Volkswagen's GTI, Golf, and Jetta have long been favorites of sport compact performance enthusiasts. One reason is the cars' charisma. Another is the room Volkswagen engineers left for modification and customization.
In VW GTI, Golf, and Jetta, Mk III & IV — Find it. Fix it. Trick it., author Kevin Clemens tells the story of how these amazingly versatile vehicles came to be, then shows how to make them even better.
With engines ranging from the 2.0 liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder to the 1.8-liter turbo 4 to the VR6, the Mk III and Mk IV generations (1993-2004) offer tuners a wealth of opportunities.
This book turns these opportunities into realities, from deciding which vehicle to buy, to keeping it running in tip top condition, to enhancing the performance and appearance.
Focusing on the engine, wheels and tires, suspension, and more, each project includes straightforward instruction along with details about the necessary parts, cost, time, and skill.
