New Mk2 Helios Blue Jetta 16v owner

Post by kappa 3 on Fri Dec 06, 2013 5:10 pm

Hi All,

I am going to be a proud owner of a 1990 Stratos Blue Jetta 1.8 16v tomorrow and thought I add myself to the forum to get advise and assistance from you fellow members.

I have been in the dub scene many years ago, with my first dub being a mk1 golf, then done a vr6 conversion, this is going back about 10 years or so. I then went into the jap scene and the classic mini scene.

But now in the past year went back into the dub scene again, where my passion for cars started. Very Happy 

I own two Corrado's at the moment, one a black 1.8 16v, which is going tomorrow for my Jetta and the other being a nugget yellow with a 1.8T BAM conversion.

So I just want to say a thanks for the join and will upload some pics of the Jetta tomorrow, once I pick it up.

Cheers

Bobby

NO NO leave alone don't put "big bumpers" on it, looks so mint.
The small bumper look is much better (somehow always look a bit "aftermarket" even if proper bits used)
Or maybe I'm a bit strange!!!!!!

Cheers mate for your input, I also decided I am keeping the small bumpers now. Keeps it more retro.

Now I am think what to do with the engine, shall I turbo the KR engine, as I already have the turbo kit or shall drop a VR6 in there?

personally i would either big bumper it seeing as you already have the trims on.. either way its lovely! Vr's are supposed to be awesome in Jetta's due to the boot.. Though a proper turbo set up on a kr is always amazing!

Cheers mate, I am going to keep it small bumpered now, as I feel gives it more the retro look.

In regards to the engine:

Basically I want to buy a engine to build in the summer to put into my Mk2 Jetta 16v over the winter of 2014 and stuck on a few choices. I will be keeping my original KR to the side, so if I ever decided to sell, I can keep the originality of the car.

Basically these are the choices i am thinking off:

1. VR6 OBD2 (Supercharge or Turbocharge later)
2. 2.8 V6 24v (Supercharge or Turbocharge later)
3. ABF 2.0 16v Turbocharged
4. KR 1.8 16v Turbocharged

I don't know which one to go for, so can someone shed some light and help on this please?

I also have a Turbo Technics Kit for the KR engine and a Audi S2 Inlet Manifold modified to suit the KR, 9A & ABF.

So I was thinking, if I go down the route of the KR or ABF turbo I can utilize these parts, as I was thinking of using the exhaust manifold from the Turbo Technics Kit and the Audi S2 Inlet manifold and make a turbo kit for either the KR or ABF engine?

Although I a swaying towards the ABF turbo route, as I think the vr6 and 24v will be nose heavy.

Cheers

Bobby
