Hi all,

I have a 2003 VW Jetta 1.8T for sale I intended to use for rallycross but have nowhere to put it now or way to move it as it was not put on the road. The car runs great but am hoping it can be used as I intended it to be. 700$, bring a trailer or a dolly. 1000$ and you get a 28mm rear sway bar, BFI Stage 2 Dogbone mount, and MK4 OEM snowboard/ski racks with keys (not installed). The car is at my friend's place in Scarborough.

The body has 340,000 km on it and engine was replaced by previous owner. It has some typical VW MK4 fender rust on it and has a small hole in the passenger side rear rocker. Strut towers are in good shape. Tires are no good.

- The interior is gutted (no airbags, dash still in place)
- Sunroof has been deleted and a metal panel riveted in.
- Passenger side and rear drivers windows are removed and have plexiglass windows. Front drivers window is still glass so the window can still go up and down. Drivers front is also the only door with a door card.
- Has only front seats, rears taken out.
- Battery is dead (suspect a good trickle charge will do the trick) but will start and stay running with a boost.
- Front brakes were upgraded to 312mm GLI brakes.
- Runs and brakes like a top, no CEL.

Engine code is AWP and has 270k on it. Belt/water pump have life left on them to the best of my knowledge. Upgraded inlet pipe is the only modification to engine to my knowledge. Clutch is strong. Please PM if interested!

I have a set of Team Dynamics Pro Rally 1 wheels with 3 good General Altimax RT43 tires mounted on them. The 4th tire has a puncture in the sidewall that I plugged as a temporary measure but the tire should NOT be used.

I don't have a tire tread gauge but you can see they look new with lots of tread left. DOT stamp show they were manufactured in 2017. I used these as a daily commuter to help absorb the bumps and potholes on our Toronto roads Smiley

The reason I'm selling is because I replaced them with a set of factory Subaru rims, as I trade in my car for something new soon.

Team Dynamics Pro Rally 1
Subaru fitment. 5x100 15x7 +40
Centre bore 56.1mm

The wheels will have some curb rash, but they are straight and have no dents/cracks in them.

General Altimax RT43
DOT 0217

Not looking to seperate them at the moment.


PM for link to more photos(board won't let me post url)

This is what it looked like the last time it competed:

probably still looks mostly the same.

Hi Folks!

Please share to anyone that might be interested.

Excellent super reliable rally car.  Needs work to get it running.

I've been out of country, and havent' seen the car in several years.  So I'm writing this from memory...  all this info is as accurate as I can remember.

When I moved away I was in progress of upgrading the Paseo into the best version of itself.  Best (non-turbo) motor, best gearbox, best suspension.  The only upgrade I never got around to was the rear discs.  Need to source those parts from a Starlet GT somewhere.

  • Car is in the middle of a JDM 5E-FHE motor swap.  Higher compression and stronger internals than stock motor.  Motor is mounted, but most things are not hooked up.
  • Megasquirt wired and mostly programmed.  Will need some debugging and tuning.  It should work, but has never actually run the car.  I put a lot of time into setting it up properly, and I can share all my notes (if I can find them)
  • Converted to wasted spark ignition, using stock toyota parts from JDM tercel... I think...
  • Stock wiring harness is almost completely uncut.  So can easily revert to stock ECU and Ignition if needed.
  • JDM gearbox, better ratios than USDM
  • 1/4" aluminum skidplate up front
  • steel skidplate under gas tank
  • Brand new HotBits custom gravel-spec suspension, never been run
  • Set of very well used HotBits street-spec suspension, probably needs a rebuild.  Only good for tarmac.
  • Seats and harnesses are expired
  • Tons of 14" MR2 wheels - these things are unbreakable
  • One set of 13" Tercel alloys, suitable for snow tires or 13" gravels (not for rough hard surface, I would only use them on soft ground)  Fine for snow or rallycross
  • probably a set or two of 14" steelies
  • almost all rims will have gravel or snow tires mounted.  But they will all be hard like hockey pucks by now.
  • Paseo brake hardware for the 14" wheels
  • Tercel brake hardware for the 13" wheels
  • Brake lines re-routed through interior
  • Fuel lines pulled from under car, but new lines not yet run
  • Big spares package, rad, headlights, taillights, mirrors, fenders, many random small parts
  • Probably needs a windshield

You will never find a car that is cheaper or easier to maintain than this.  It is so reliable and easy to work on.  I could run an entire season of stage rally without a service crew, everything on the car is so simple and reliable.  Nothing ever broke, unless I hit something.

Very easy to drive, very easy to maintain.  Perfect for any beginner or budget rally team.
It will definitely need some work and TLC to get it stage ready again.  Body and most parts should be pretty much rust free.  Most of the rust is probably underside of the floorpan.

I'll do a brain dump about everything I remember about this car, and everything I know about Paseo's in general.  And I'm always willing to answer questions if the buyer needs help putting it all back together.

Reasonable offers considered.
Located in North York

Car is up on stands, and not currently rolling.  So moving it could be a challenge.

Edit: Just looked through the logbook.  After 3 or 4 years in competition, the car has a nearly perfect finishing record.  It has only ever DNF'd once, on its second event because the clutch wore out.  Not broke, just wore out. It was the original clutch with 300k on it, and it wore down to nothing.
