    What time,money or both?, just wondering because both cars are complete and running(I like TDI better haven't paid for fuel in like 4 months), I thought the swap would consist of like Engine,Tranny,Engine harness,fuel lines and tank

    WHAT? what shell? its a unibody car. if you've got both cars its not hard, no more then a weekend if you're persistent. you will have to drain the fuel tank, and put in the diesel sending unit, and put in the diesel engine/tranny and engine wiring harness. they should have the same fuse panel, you've already got whatever you will need.
    Well, excuse me, for having ENORMOUS flaws, that i don't work on !

    and a cluster.

    in my opinion its not worth the work, thats what i should have said. You can buy mk3 tdi's for fairly cheap, hell even mk4 tdi's are cheap now. but if you want a car that you made run yada yada yada then sure, go ahead and do it.

    I have two 2.0 both with A+ body's both need a little engine/trans work, Im sure I can make one good TDI and one good 2.0 ,as for draining the tanks I was thinking just swapping tanks this way if I don't get ALL!! the fuel out no biggy.

    As for the SHELL comment I was thinking the same thing

    I like mk3s and my TDI engine owes me nothing, but all the mk3 TDIs Ive looked at the body's are NFG (too many miles on the body's) seems like a few of the gassers Ive looked @ body's a little better but not all cases of course. Each to there own I guess, right

    hey if you really want to get into the nuts and bolts of it, most of us who drive older cars do things to them thats "not worth it" but fuck it, if nobody does this stuff we'll all be driving brand new cars, with warranties, like a bunch of sheep. if the mk3is the car you like, then get 'er done

    5k, which is still 4k over priced. But on the vortex, the nut swingers support each other like crutches support a cripple so you can't really say shit without people freaking out...
