1991 Jetta Turbo Diesel swap with hood stack
« on: March 11, 2016, 09:15:02 pm »
Hey guys here's my Jetta it's got a 1.6td swapped in. Hood stack straight off the turbo. Fuel screw is turned in a bit and I got a boost gauge and the "pimp your glow plugs" button. Soon to have the gas tach working with it. She rolls coal all day  ;)

This is her with the headlight conversion and summer rims that I'm about to put back on her.

That's sweet, I want to do that but I'm not sure how long I'd go before getting pulled over. Where are you located? Is it legal where you are.

This is freaking DOPE. I"ve been thinking about putting in a stack on the caddy but instead of having it come out from behind the cab, I was thinking about having it come out at the tailgate. Like just a couple inches higher than the tailgate itself.

Must not have a canopy then.  Gotcha

You might not like the swirling diesel in the bed.  It will come right in the back window.  Unless you don't have a slider anyway.  Bed will get all full of soot though

Not a big deal, Just one of my better thinking days.  Sometimes I am on the other end too.
