It's essentially the VW HT motor (100-102 HP rated, 107-108 ft-lb, CIS-E,
10:1 compression, hydraulic lifters, knock sensor, right?), with some
re-arranging to make it north-south (IM, EM, ancilliaries). Don't know
how the altenator is attached, as I have a GTi, but the timing belt is
MUCH simpler than the I-5. As for the AC belt, the adjuster on my GTi is
right on the compressor, just loosen the upper braket bolt, the lower
pivot bolt and adjuster lock nut and it should move.
