Car was wrecked with 204k miles. I bought it as is for the motor swap. I did drive it enough to take it through the gears and make sure there were no issues.
Complete 5 speed swap... trans, mount, axles, pedals, clutch, etc... $800 obo. I'm willing to ship.
White with tan cloth. Power windows, no sunroof. 320k miles.
Less than 5k miles on head gasket and timing belt service. OE parts, the head was checked for straightness, and timing set with VCDS.
All stock except
1. Bosio pp520's that were installed at the same time as the other work.
I need to get my car back together in the next 3 days for a road trip, and my machinist just informed me that he won't have the valve seats in time to finish the job. Looking for a complete head in good condition.

I've always wanted a white, 5 speed, 4 door, non-sunroof golf. One popped up on craigslist a month or so back "needing a motor" for less than I've sold a manual trans swap for, so I scooped it up.
The PO said he hit a rock while turning around in his yard, put a hole in the pan, and ran it...

Black with black cloth, GL with no power options

New VA inspection
Cosmetically it's a 7/10. The hood is blue, and the driver side fender is rusted from crap collecting behind the splash shield. The rest of...
I just bought a golf to use as a donor. It had symptoms of what I assume is a bad injector...
When I first started it, it had a dead miss, and whitish smoke out the tail pipe. I figured an injector was worn to the point where it was just dumping fuel non-stop.
I shut it off and talked with...
