Since there doesn't seem to be much traffic I thought I would post an  
update on my TDI into Caddy conversion.  The engine is in and the  
cable shifter has been connected to the 02A transmission and adjusted  
properly so that all gears engage smoothly.  Both half shafts are  
connected to the trans and the wheel hubs.  I am currently  
fabricating a downpipe and then I can finish the exhaust.  I am  
contemplating removing the stock fan and fan shroud and replace it  
with a large flat pusher fan on the front.  This will give me more  
room to mount the intercooler.  Check out my pictures on the Caddy  
transplant page of my webpage listed below.  More as the job  
progresses.  Hayden

"Dictatorships all have common factors:  a government controlled by  
one party, a leader who claims to have special powers outside the law  
to keep the country "safe", secret prisons where people are locked up  
without charges or trial and government opponents are branded as  
unpatriotic and charged with aiding the enemy."
