Right guys..

ive got a 1988 (F) Mk2 Jetta.. currently 1.8 8v Carb.. and im looking to put an ABF into it..

ive heard that the tank, fuel lines, etc, need changing? but is this so?

also.. if i was to purchase an ABF engine and wiring loom, kr fuel pump, would it be a case of swapping the engines over (mounts the same?), using my 4+e gearbox while fitting a 16v flywheel and clutch, and wiring up the engine loom into my fusebox (with a bit of splicing?) or would i need different fusebox etc?

ive searched and read many other threads, just not sure, as all others are about 1.3,etc so need different mounts, etc.

The mechanical swap im ok with doing, its just i need to be sure what exactly wants swapping, joining, modifying, etc.

any info would be great.

With the abf being digifant, you'd only need a gravity fed inline pump. No need for the accumilator crap that k-jets need.

Yeah the engine will bolt up fine with the 4+e box, just use a gti clutch kit and flywheel


Unfortunately as your jetta is on a F plate, its the pre90 spec so has the older fuse panel to what the abf engined cars had. In other words, Not plug and play.

ABF running original injection has been done a fair few times into older model cars though so gaining the info for wiring should be easy Another engine swap thread 51732

tried to do myn over a weekend but now just over 2 weeks lol, (but only cos of the weather)
i used the mk3 tank and lines well easy straight fit. and i also used the mk3 fusebox and full car loom and mk3 subframe, literally a bolt together and plug in job, you can use the mk2 subframe but may have inlet/bonnet clearance issues and the downpipe hitting the bulkhead . as the mk3 subframe lets the block sit about 20mm lower you can get round the mani/bulkhead issue with a 20mm spacer between the mani and dowpipe.
