So Im finally doing a swap for myself, seems like one of the more increasingly popular ones nowadays. This will be a daily driver that I want to be comfortable, fast, unique, and reliable.

Here is what Im working with-
1998 GTI 2.0 body (nearly rust free!)
1998 AHU from WICKED rusty Jetta

Engine had to get torn down and bored since the timing belt broke before I got the donor. So it will be a fresh engine a spiffed up and running strong.

Ill do the usual stuff in terms of mods, nothing outragous. Well OK, I do want a side exit exhaust. Ill get nozzles, chip, maybe a different turbo, straight exhaust, VR6 clutch, and some suspension stuff.

Here is the project with the ABS deleted, pedal stuff done, ready for harness. Engine still in pieces until I finish this part.

....And for the record....I dont care what ANYONE says, I love those wheels!
