I would love to have one some day, but for now I'm going to have to settle for a 99-01 VW Passat if I can ever get my 99 SSEi in condition to sell.
G/F has a VW Passat 1.8T. Fun little bugger to drive, definately manuevers better than the ol' Regal.

95na, Nice job on that swap, any pics of the car it went into??

He dynoed 198 whp before with the old motor and the power band was kind of peaky. With a good tune he should be at 220 whp with much more mid/low end torque.
I'm not sure if he'* going to dyno n/a or just wait till he gets his GT35-R ball bearing turbo setup.
