I paid $285 shipped from eBay for an 08 Jetta engine with 96k miles. Alan and I took the oil pan off and itís super clean.

$330 for the complete 25k mile engine. I picked it up yesterday. It looks good, but who knows... it’s from a salvage yard, and the car is gone already.

The last one I bought was a local CL find. I think he said it had 124k miles. Looking at the cylinder bores and cam surfaces, it did not have any visible wear. I think these are good little engines. The only reason I picked up a second engine is I prefer the updated timing chain setup, and when I put a TTRS forged crank in it, it will have the 8-bolt flywheel mounting pattern. It’s a lot more money for that crank (~$1000 extra), but in the grand scheme, not a huge difference for the extra piece of mind.

I’m going to run the 124k engine in a Chumpcar (or endurance racing of some sort).

www.car-part.com is a good way to search salvage yards for these engines, btw... that's how I found mine.

$2-300 is a good price for a "toy" engine just to tear down and learn everything about the design and use for fitment.
but for a lower miles running pullout? holy crap batman.

Nice! I just got my website updated with info about all of the swap parts. I will be putting installation instructions there in the coming days/weeks.

Jeff, sorry I haven't gotten back to you about this yet. I had to skip a couple "garage nights", but I think I'll be at my buddy's shop this Wednesday. So, I'll try to get you some answers about fitting the 07K in the back of an old 911. I will probably follow up with you via PM to keep this thread more focused on the 944 07K stuff.

- iAbed billet valve cover
- iAbed billet PS pump mount and my 944-specific bracket
- bell housing
- pilot bearing adapter
- intake manifold
- exhaust manifold
- modified stock oil pan (not incl. core charge).

A la carte pricing (like if you don't buy the whole kit at once) will probably be slightly higher, but nothing crazy.

I think the cost of a turbo 07K swap is going to be very competitive with an LS swap of comparable hp. Obviously, an NA swap will be thousands less unless you dive into modified internals like that 9000 RPM IE engine...
Hey vt951, count me in for any future group buys. Chasing the oil leaks is like playing whack-a-mole and if I am going to pull the engine might as well upgrade.

That was sort of my thought process as well. Like, I couuuld rebuild the top end of my NA 2.5, but at what cost? More oil leaks, unreliable crumbling plastic parts, and old/outdated everything else? I'd have to pull mine as well to do a valve job, so this is an investment I couldn't pass up.

I was working on a 1.8t swap of my own when I found out about this one . Needless to say I dropped the 1.8t all together 😆

Alan, I received the parts for the swap and a gotta say they look great! Probably the best parts on the car

Now I just gotta find an engine. Keep up the great work!

Finnding an engine is the easy part! I would suggest an 08-10, but thatís just my .02

Mines a 2010, would highly recommend anywhere in that ball park. Waaaay less rust, and if you pull it yourself you have the added benefit of potentially less miles.
