Hi all,
I'm about to start my engine conversion on my 1.6d caddy to 1.8 20v turbo
I swapped my mk2 vr6 for a pretty solid caddy 2 weeks ago
And yesterday I picked up a mk4 golf gti 1.8t for 450 from chatteris. Complete car just seen the wrong side of a hedge and post but all the stuff I need is intact. In fact the car drives really well and the wife is gonna use it for a couple of weeks as the cam belt "fell off" our A4 and were waiting for a new head . . . . Long story.
I'm gonna get some photos uploaded and keep the thread as up to date as possible. I'll also be calling on you all no doubt as things progress.

I haven't got a parts list yet so any input would be greatly received

Regards

Paul

A few holes to fill in here

Looks pretty good on the surface

1.6d a not so quality item. Noisy starter, horrific linkage, hella stiff clutch. A dream to drive the wife loves it !!!!

The donor picking up tomorrow.

Yea I watched it on the bay and it went through with no bids so I offered him a swap and it took a few weeks for us both to sort out a meeting halfway between both of us which turned out to be Oxford and we did a swap in a McDonalds car park. He drove my vr I drove the caddy we swapped keys and drove home.

Me and fellow Fendubber Andy (dragon green cabriolet with schmidts) went to collect the donor car from Chatteris in the caddy. It has been said that if I didn't have bad luck then I would have no luck at all..
Managed to cut through the fuel line on a speed bump in Chatteris town centre leaving me dripping fuel out all the way back and doing 20.00 of diesel to do 22 miles. . . Nice
The donor was not without problems too. It had a bit of a misfire on the test drive but the guy said it had been standing for a couple of weeks so I got Andy to give it a beasting on the way home to try to dry it out. But the misfire was worse when we got it back. I just thought I'd check the plugs and coil packs. All coil packs fine but one plug had the electrode missing!!!!! So luckily for me a new set of plugs and she was as good as new.
So a quick clean over hoover out and a home made Perspex window and she will do for now.
