I am gonna clean out my VW stuff. I know I will miss some stuff. But, I have a complete ALH, ECU w/ jfettig tune, 520 race nozzles, head studs, wiring harness, Coty built adapter to NV3550 trans, heavier flywheel installed, BV43A turbo, timing belt done 36k ago, donor ALH, another ALH head, BHW lower end, BHW balance shaft delete(new in box), and more parts for the ALH/BHW conversion, a handful of oil filters, and many more items. I will sell off the parts too. Just let me know what you are in need of. PM me your number and I will send you a pic of what I have.

This winter I swapped the VW out and installed a VM Motori 2.8L CRD which suits my driving style better. Nothing wrong with the ALH. We put 10K on it last year, even drove the 40 out to the Black Hills. I have an under drive on the back of the NV3550 that I was not happy with and we wanted an automatic to smooth out the ride on trails. So we did the swap and got the factory auto trans.(Just some background on why we changed)

Not trying to turn the chat page into a sale page, just wanted to let the more local guys know.

welp... the Sportwagen has been sitting in Duluth now for going on 4 months waiting for a new DEF tank - apparently there are 0 being manufactured and very few sitting in boneyards here in the US. So we bought it ($900 for a tank) Should be getting the car back in a couple weeks. BTW: Insurance will pay for the majority of the fix (estimated @ 6K) ::Note to self - instal locking adBlue cap)

Couldn't find a partout here in MN? There was a 12 (iirc) being parted out in the citys...
Why the locking blue cap? I feel like i missed something or some missing information?

someone accidentally added diesel additive to the DEF tank 😳😳😳 rather expensive misunderstanding. And apparently the ‘15 Sportwagen tanks are in very short supply.

I'm moving so I have a few things that could go if anyone is interested.

Mk4 manual trans axles (could be rebuilt, but work, and no tears).
Still have a mk4 5th gear set currently.
Mk4 clutch (141k on it).
OEM beetle bra for the front bumper (used for like a week).

Not really wanting to ship currently, but could look into it. If you wanna pay me what its worth to you thats cool, otherwise you can just have it🙂. I would like to get 40$ for the bra tho.

I can meet in Dalbo or Bloomington. Maybe in between depending how things workout.
