I’ve had this Jetta for 17 years, I completely restored the exterior in 2012, that build thread is here: http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthread.php?5652224
About a year ago I got a Passat W8 Sport 4motion and absolutely love it. I was going to sell the Jetta or give it to my younger brother but recently I started SCCA Solo Autocross and decided to build my Jetta to race instead of the Passat. The AWD of the Passat convinced me to Syncro the Jetta with a BBM/G60 for the 16V to come next. Basically the car will become like a Golf Limited but with a trunk.
So, here we go, I bought a 1992 Passat Syncro in Canada for the drivetrain (everything is the same except the rear axle carrier mounts and the center driveshaft) and I bought a 1990 Golf Syncro in Germany for the fuel tank, trunk panel and center tunnel. This is over $4,000 so far, the shipping is killer.
Here are the parts I have so far. I don’t have a garage or shop (yet) so this will be a long project. I have to learn how to weld too. I’ll post updates as I go, this will be the build thread. When I’m finished with the Syncro conversion I’ll start another build thread for the 9A 2.0 16V G60 that I’ll do next. I want, in the end, an all wheel drive Jetta with about 300hp from the 16V with G60 supercharger.
The center propshaft is the same, its the 2 ends which are shortened!
Thank you, I have been misinformed but not to worry, I have all three from the red Golf Syncro also.
That front bar/cross member, can it be unbolted and removed?
yes. two 15mm bolts holdt it up
Thanks so much.
I acquired a Golf Syncro carpet for $200.
I got my Syncro dash badge from Germany today.
It took about a year but I finally have the Jetta Syncro boot.
Hello all, the Jetta Syncro that I sourced the bits from is VIN code WVWZZZ1GZLW142956. How do I know the year and month of production?
That did get me the year of production, 1990, thanks.
Jetta GTX 16V Syncro was my name on the old forum, this is my car.
