumbing (probably easyer to use mk3)
pedal cluster
instrument cluster
airbox
fuel tank and sending unit
radiator (stay 2L gas)

Thanks! ...I wasn't so sure that B4's and mk3's were that universal, but sweet!

I originally bought a '97 GTI 2.0 for $200, but the body's in such bad shape that it's unusable - so, I bought the '95 Golf from a friend - it's got a bad transmission and clutch, but a great body - so I was gonna swap the tranny from the GTI to the Golf, then buy a new clutch pack and be done with it - but, then I found a '96 Jetta Trek Edition for $200 with a newer clutch, and spotless front and back sports seats - so I bought it...was/am about to swap everything over, but now I found a '96 Passat glx TDI, and the guys willing to sell it to me for $500 - so that's very tempting, Lol...The engine and transmission are fine, cars only got 120,000 miles on it, new turbo and clutch with about 8,000 miles on um, and a new set of snow tires...the cars got a rebuilt title, and the body's too rough to register it as is - that's why it's so cheap.

Damn, I want it - neighbors are getting pissed though, with the current 3 VW's, and I've got 2 Ford Focus' - one I flipped off the highway this winter, and the other was a parts car for the 1st, haha

Put the foci, GTI, trek's aba engine, and passat shell on craigslist and clear out some room out in the driveway and put a few dollars into your pocket for pedal cluster and instrument cluster.

You really might want to see if you can get a mk3 tdi engine and front clip wiring harness, ECU and injectors. It really will make your swap easier and much more factory like.

Yeah, I'm in the process of offing it all, Lol

I'll keep on the lookout for mk3 spec TDI bits, but it all seems pretty costly.

The money spent is well worth it from a frustration point of view. In my mind you would have to spend $300-$500 for all of the mk3 parts. The frustration adverted and the look of the final product is well worth it.
