    Engine Swaps

    Has anyone on this website had one? I am soon to have a new engine and I want to see who can do the best job the fastest and hopefully not to expensive... Please do recommend any place that could do it within like a 2 week period while not costing an arm and a leg

    do it yourself!

    8v's can be ripped out in like 18 seconds or so!

    alright maybe not that quick but the only real headache would be wiring the vr

    what year is the motor?

    rabbits are WEAK cars, you can ripple fenders just driving it hard with the stock motor, dont EVER add power without reinforcing the car

    The motor I have is a CIS-E(1987 VW Jetta)...I know none of the wiring matchs up at all thats why I need someone who knows about VW's and who will be able to figure out how to do it...

    You putting a 12 valve in her?

    That's what I'd like to put in the little cabby, just not sure if you have more room to stuff it under your hood than I do

    I hope you have the full harness, ecu, cluster, as well as the engine/tranny, plus the shifter box, etc..

    You can keep your pedal assembly if you use a eurovan 'clutch bracket' and a CRX(yes, honda crx) clutch cable instead of swapping over to the hydraulic clutch pedal assembly.

    I'm not positive, but I think you need the subframe from a MK3 or corrado as well.

    To be honest, you might only need the subframe if you're going to run the MK3 VR suspension(plus suspension).. If you're keeping the stock suspension, hubs, brakes, etc then you might be fine with the stock subframe.

    If you want to keep the cable clutch, then the eurovan clutch bracket is your friend... Thanks to bajaguy for that little tid-bit of goodness.

    no he needs the mk III or corrado subframe, the rear mount is in a different position as far as I kan remember.

    and seeing his car is pre-CE2, he'll need to do either some custom wiring, or he'll need to re-wire the entire car to CE2.

    ESS is just too expensive, they are a big shop and they will charge you a arm and a leg for the work,

    I might go with ESS because I was told by the seller that he could get the swap in for me for 1200$ or so...Which is a ishload better then a few places have quoted me...LoL...Biggest quote I got was 3100$ for the swap...I giggled like a little school girl...

    ^^ $3100 really isn't that terrible either, considering ALL the wiring that has to be done to make the swap work.. $1200 seems to good to be true, even if you do have EVERY piece needed for the swap and they just have to put it together.
