Hello everyone..... Some of you may remember that I totaled the black 03 Jetta in a freak November sleet storm in 2010..... There were initial plans to swap the built ALH into my 04 Jetta and sell the BEW motor..... Some people said I should leave the 04 alone and just find a good donor car..... so i did

I happened to find the perfect donor car locally..... On Craigslist I found a 2000 GLXVR6 for sale with a destroyed motor 40 minutes from my house..... it was a 17 year old high school kid selling it and he wanted 2K for it.....

I took one look at it and knew this was my donor car.... fully loaded with heated power leather, wood grain trim, sunroof, upgraded stereo, climatronic etc etc. It has a brand new radiator, new front end parts, H&R springs, Koni shocks/struts. The body was in pretty good shape (eventually will need a paint job) and the leather was mint... even the drivers seat was in very good shape for being a 12 year old car.

I told the kid I'd give him cash and have it out of there the next day... he accepted, title was clean, and now I have a nicer car than I had before. It's all registered and insured and ready to go.

My good friend Jason (TDIJetta99) is damn near finished with the swap.... the car runs great so far..... just a couple more things to swap out and I'll have a driver!

The only performance part that got destroyed was the FMIC..... we are gonna hook up a stock side mount for now just so I can drive the damn thing... I'll get a BIG FMIC when the weather gets warmer.

I've got black projector headlights with LED strip, LED tails, LED side markers, LED interior lights, LED license plate lights, XM radio, mp3, gps, and I've been looking at some nice 17" rims for it.

Here is the totaled car about to go to the shop.





and yes, this is a turbo diesel chevy blazer!

I will have some more pics of the black car totally stripped about to go to the scrap yard.... some pics of the GLX will be up soon too.

I am also considering a GTB2260VK on a B5.5 Passat TDI exhaust manifold.

Awesome that the swap in to the GLX is getting buttoned up. That silver GLX at the shop is in good shape. Should be a nice ride once the TDI is in there. Nice work Jay!

Dang, seeing that stripped shell really hit me. Joe was kind enough to let me take that car for a spin at one of Jason's first gtg's in '07. At the time Joe was RC3 and I was stock. I was promptly addicted to TDI's as soon as I rolled in to the pedal. haha. Thanks for infecting me with the tdi modding bug.

Did you have to remove the entire body harness on the tdi or is the gasser glx body harness compatible with the tdi engine harness?

I think Jason got like $266 from the scrap yard or something like that but there were tons of other crap inside the shell... a HEAVY furnace, rear end from another car, an old cast iron bath tub, an old fence, plus all kinds of other metals/garbage....

I'd think you probably wouldn't get more than $100 for the shell alone. You have to fill it with all you can.

Deal is in the works as we speak for a GTB2260VK turbo mounted on a cast manifold with block off plate welded from Rub87...

Jason, you're gonna have to make me a 3" stainless DP!! WHAT!

EDIT: Turbo is paid for and in the mail!

Default Update!

The 2000 GLX TDI swap is 99% complete... Here are a few crappy pics of what the car looks like (taken with my crappy cell phone camera)

The car needs a serious detailing.... All the new lights are installed but the new rims are still in the shed, next to the gtb2260vk.
