Update for today, the new rad/cooler combo and frame is all bolted in, the carbon dipped slam panel that I've had for ages is fitted too.
I also made up a bracket for the golf header tank that luke donated, the passat 1 is an awkward shape so the golf 1 suits the position better. (I'll just have to extend the wiring for the coolant level sensor)
Tried for a 1st start last week but something was obviously a miss as the fuel pump wasn't running with the ignition so went through it again and found a loose earth.
Hey presto she's a runner! :D
Chuffed is an understatement! :lol: (short video as there's no coolant in just yet)

Just finished reading from start to finish, and your conversion has certainly got my interest. I currently drive a mk7 2.2 fwd trend, but the mk 5 has always been my favourite! the only thing is the need for ear defenders when driving the buggers. I recently had a spin in my dads old mk5 that my brother is running and I forgot how loud and slow they are. (I still think it will be running long after my mk 7 has had engine failure :P

So I finally managed a test drive in the tourneo today.

Did a few odd jobs beforehand like fitting a non return valve to the fuel line, bodged together a 90deg boost hose as the 1 I'd ordered didn't arrive in time.

Took some templates for the brackets for the grill to mount to aswell, fitted the egt and boost guages and refitted the dash back together.

Here's the link to YouTube for a short video of the test drive on our street and a few pics too 8)

Thanks for taking the time to read, I never actually drove this van with the di fitted so I've nothing to guage the noise level on, it's certainly not a nice noise to listen to at the side of the v6 that was in before! :lol:

It seems so at the moment, it was literally the 1st time I've driven it and couldn't really get the turbo spinning up fully as the boost hose I've bodged would've probably popped off but 1st impressions feel like it should be more than ample.
I am intending on having it mapped etc further down the line so should be more than adequate by then 8)

Are these engines mostly controlled from an Ecu? Dont suppose theres an option to run it purely mechanically?

I think they did an earlier pre pd mechanical pump version but I'm not completely clued up on the vw lumps :?:

Had a good few hours on the van again today, fitted the boost pipe that I was waiting for and finished off the last bits of wiring for the transit water temp sensor and oil pressure sensor.
Also fitted the vac pipe I'd made up using ½ transit and ½ vw.

Had her running up to temp and and got a few test drives up and down the street, was able to put my foot down a little and was pleasantly surprised at how pokey it was! :lol:
2nd test run saw a boostpipe blow off so just shows its producing boost 8)

I do have a few snags to address later down the line, it seems a have a weeping crank seal and a noisy thrust bearing (was a reused 2nd hand part :roll: ) so will sort both these at the same time.

Boost and egt guages fitted, dash reassembled, radio fitted, small brackets I'd made up to support the grill fitted and all of the crap I'd collected in the boot removed too. :lol:

Shes desperate for a good wash after being stood for nearly 18mths but is all but ready for an mot, just a new set of wipers as the others have perished due to being sat.

Do you have to change the log book or anything now that it's a 1.9?

I haven't as yet and didn't get round to it either when the jag engine was fitted :lol:
Can't see it affecting the tax etc as its now a smaller engine but the insurance have been informed of it and all the other mods 8)

So a small update.....she now has an mot!! 8)

Had her booked in for Thursday afternoon then realised Wednesday evening I hadn't sorted the binding handbrake cable! :shock:

Luckily I had some hours owed at work and I'd already booked a half day too so spent the morning trying to sort it.....
After messing around trying to free the cable off on 1 side I had to fit a new 1,.....mot that afternoon and she passed!

She's definitely showing her age in places since she's been stood so I'll have a few spots that will need attention but she's still solid underneath 8)
