Project Fox: Watch Us Swap in the Jetta Engine

Update by David S. Wallens to the Volkswagen Fox project car
Jan 30, 2020

Ever wanted to be a fly on the wall during one of our project car builds? Join us in the shop as we make a big decision regarding our Fox: replace the engine.

Why a new engine?

"Because this one sucks.”

That’s right, time to give our 1993 VW Fox Lemons racer a new engine. Where do you find an engine for a VW Fox? How about a crappy Jetta. 

Does that engine just jump into a Fox, especially one that’s been touched by various people possessing various skill levels? Of course not. 

There are all sorts of wiring and fitment issues to sort. And then there’s the excitement of accidentally forgetting to drain the oil before knocking the pan to the ground. Yeah, sometimes stuff happens. 

Will the Jetta engine come to life in its new home?

Watch and find out.
