you have an mk2 obviously..thats the very first year they made mk2's, you have cis injection in your engine..u dont have ce2(central electric ) which means swapping an engine from a 90 or newer car would be very good for your car. all mk2 jettas and golfs are very simlar is body style..let me know what your looking to do to it and ill find something u might like

What's up. About your exterior choices. That bumper looks good. It's a rs style. Alot of companies sell a version of it. And as far as side skirts and rear bumper. All mk2's have the same side skirts. It doesn't matter if it's a 4 door or 2 door. They'll all fit. And the rear is the same as a 2 door so that won't be too hard. There is a lot of simple diy mods you can do. Check my sig for some mods i did. As far as motor. It all depends on how much money you want to spend. All vw engines are basicly able to be put in any car. Except the new w8. A vr6 a 1.8t a 2.0 xflow. A 16v swap will probably be the least expensive. But cruise this site and others and get some good ideas before you start ripping into the car and do somthing you wish you hadn't. Good luck and keep us posted. Also you should post some pics in the showoff section. That way everybody can see it. Later
