Rob, I am very surprised you found a 91 1.6TD (Eco
Diesel) motor before you came across a 1.6NA motor in
an older jetta or golf.  Seems a waste to use a TD
motor on something that needs a NA.

I think you said your other motor was 1.5L, not sure
if your NA intake and exhaust monifold from that head
will fit this 1.6 hydraulic lofter head?

1.6NA stuff should be easy to find to replace the TD
stuff.  The 1.6TD stuff has good value on e-bay and
may get 1/2 your money back that you baught the car
for if you are lucky.

About how much does the generator that actually makes
the power cost, just wondering?
