1991 Volkswagen Jetta GLI VR6

This is my 1991 Volkswagen Jetta GLI. This car started life as a GLI 2.0L 16V which was top-of-the-line at the time. The car now has a 2.8L VR6 engine swap, or much greater horsepower and torque.
This car has been relisted due to a non-responsive, on-paying bidder last time. Please do not bid if you are not prepared to pay and follow through with the purchase.
This is a well-done, lean and tidy VR6 swap that is reliable and runs/drives perfectly. This is anything but a "hack job", nstead great care was taken to make this car as practical and driveable as possible while still upgrading the drivetrain to more powerful components.
MK2 GLIs are becoming hard to find in any condition. These classic VWs have become sought-after collectibles.
This car is fast, un and drives well. It is smooth, owerful and sounds great.
The following is a description of the car and it's components:
  • 2.8L VR6 swap with 144K. Tuned and chipped. Cylinder head was rebuilt at time of swap.
  • 5-speed manual transfrom MK3 GTI VR6
  • Rust-free solid and super clean MK2 body, o rust, lean floors/towers
  • Porsche phone dial wheels with brand new tires
  • Perfect Recaro seats, o rips
  • Brand new interior carpet
  • Rare factory power windows and locks, oth working
  • Factory sunroof
  • MK3 gauge cluster with all gauges working (144K)
  • Magnaflow dual exhaust
  • Sony AM/FM/CD with AUX input
  • Working lights, ignals, tc.
This GLI runs and drives perfectly. The VR6 engine rips and car is FAST. The 5-speed trans shifts perfectly, he clutch is strong, nd all shift synchros are good. There is no timing chain noise. The Magnaflow dual exhaust sounds great. Good brakes. The car is reliable, tarts/runs/drives/steers/stops perfectly. I would drive it anywhere. No check engine light on. Working heat and ventilation. 4-lug axles with adapters for Porsche wheels.
You will not find a cleaner MK2 GLI body anywhere- this body is super clean, olid and nice. This car looks excellent for the age. The paint is clean and shiny with good paint quality.
The interior is in excellent condition. The carpets are all new and the Recaro seats are in superb condition with basically no wear. This interior is very, ery nice.
This car has a clean and clear OH title ready to transfer. The mileage on the engine/transmission/odometer is 144,028. The mileage on the body and title reads 176,000.
This is a 22-year old car that is very nice but it isn't perfect. Fussy people look elsewhere- if you want it to be perfect it will take some work, owever I drive it exactly the way it is. Keep in mind that just like any 22-year old car it will require maintenance and money to keep on the road- do not spend every last dollar of your automotive budget on the car with nothing left over. The car is totally reliable, ependable and runs perfectly and I would not hesitate to get in and drive anywhere. Cons: squeaky clutch pedal (clutch is fine- just a squeaky pedal), o sunroof interior headliner panel plus sunroof scrapes a bit when opening, ome nicks, hips, cratches and brushtouched spots on exterior plus a ding on the leading edge of the left front fender, o plastic ignition column cover, mall exhaust leak at downpipe (sounds great), light wheel bearing noise on right front, o spare tire cover board, he passenger side front window will bind up sometimes when opening/closing- adjust it by hand and it is fine. Again, ot a perfect car but quite a nice example and a very good starting point. Sold as-is with no warranty.
This is an excellent example of a classic MK2 with a VR6 transplant.
