  20. A/C in a VR6 Swap

    Okay, so I'm continuing with my VR6 swap this Memorial Day weekend... and I'm realizing as I go along that I'm EVEN MORE of an idiot when it comes to working on VWs. Unlike Toyotas, the A/C system in my Jetta is no easy workaround. With summer on my ass, I'm inclined to keep the A/C in tact...
