Can We Overcome Even More Issues? Scirocco Engine Swap (Part 3/3)

We are on our last few days to try and finish this car so we can drive it home.
We are on a journey of taking a 1984 VW Scirocco driving it on an 1100 mile road trip and swapping the engine in the process.
in our last two episodes, we picked up the Scirocco and drove it to Florida. We pulled the old CIS Engine and cleaned up the engine bay. We then dropped the new VR6 Engine in worked hard to do the first start-up. The car would not start and we finally diagnosed it as a bad starter.
Today we get a new starter and try to start the car for the first time. We then deal with problem, after problem, after problem. Our goal at the end is to drive it from Florida to NC, can we do it?

    • Ok guys, I will make you a deal... I know where there's a better Scirocco for 500... AND, I have a 2002 t-boned Jetta TDI, AND a 6 speed manual swap kit from Frans (Netherlands)... I want 2000 for my Jetta (runs/starts perfectly, 1200 miles on a new timing set/head gasket). Email me at (its_karl79 AT hotmail) I will not take a penny less than 2000, I spent 1500 on the swap kit, and 1200 on the work done to my Jetta before my nephew was T-boned driving to work. This is a steal, and it's an easy complete swap. I'm deleting the comment in 24 hours.

Nice to see someone do a cool engine swap in the Scirocco to :) Over here in Sweden i have mostly seen Golf/Jetta Mk1 and Mk2 swaps, both Vr6 swap and 1.8T swaps. Looking forward to see more of the Scirocco!

  • This is the way my father now 90 years old use to do it , take the new starter which is not clock right and take it apart and put what is good on the one that is bad ! Too many headaches for a simple fix ! Like my father said, the more advance we are the more complicated we are!

  • This Scirocco brings back the memories. This was the very first brand new car my mom owned. She bought it brand new in 1987 when her and my dad both had job promotions. My did bought a truck and my mom bought a VW. She drove this car well into the 90’s. She took immaculate care of it. It was the car I learned to drive a manual transmission in and it was the car I took my drivers test in.

I have had more bad and misboxed parts more often than not. Good Job. U coulda taken the starter to A-1 in Palmetto and he coulda rebuilt it for U. Let Jamie Know bout them. They are across from Thor Trailers. Keep up the neat, cool work !

  • The 1995 Corrado ( my realistic dream car) VR6, it was a DOHC as we all know is just a technicality due to cylinder bank configuration, but was offered with the 24 valve head. In grade 11 in 1995 I swore one day I would own one. For now my 1987 VW 2dr Fox 2dr 1.8L cis injected SOHC 8v with a whopping 81hp, and 93 lb/flbs of torque . I was silly and ran a 1/4 MI with it, and ended with a blistering fast 17.7 sec at like...82 or 78 mph lolol, I don't remember exactly. A year I traded for the same car only in red, and a 1990 instead of a 87. no options on either car, just a basic a to b. I never did buy my dream car 1995 Corrado. I did buy a 92 dr Accord and had a professional shop swap a JDM 2.2 H22, keeping the factory 5 speed, installed a new clutch, and left it with an open diff . It worked fabulously. That filled the gap till I had more money, it did run a 14.7 at 102mph. In 2016 we traded our 2016 Mazda cx-3 AWD for a 2015 TSI 1.8 auto, and was blown away with the quickness. I kept it for 6 months then traded for a top line trim 17 black GTI, 8 months later traded for a brand new (MK 7.5) Golf R, it was a 2018. 292hp was amazing. In closing, I'll probably never find my Corrado, but I think I am okay with that. Cars of the 80s and 90s weren't great years for VW, but the last 3 vw's I had were bulletproof (I drive my cars carefully). Now I wait for the 2021 Golf R.

Take it off, do a quick test it, tadam ! it's defective ! Oh shoots ! You've got rotted, 40 years old fuel lines, pissing gas everywhere. "No, no time to replace the whole frigging lines". You patch them up with hoses. 😳 You've got 40 years old brake lines. "Nah there good enough. We don't want to touch them, they may break!" Duh ! Honestly, boys, you're dumb as sh...t !
