Another engine conversion rolls out of the barn....

This is Beki's Jetta as she got it last year

She got it from Will Risely from Crazy Dubs. It was previously matt pink
Princess Sparkle 100_1579
At VW Action last year

All was ok until the end of the year when the 1300 decided it wouldnt start. We tried everything and it wouldn't fire so we tested the compression and it was very low. Princess Sparkle Icon_cry
We decided it needed a turbo diesel for good daily mpg and more speed.
We found a 1.6 td from a b3 passat so got to work

We like mk2 turbo diesels

Finished with the new bonnet with beki's sticker collection!

Thanks to the Dub Baron himself, Mark b and anyone else that helped with anything.
It's a lot faster now with a good dirty diesel sound and turbo whistle and is so much better on fuel. 5 gears and power steering make driving better too. Turbo diesel FTW
Plans are new wheels and to tune the engine up for more speed and black smoke!

She wants to get some deep 13s for it but I think she should get something a bit bigger. We got more stickers to go on the bonnet now from Stanford Hall. Kinky Micks stickersPrincess Sparkle 128807 Bex has also decupatched the sun visors so they have got to go in. It's got a GTI interior and she wants to recover the seats aswell.

The rack fits onto normal roof bars so is universal. I actually got it to put on my mk4 but havent got round to getting roof bars for it yet. I got the thule rack second hand from jimmymidnight but i think they are quite cheap.

It seems like Tescos website is quite good for roof baskets or try ebay. You could borrow this one if you can get some roof bars that fit yours. RTTS should be fun. I think we're taking the Jetta but because she's a teacher Bex can't get the Friday off so we're driving late.

and to quickly thread jack, the best place for baskets is Halfords - they have the Thule one in the pics above for 20

http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_storeId_10001_catalogId_10151_productId_221451_langId_-1_categoryId_165760 - but it will only work on square bars - other baskets normally cost more.

Terry I dont think I'll be at this months Fendubbers. I should be half way down the M5 to Cornwall all being well!Princess Sparkle 460227

Jimmymidnight is the man in the know about roof stuff! It wont fit on a mk4 roof bar then unless they are square ones. Big Cable ties and lots of duct tape should solve this howeverPrincess Sparkle Icon_cheers

Nice!
I'd love to get an older car and do an engine conversion but I just dont have the patience or knowledge!
Cover that bonnet in stickers and deck it on some modernlines and it'll look sweet! Princess Sparkle 51732

I'm sorry it's just not my cup of tea at all.

But on a good note.....

Its refreshing to see something leftfield or different, it's what drives 'all of this' forward.

I applaud your choices, direction and dedication to your project.
