kondzi,

Shes a keeper. I enjoy the car, and its something i have always had my eye on, even from from childhood. This is certainly not an investment vehicle. Interior was trashed, and it was poorly ...

Ahh, sorry to hear that. Had an Audi 100 with that engine, really liked it. With regards to mating the engine to the torque tube: what did you find was most difficult? Any tips I could learn from?

You should keep well the original engine, just in case.

I am undecided yet on the exact engine. I am currently leaning to a 1.8l 8v JH out of the original rabbi ...

nickthompson,

What a great combination for forced induction... drove a rabbit with this combo and it surprised me how brutal it was. Then you add in the relative simplicity of that combo vs 1.8t (e ...
