  1. Passat Project

    Bought this car in June 2010 for $2k. Seemed like a pretty good deal. It's an 01 1.8t auto with tiptronic, was quicker than I expected and get's insane gas mileage. 90k miles on the body and the engine was just rebuilt. The original owner never changed the timing belt or something. I don't think it had ever seen a garage and it needed some TLC all around. The seats were pretty rough, it had a small oil leak and ac wasn't working. KBB trade-in value for fair condition was $3k, so I went for ...

  2. Next Project - 4.0 TT Build

    Maybe it's too early to post this, especially considering the issues I've had with my last project and that I'm not even finished with it yet, but I think it's good to have goals and and better to have them in writing. This isn't going to happen anytime soon unless I somehow run into an extra $10k to $20k. It's also going to be a lot more work, but hopefully the lessons I've learned from my "Swap Everything Project" will help.

    My next goal, as the title says will be a ...

  3. Slight change of plans, 6g74 / built atx

It also had the removable sunroof, so I was happy about that. The engine in this was blown, making it much more affordable, and I just finished getting my 3.5 ready, so this was good timing. Anyway as soon as I got it home, I went to work on it.

    6g74 Swap
  4. My 6g74 project. Also my 1st engine swap.

    I've wanted to do this for a few years now, ever since I first heard about it.
    I found a great deal on ebay for one. $1100 shipped, and it got here in 3 days.
    I also have a good 5 speed transmission with about 120k miles on it from a previous project.
    I'm looking to sell my current dd, I think 1500 to 2000 should be an easy goal.
    That should give me plenty of funds for a cheap shell in better shape than my current dd (260k miles) as well as a few upgrades.
    Also, ...
