Talking I Know, I know, not a MBZ...but still...

I just picked up a sweet 1991 Jetta Turbo Diesel 5 Speed. Oh man I wish I had a working Digi right now. This turbo sedan is bone stock and looks new inside and out. It may not be a Benz but its still a German Diesel and it shows! I can't believe how much power they got out of this little 1.6L engine. I cruised 50mi. and the needle hasn't moved a millimeter!

GERMAN DIESELS RULE!

Nein sagt dieses ein gemacht in Deutschland.

"The Jetta GL ECOdiesel was sold for two "model years", 1991 and 1992. But in both cases it did not enjoy a full 12 months' stay on the showroom floor. The ECOdiesel first arrived in the spring of 1991, and a total of about 750 ECOdiesels were sold in the 1991 model year. All of them were manufactured in VW's home factory in Wolfsburg, Germany, following the tradition of previous diesel-powered Jettas which were also made exclusively in Germany. 1991-model Jetta ECOdiesels were available in a full spectrum of colors, including green, blue, gray, white, red, and black -- all with gray velour seats and black dashboards.

Unfortunately for the ECOdiesel, German production of A2-series Jettas stopped shortly after the 1992 model year began in mid-1991, as the factory was switching over to production of the new A3-series Golfs and Jettas. So, if VW's records are correct, only 47 -- yes, that's forty-seven -- 1992-model Jetta ECOdiesels were made! Although the exact color distribution amongst these 47 cars is unknown, most of them are black, with a few gray ones and a few red ones."

By the way where did you get the parts for your intercooler setup on your vdub? What size piping did you use 2" or 2.5". Thanks.
