Hello!

Selling a good condition Mk2 dual outlet exhaust manifold. Bolt in for Mk2 and Mk3 N/A engines, will work on Mk1 with a conversion downpipe from Techtonics Tuning. Very durable, great performance and sound.
No cracks, studs and gasket surfaces are in good condition.

These are nicer than the Mk1 manifolds, as they have larger ports and bigger studs.
Located in Toronto, can ship worldwide or deliver within about 1 hour of here for a little extra.
Asking $100 CAD (Techtonics sells "reconditioned" versions of these-- bead blasted and painted-- for $200USD)

Here's what a n/a diesel sounds like with this manifold and a techtonics system:

Hello!
If you're interested in converting your AAZ or TDI to normally aspirated, this is a good option for the intake manifold. Also good as an upgrade for high performance turbocharging. The long runners improve low and midrange torque and can improve the driveability of a big turbo engine for either AAZ or TDI, and are what give the N/A engine its long, flat torque band (with performance pump-- see my other FS posts).

Imported from Europe, I was running this one on my n/a AAZ (see my other FS items) and used a second one on a highly modified turbo AAZ racer.

Asking $100 Canadian ($75 USD)

Located in Toronto Ontario, can deliver for a bit extra up to 1 hr drive in any direction from there, or ship worldwide.

Parts for Sale/Wanted / FS: Low KM AAZ bottom end
« Last post by Dr. Diesel on Today at 02:02:46 pm »
Hello!
Selling an AAZ shortblock. less than 5000KM (3100 miles) since the overhaul.
Sadly, the head dropped a prechamber and ruined one piston.

Balanced crank and rods, ARP main studs, new bearings, rings and honed cylinders. Crank nose modified and fitted with a TDI timing sprocket.
Buy a ring set, stab in a good piston and you've got an inexpensive fresh bottom end.

Asking $300 CAD ($220 USD)-- only slightly more than the ARP main studs' value alone.

Located in Toronto Ontario, can deliver for a bit extra up to 1 hr drive in any direction from there, or ship worldwide at your expense.

AAZ power! 2nd gear burnout! https://youtu.be/ATwN807QJoM

The fourth rod and piston assembly is included, of course.
I also have the damaged head and other parts. See my other FS ads.

Parts for Sale/Wanted / FS: Low KM AAZ ported head
« Last post by Dr. Diesel on Today at 01:44:04 pm »
... That dropped a prechamber. =(

A craftsman could bring it back to life, but most likely this head's future is to give up its good parts ( cam, sprocket and 3 cylinders' worth of valves, springs and lifters, bearing caps and studs, etc) and maybe be band sawed to show port cross sections.

$50 CAD ($38 USD)

Hello!

I'm selling my 'Super pump' built by Giles at PDI. It is a Mk2 IDI pump built with a 1.9L cam plate and all Giles' tricks. I was running it on a 1.9L AAZ in N/A configuration (with proper 1.9L "D-port" intake manifold and dual outlet N/A exhaust manifold-- also both for sale) in a Mk2 Jetta. An excellent combination. Plenty of power for modern traffic and simplicity, economy and reliability that can't be beaten.
Sadly, the car rusted out from around the engine, so it's being parted out.

The pump has 8000km (~5000 miles)on it, gently gathered over the last 10 years. Stanadyne lubricity formula was always used with each fill up.
Functions perfectly! Will fit 1.5, 1.6, 1.9L engines with the appropriate bracketry. Mk1 needs a Mk1 pump bracket because it includes the passenger side engine mount. Late AAZ or AHU/ALH being converted to N/A would need to use Mk1 or Mk2 pump bracket. I can include a Mk2 mount if you need at no extra charge.
If put on a 1.6L, you'd probably need to turn the fuel screw out a bit to avoid being overly smokey... or just add nitrous oxide!

Asking $500 Canadian ($375 USD-- about half the price of new)

Located in Toronto Ontario, can deliver for a bit extra up to 1 hr drive in any direction from there, or ship worldwide.

Just for fun, here's a link to what a diesel sounds like in N/A form with a good exhaust system, on my car.

Here's the man himself, Giles of PDI.

There's the expected weathering on the outside of the pump, but don't let that turn you off. Performance pumps are the heart and soul of diesel power and that goes equally with n/a engines. This pump will provide full fueling a little past 6000RPM. With the proper intake and exhaust, it'll beat an equivalent-year/setup 8v GTI in a drag race or autocross race. (proven)
This pump will provide your N/A engine with a dramatic increase in performance.
Buy with confidence!

IDI Engine / Re: 5 liter oil capacity.......how much circulates?

IDI Engine / Re: 5 liter oil capacity.......how much circulates?
« Last post by ORCoaster on May 18, 2019, 10:28:41 pm »
Mod the oil pan?  OK if you have to. 

I would think 2 liters is a bit much for all that is circulation.  Maybe counting the head catching some and then the drain down. 

I would suspect that if you keep the pickup tube the same distance from the bottom of the pan you would not have any problems.  The volume in there would be higher at the one end if the capacity was the same.  So do you think you would have problems with the crank splashing into it and creating flow disruptions? 

More oil in the same pan would be similar and don't we get warnings not to overfill past the full mark by more than 1/2 a liter.

Just some thoughts.  Keep us up to date on this.

Brilliant in the simplicity of it all. 

And no more fungus or it smells like a baby for awhile.

Thanks!!!!  Now we can go back to our abnormal diesel discussions. 
Great site until the hack happened.
