Yes it's posible. I'm not exactly sure the exact thing needed are though. And it's a 4cyl, 20v. not a 5cyl.

I know the motor you're talking about... its a 5. but i dont know if its the smartest choice. audi had a 2.0 in the audi 80 or 90 that would drop right into our set up, no changing of anything. it uses same intake, computer, etc. im lookin to do that swap in the future

the Dahlback car has a Audi 5cyl turbo, not sure if it's the same one in question, but it might be a good choice if it fits.

is the engine transverse? If not then i don't know thatr it would work. I mean it's possible but you say with little customizing, so it's kinda out of the question. But if it's transversethen i'm sure it can be done farly easy.

Wont fit... not a chance in hell, don't even think about it.

1. It's 8" longer... your engine is only a couple inches from the strut tower.
2. The bellhousing is different
3. The crankshaft bolt pattern is different
4. It doesn't make enough power stock

Dahlbacks car cost him over $300,000 USD to build.

The only way to do it would be to run the engine front to back and use an Audi drivetrain... (involves cutting out the floor, firewall, moving the rack... pretty much removing everything but the bare skin). at which point your Jetta would be almost identical to an Audi 4000 Quattro with a 20v 5cyl in it.

Dubweiser did it to a MK1 a while back... looked really stupid, wasn't that cool.

That's what i was thinking i just wasn't sure if it was longitudal or transverse. I saw that rabbit and it looked like shit. I"m sure it moves but looked bad. Dahldach's was hot but if you notice in that the radiator and everything was movd to the rear to make room for the engine. That's probably the only way you'd get it in a jetta.
