    Bought this little baby as an unfinished project.
    Few of you would have seen it posted on here aswell.
    Basically fitted with a G60 lump but the last owner got messed around so much with the conversion that he eventually gave up.
    Anyway plans are to pull the engine out and put it into my mk1 golf and fit the old engine back in.
    I'm sure some of you might recognise it as was featured in a few mags back in the day.
    Here are some piccys hope you like

    bassically the belt tensioner is wedged tight against the chassis rail.
    needs the wiring doing,pipework doing.
    Will be alot easier to pull the engine out and refit the old 1.8 carb engine

    Well weather wasn't too bad today so had spent a quick hour on the Rocco.
    Bassically the engine is now ready to come out again :muhaha:
    The car was never going to run with what the garage had done to it all they had really done was got it bolted in place nothing was connected and what little was connected up was all wrong Laughing
    Anyway all i have to do now is get the engine crane out and lift the old girl out Smile
    some progress piccys
    As it was before i started
    The other VW **update engine is out** A254_3
    The offending fanbelt adjuster that was touching on the chassis rail.what they had done wrong was weld the engine mount too low and the engine was on the p**S :wall:
    The other VW **update engine is out** SP_A0052
    Removed all the charger pipes fanbelt all the dodgy wiring,pipes they had cut for no reason,coil few other bits and bobs.
    Unbolted downpipe and driveshafts
    The other VW **update engine is out** SP_A0050
    The other VW **update engine is out** SP_A0048
    was left with a big pile of junk Laughing
    The other VW **update engine is out** SP_A0049
    Should be out next weekend and old engine back in place when i have the crane back at mine

    also thought the engine was standard but looks like it has a jabba stage 2 charger on it so a little bonus.

    Just got to clean it all up now,change some gaskets and do the crank oil seals.also going to swap the 16v servo and TSR 280mm brake conversion onto my MK1 and then it's time for the old engine to go back in.
