Yep, where are you located and how much for the engines?

I am in Vestal, NY (outside of Binghamton, NY). I am looking for $50 for the 8V and $100 for the 16V. I have more history with the 16V as I was the 2nd owner of the car and there are 188K miles on it with about $20 on the head gasket (leaking coolant out the back of the head and the engine never over heated) and timing belt. 8V is free rotating but I do not have any idea of actual condition other than it ran when remove from the car.

Just realized that I have a set of snowflake wheel from ,84 GTI with Azenis 215s in the loft. Tires are a little old but $50 will take them home - wheels too.

Along with those is a set of OLD OZs with wornout tires. They are 4x100 with unknown offset. I would give them to any takers to free up garage space.

I posted the info in a follow-up post. As I am remembering parts I am adding them to the list.

What do the OZs look like?

They are a multi-spoke design similar to a BBS. They are a little rough but nothing a little elbow grease and paint couldn't fix. I will try and get some pics as soon as I can get at them ... gotta get the MR2 suspension done so I can move it out of the garage to access the loft.

In reply to jotavw13: Will you consider shipping at all? If so, I need a price + shipping to 27610( a home business if it matters... ) for the 16V.

Thanks

I would prefer not to ship but I will look into finding a shipping method in my area to get a quote.

If the deal with mrwillie falls through, I may be next in line

If everything else falls through I am interested in the 16v and both sets of wheels. Does the 16v have the engine wiring with it?

The wheels are still available and I should be able to get pics of the wheels this week and I will post as soon as I do.

The engine does not have a harness with it. The original plan was to stuff it into a rabbit pickup and use a stand alone engine management so I didn't think to pull it.

Thanks, I saw your e-mail last night. I won't be able to make it up there before the weekend of the 17th, is that cool? Otherwise if you have a local buyer or a guaranteed sale, I won't mind if you sell the engine.

Will send my contact information later today.

I am mainly interested in the wheels. Just post some pics whenever you get some time and we can work something out. I live around york, PA and it looks like it will be about a 3.5 hour drive. I probably won't be able to come up for a few weeks if that is ok.

Not a problem. I would be willing to meet you part way for pick up if you would like. Just need to coordinate everything with life as we just brought our second child home yesterday! I will try to get the pics soon.

That sounds great. What size are the OZ wheels?

I also found a pair of fenders that are fairly clean, a few radiator shrouds, a radiator from an 8V, and a rear trailing arm from a 16V scirocco. I also that the 16V lower strut brace (stock unit).
