Well, I was talking to Tom over at TJ's Performance, and come to find out, the 1.8 engine is very weak. Not to mention a waste of time. So what we have decided to do, is drop a full vr6 conversion into it. So scrap that build list for the 1.8, cuz its time for me to go NA lol. All I need to find is a donor car to tear apart. It goes into Lach's garage for engine tear down and rebuild. Once its done and to my liking, its getting sent over to TJ's for the install. Keep your eyes open for vr6 parts!

The plan is:
Get me a donor car equipped with vr6.
Take it to Lach's garage (if he allows it)
Strip everything out of it including wire harness
Start the build. Engine block is good for up to 400-430hp
Head will be worked over with bigger cams, springs ect.
Get a head spacer to drop the compression
Boost it Very Happy
Obviously do a nice clean up and paint.
Send it over to TJ's Performance
Tear everything out of the bug
Lighten her up a bit.
Drop in built vr6 and watch her go vvrrrrrroooommmmmm Shocked

call it a day and grab a few beers

and thats all she wrote lol cheers

no. actually pretty easy in general. All the volkswagen gens are interchangeable. The only thing is finiding a power inverter to change the 4cl tach pulse to a 6cyl.
