The History.
I purchased this Jetta used in 2005. It was used for my wifes employment since she was a merchandiser and traveled from store to store. This saved us money based on the fuel mileage it obtained and the fact that we could also use it as a tax write off.
Late in 2009 an injector stuck open and melted a piston.Since I am a diesel mechanic I decided to rebuild the engine. After checking prices on OEM parts and knowing that they are inferior parts I decided to upgrade anywhere I could. The following is a synopsis of the rebuild and the parts used.
The block was hot tanked, bored and honed 5mm (0.020)oversized.{$310.00}. Installed Nural HD +5mm pistons along with IE rods, ARP hardware,{$1030.00}. Kolbenschmidt std rod and
main bearings.{$115.00}
The original flywheel was replaced with a Corrado single mass flywheel and a Sachs VR6 clutch kit {$360.00}.
The cylinder head was cleaned, resurfaced .005",pressure tested. Complete valve job with new intake, exhaust valves, and new valve guides.{$540.00}.
Installed 100,000 mile timing belt kit including metal impeller water pump. {$380.00}.
Metalnerd Timing belt installation tools.{$230.00}.
Turbo was sent out to have rotating parts balanced and rebuilt with new bearings and seals.{$190.00}.
Injectors were rebuilt at the time using Bosio Sprint 520 (non DLC) 110 HP nozzles.{$400.00}
(NOTE) Had injectors rebuilt a 2nd time recently (see above) using upgraded DLC nozzles.
Misc. parts {$380.00}
VCDS Vagcom{$300.00}
Total $4235.00 in parts for engine rebuild including timing tools and VCDS.
60,000 miles since rebuild. Runs excellent. Fun to drive!
Current issues with the car are abs and airbag lights on.See Below.

35-00 - -
1 Fault Found:
01218 - Side Airbag Igniter; Passenger Side (N200)

Car is mechanically turnkey. Cosmetically it can use some body work and a paint job.Clear coat peeling. Interior can use a refresh. No rust. Speakers need replacing. Same with ant. Use it for an everyday driver, or mod it out. Sleeper???
Asking $2,400.00 which includes VCDS, Timing tools and Key programming software.
