    Yup. He is probably on the dealer list as well as me I think they are blowing out those NA 1.9ls right now. They also still have AAZs last time I talked to them.

    Also, jsut the longblock will run you into some issues. The pump is different, the injectors are different, and the injector lines are different. You can use your pump and injectors though. The lines will not work though. You will need replacement lines if you use the 1.9l longblock.

    Yes, he said he would use my pump and injectors, different lines and also would include a new timing cover.

    Eurospec AAZ conversion kit is on order.

    Perhaps no turbo this year but we all know what the tax return might bring

    Sorry I havent called Mr. Uninformed yet. Its been crazy busy. FWIW, an AAZ by definition is a turbo motor.

    That's ok, I have no idea how to get through to that guy.

    It's an AAZ long block...just missing the turbo. A 1.9TD, without the 'T' if you will

    Hopefully enough power to make it up a hill.

    It will certainly make it up a hill add the turbo and it will blow the doors off a GTI while getting 45mpg. You will need proper exhaust for that though. That can come later. An AAZ in a rabbit is pretty fun. Dial up the boost and the pump and the first couple gears are nothing but wheelspin. Still getting 45mpg Plus, you can run it on free fuel This is the awesomeness of diesel. Dont tell anyone though, then everyone will be doing it

    Sounds like this is going to be fun! Now I can't wait.

    And yes, first thing first, I need a fuel efficient daily driver. The rest can come later.

    Think I will see any gain from having a 1.9 NA breathing through a header and techtonics exhaust?

    It was rather terse. Hope it helps in any event.

    A day late, but in any case, the bunny is back on the road! Woooooo!

    Next on the list, breaking in the new motor.

    Then, save up for some wheels, decent suspension and find all the interior bits.

    Thanks go out to the guys at DJM!

    Oh, it was a typical VW drive back, shift linkage popped loose and one of the transmission bolts worked it's way out...nothing that wasn't fixable.

    Win! Hopefully the scammy Mcscammerson manned up as well. Turbo time well at least when the finances recover. turbo 1.9l IDI is pretty epic in stock form. Modified form is a 2.0l 16V gasser contender with better MPG of course.

    Yeah, nothing in the scammer department. That is to be expected. I'm just really glad to have a daily driver again right now. Being a brand new motor the car might actually rust away before it throws a rod.

    It is however impossible for me to get home over the speed bumps without scraping the exhaust.

    With all the other bills I have piling up the finances will take an eternity to recover, but the one nice thing about money is that I can always work and make some more. I'd say come tax return time it might need a turbo. But then again, I also have a '55 Ford that REALLY needs a "drop 'em & stop 'em" kit!
