Post My engine swap project  Reply with quote
So, first off, let me tell you all what my current situation is.

I have my 89 coupe that desparately needs a clutch. I also have an engine from an 86 golf that needs a clutch. Cool thing is the one from the GTI is bored out and all that jazz. SO, planning on doing the swap and putting in a new clutch at the same time.

The engine I'm putting in is CIS, so I have to bring over the intake mani and injectors. Of course I also have to do a clutch. And, while I'm at it, I'm doing a timing belt.

So, my question is, has anyone here done anything like this before and, if not, who's up for some learning?

do you have a Bentley?  if not is say get one or another book of the like.  it is pretty straight forward as far as everything goes.  just watch the torque specs on the flywheel and pressure plate.
it has been many moons sinse i did a old school clutch, but i can do a MK4 with my eyes closed  PDT_Aliboronz_01 .  stuston (aka Adam) has some good XP with this.  if you need any help when it comes down to it let us know when and where.  i will try to help out as much and the wife and kids will allow.  good luck and God bless.

How about a mk4 tiptronic clutch? Ill be needing me one of those soon too!

Appreciate the support btw. Sounds like fun for the weekend. I am hoping that you mean this coming weekend and not the one after. I'll be up in ATL then. Let me know when exactly your planning on working on it and I'll most certainly try to get up there and give you a hand.

well, i guess my most current situational question is whether or not I can just use CIS in the Jetta. It's going to be a big pain for me to get the other intake manifold ported to match the new engine. So, I guess I'm curious which would be the easier to do. Covert everything to DIGI or to CIS?

BTW, ordered all the parts I should be needing. Will be in Wednesday. If only I had a place to work other than my storage unit. ....I want to shoot myself working over there! :(
