very nice find and good luck with it, surely to make dubber fans jealous. vw's are a pain in the a$$ to work on IMO

Are you rebuilding or swapping for another engine?

I hate to admit it on here, but I've always liked that body style of Jetta, especially the Wolfsburg Edition~ jah! German engineering from Germany, guten tag!..... unlike regular Jettas rocking der German name und built in Mexico. (NEIN!!!)

Ahhh, the 1.8 turbo, the 2.7 of volkswagens. Car looks to be in nice shape, they are fun little cars, nice power.

You can repair the engine, I'll bet anything the timing tensioner failed, belt came off, and pistons hit the valves. If it wasnt that, then someone fixed it already during the cars life. It will cost $1000-$1500 to repair the head, if you do it yourself...Since its got so many miles, you could put a used engine in, last I checked they were $1500 to $3000, for something with decent miles.

Ive rebuilt the heads on a couple of these, and did an engine swap or two, if you need any help, let me know. Front end will have to come off of the car. The head is pretty complex, 5 valves per cylinder, and you'll need a special Volkswagen cylinder head bolt socket.

If you go used engine route, immediately get the new timing belt and tensioner kit, from Volkswagen, regardless of miles or condition of the new engine. This was a known common failure and can kill your new engine just as it did this one.
