I'm toying with the idea of throwing an ALH into my b3 wagon. There's currently a clapped out ahu in it.

I'm looking for a TL;DR version of the build threads out there. What parts are needed? What kind of custom work is needed?

96 Passat B4V, ALH engine out of a 2002 Jetta, some IE Rods and ASV Pistons. Nothing drivable yet though
Look into the b4/mk3 swaps, even the mk2 swaps. You'll need an afn (euro mk3 w/ a vent turbo) or bhw (b5.5 passat) exhaust manifold if you want to retain 3 motor mounts. I have wired the alh engine harness to the ce2 fuse block. You may be able to get away with using the b3 front cross member.

1997 Jetta TDI, 1990 Toyota LandCruiser LJ78 with ALH Swap
Here's mine: a 1991 Toyota LandCruiser Prado LJ78 with an ALH swapped in.
Nearly completed, I've put about 250km on it since getting it running. Hoping to have it back on the road in December. My first swap, its been a great learning experience.
