Jetta Diesel in a 70' Charger?

Just got this idea one day watching a VW commercial,

what if you bought a new jetta diesel engine (and onther parts necissary to adapt it to he Charger of course) and modifyed it to fit a 1970 Dodge Charger? I don't know if this would be possible but it seems likeit could be.

post any comments on the idea of course but one thing I'm hoping to hear is some estimates on parts and total and parts cost.

Re: Jetta Diesel in a 70' Charger?

Well if I was to do it right I may be able to get 25-30 MPG outa it. Sure it would add up in the cash colum but as of now im just specilating. so if I could crank up the Jetta engine from 140 to maybe 300hp (this would be the hard part) and still get 20-25MPG 30 if you wana streach it, I'd see that as a nice rig.

Jetta Diesel in a 70 Charger

my friend has a 94 Jetta diesel Im contemplating purchasing, but the car does some funny things...when you put the key in the doorlock to turn it the windows roll down and sometimes do random things, and sometimes it seems like the starter kill doesnt disengage...like I say, fairly intermittent and random, but often enough to be cause for concern...anyone have any ideas?

Americans...

There is no reason for that, just buy a new car from fords or one of your car makers.
