    Non-tdi 1.6L fuel pump tuning

    The '81 rabbit pickup I purchased is smoking blue at all rpms and even after the motor has warmed up. The seller claimed the fuel pump needed to be tuned, yet the vehicle came with refurbished head from the second to last previous owner. Symptom of a bad head (imo) or could it actually be...

    Potential sale of all my vehicles and project

    Depending on the circumstances all my vehicles and mk2 ALH project may be up for grabs. I am set on leaving the country in the upcoming month and most likely I will not return. If not, my current MK2 Jetta project with ALH will be up for grabs. There will also be a ton of parts up sold along...

    Eye rate this caddy

    Found this one a few states over and the desperation to own one is outweighing my ability to make a sound judgement. It is currently not in running condition due to some issue with the cis. However it does come with everything needed to get it going (as they all say). There is a 4 inch hole on...

    The cost effective way to raise a mk2 jetta

    I'd like to get some input on raising a mk2 jetta. Currently working on swapping in an alh and I will remove the front subframe and control arms to refurbish them. So now is as good a time to tackle this. My original plan was to purchase an air ride kit but I have other projects and funds must...

    If not a diesel, then what would you daily drive...

    My desire to own a diesel swapped MK2 began at the age of 19 but the right car never fell my way. I always kept the gassers close to their stock form to the best of my abilities. However if diesel MK2's were not an option today, indeed it was T1 Touaregs which won my heart when they made a...

    State of Washington goes woke

    Woke for the sake of capitalist gains... There is a proposal to remove all new/used ICE vehicles off the street. Exceptions to the ban are motorcycles and vehicles over 10,000 lbs. Hope this never happens and the virus is contained. You have a mere 8 yr 6 months to enjoy your ICE vehicles...

    Can it be done... R32 to PD150 ARL T'reg swap

    Since the R32 motor in my t'reg was always meant for a swap into a MK2 gti, how complicated a swap would it be to fit in a PD150 into the t'reg? 🤓

    Wiring Gurus... Need help accessing PD swap

    I searched and came up with little proof on how to accomplish this swap- midway into planning an mk2 (1.6d ce2) ALH swap, I receive a decent offer for a PD150 ARL. It's a '03 seat Leon motor so I am having doubts on my ability to mate the euro harness/ecu/immo/cluster that is coming along to an...

    All systems go and then this

    Ready to drop the motor and trans out of the Jetta until I found a stripped 8mm triple x axle bolt staring me head-on. The socket/drive wouldn't even go in. Every other bolt on both axles came out with ease but this one and the previous owner must've got into it. What is the best method to...

    Rebuild kits for ALH

    It's been some time since I restored a motor from the bottom up. Last time it was working on a VR6 and I recall purchasing a rebuild kit with a combination of bolts, gaskets, piston rings, and bearings. While it was very complete for the price, I don't know how that motor faired over the years...

    Lifespan of performance piston rings and bearings

    Resold a set of ARP headbolts because I was advised would not seal an un-resurfaced head properly. With that same thought process, would using performance gapless piston rings or racing main bearings with oem internals be a problem in longevity. I'm questioning the durability one would find from...
