i had a buddy that had a baha bug with a 2.0l DOHC 16v cosworth on the back it was pretty cool .
i think if you can find the adapter plate for the engine you should be able to basically just bolt it in with the appropiate wiring mods of course
dont know for sure but.....

1 = 1.3$
And i just want the parts to install it so the 'box' is little
Anyway, I think buy in USA is really interesting today


I'm still thinking at this swap, i don't know if i will do it

Check out momenutum motorsports, I'm sure that they would be able to help you with a 1.8t into a mk1

FD in a bug would be cool, I didn't have the money though, so how about an FB (12a)
