82 Rabbit Pickup TDI swap

Postby Kneight Ridaz » March 19th, 2014, 3:34 am

So finally got some time to start a build thread..
Picked a mk1 caddy with the help from Notorious with some big plans in mind. The truck was already in decent shape but still needed some love. The goal is to have it on bags and pushing 200whp by summer.

The mod list:
1.9 1Z TDI swap
GT2052 wastegate turbo
Custom stainless tubular manifold
Custom intake manifold
Front mount intercooler
HFLOX Warp 5 .250 nozzles
Malone tuning
Nural ALH pistons
VR6 clutch
Airlift sleeve over strut kit with air management
3" Stainless exhaust
Euro front end clip

On with the pics, drove the truck home and went straight on the lift

Started digging into the rust repair in the engine bay

Notchy notchy

Pulled everything i needed from my mk3 jetta and sent her to her grave

The wiring nightmare
Image

Started rebuilding the TDI engine with help from deuce-24
Image
Image

The new turbo! :D
Image

Had Notorious over to scope out the future air ride!

Thats all for now, hopefully by next week ill have the engine ready to drop in and fab up some motor/tranny mounts.

What wheels are those?

They are Ultras 16x7.5, some guy on kijiji had them sitting in his basement still in the original boxes. I'm not sure how old they are but I scored them for only $180
