^^^^^^^^^^^^ X2.

I like a nice boost gauge, engine revving, video session as much as the next guy, but add that to rowing through the gears and the wind in your hair and wow! Then you really have something.

Getting it running and all the bits working is a fun place to be. Congrats! Now consummate the deal and film it... Drive it down the road .

I'm officially impressed! Has some nice pickup and go. Doesn't seem to noisy in the cabin. Looks like you've pulled it off and have a great rig there!

If you get a scangauge and plug it into the obd port it'll give you rpms, and engine temp, and fuel economy and lots more. Nice to have verification that all the Dakota's gauges are really happy and actually doing what they say they're doing.

Thanks again for sharing, too cool!

Edit: I only made it to 2:16 in the video. Did I miss anything?

Nice swap! Can you share details on what you did for engine mounts? What starter is used? Is the AC pump the only accessory moved?

I modified the stock dakota engine mounts, the starter VW Passat TDI 2004-2005,Part # 068-911-024-HX, yes the tdi a/c compressor didn't fit, and i wanted to use the dakota one anyway, but im using the tdi alternator and p/s pump and there working much better than the dodge ones. i just barely panted it and the only things i need to get working are the tach and cruise control. does anyone know if the turbo return line fitting on an alh motor with work on the 1z block with the banjo bolt

Can you post a picture of the area you think where the oil is coming from?

Could oil be pudding on the backside of the head causing an oil leak via valve cover gasket?

Am I seeing RTV squeezing out around where the filter head meets the block? The gasket in this location doesn't need RTV and needs to be replaced every time. Not saying this is your issue just an observation. Other common leak locations on your motor would be the ccv tube where it mates with the block. Very common for the tube to deform and/or the oring to get hard and leak.
