TDI(s): 2004 Golf
Default Engine + manual swap - need mechanic near PDX

Hi.

A couple of months back I bought a roller 2004 Golf TDI with a blown engine and automatic trans for cheap. I already have a built and ready engine plus 5-speed manual gearbox from my 2005 Golf. My plan was to wait until Spring and do the swap and conversion. Instead I have a broken right hand and wrist and need to move soon.

Does anyone know somewhere within towing distance of Portland, Oregon who can do this swap? I hate to just hire this out but I can't change that.

Cheers,
Red

I would be interested, done several auto to manual swaps.
Unfortunately I'm most likely to far from you. I live in Poulsbo Wa.
I know the mk4 quite well.
Try getting in touch with Cascade German see if They can recommend someone. Maybe Member Old Poopie.
Good luck.
Robert

Thanks! I'll send them a note right away. I do consider Poulsbo to be within towing distance, but let me see if I can find a local outfit first. Thanks for making me aware of you. I may very well come knocking.

I have done a lot of business with Aaron and Boys at Cascade German over the last ten years. I have nothing but good things to say about them.

I like the Mk4 Tdi, and try to keep as many alive as I can.

I service a dozen Vw diesels, from a Mk 1 caddy to an 05 Pd.

Let me know if I can help.

I have gotten a lot of practice with Vw wiring diagrams.

I couldn't keep them all running without the Tdi club.
Thank you Tdi club!

Robert

If your manual tranny is from a gasser the ratios are completely wrong for a TDI and will make a miserable driving experience.

Yup, I know. The new gearbox is from another 2004 TDI.
