View Thread: Need Help

I need to find someone who knows about the interchability of parts for the VW 1.8T's (the beetle, passat, jetta, golf, and a4). I'm in a club at school trying to do the $2004 GRM challange. We're trying to get a '00 1.8T Audi engine in a '85 Gti and we need to know what parts from cheaper VW's could work for engine management and such. Rotery Boy, I'm looking at you, :D

How much is the 1.8 going to cost alone? Assuming its from a junkyard.

the 1.8 was already bought, we just need to figure out how to make it work. all the electronics we need to know about.

that seems like it would already exceed your 2K limit, but if it can be done :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

throw some TP/FF stickers on that for the GRM challenge ;) :D :tp:

Dude that rocks! I've always wanted to compete in that challenge! Maybe I can live through you guys :D haha I assume you already have a driver :(

I'll have to do some digging and find out some more 1.8T info for you. I might know some people that can help.

And since we all know stickers make it faster you definitely need some TP/FF stickers (thanks for thinking of me btw FabUlous!). :D

here's a list of parts. i'll be scouring ebay and junkyards for them, but if any of you know where i can find them, i'd appreciate it


Turbo (preferably K03)
Mass Air Flow sensor
throttle body
fuel rail
fuel injectors
fuel pressure regulator
clutch
pressure place
intercooler
thermostat
camshaft position sensor
PCV port
coil packs
alternator
belts
turbo duction
hoses / fittings / seals

everything must work for the Audi 1.8T, and Tripleplate has a prime spot on the car if you come through.

Hmmmmm....I dont know much about the rules or the compatibility, but i still have my 300zx sitting in the drivway. It's totalled, but still got good motor and tranny and stuff. You can have whatever you want off of it.

hmmm, interesting, i don't think we can use it this year, but i'll look up and see if by donating it to a state association (our school through us) you could get a good tax deduction. When did your Z get totalled BTW, :(
