That might cover it. I am done with 1.8T’s for a while I think so its time to liquidate.

Block I paid $1500+ or so to build. Head has over $5000 invested in it and I got it for $2600 here: http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthread.php?4836868-FS-Schrick-Solid-Lifter-Conversion-20V-AEB-head-Ported-Polished-Machined-10-500rpm-PICS&highlight=solid+lifter+AEB. Intake manifold has about $500 into it. Exhaust manifold is $400 and $100 for coating. clutch disk is $150. $200 for wastegate. $600 into the exhaust and down pipe. $240 in injectors. $60 for mocal plate.

There is almost $10K in parts here here. This motor was built right, and will make 500whp without even thinking about it, 600whp sure. 700whp yep, 800whp could… anyone looking for a setup like this knows what its going to produce in the right hands. rev it to the moon and let that massive turbo spool at 6000RPM and hang the hell on till 10,000rpm!

I am looking for $6000 for everything listed, and what ever other 1.8T related things I can find in the shop. Radiator, e-fans, plumbing, fittings. Add a turbo, oil lines, fuel lines, and an ECU and you have one of a hand full of 1.8T’s ever built like this.

This is the motor when it was freshly built only 4Kmi ago. I still have to get up to the shop to take a pic of the condition now. It was never run lean, only ran 26psi on a 3076R with it, never saw anything past 7500rpm, properly broken in using Lucas break in additive then ran full synthetic oil. Assembled by Boyds Motor Works in Gloversville NY. Motor is mint. Current condition pics coming soon. ASKING $800

Real TIAL 38MM wastegate. With a custom made angle to keep it from hitting the ATP manifold. Works perfectly with the downpipe recirculated back in.

GLWS looks legit

LOL i wish

wait so youre not doing the rwd jetta anymore? :frowning:

YESS i still am.

Its getting a 5.3L and maybe a turbo too. Zero machine work needed. Over the counter parts. Same power, with more weight but ohh well.

SHE made you do this didn’t she? lol GLWS

LOL nope me decision. I just want to run the car. I wouldnt have it ready with the 1.8T in it until next season. If this sells, or most of it. I could have the jetta running in a months time with a V8.

Will part out too. Added prices to pieces. If there is something there you want just ask.
