VW Rabbit 16V

Sup everyone.. nicer, cleaner new forums.. but to the point .. i looking at buying a VW rabbit and droping a 16v into it .. and i was wondering at how much labor ..and in the end how fast it might actually be.
Willing to take anyones insightful opinions..

If you drop a stock engine/tranny it should be running high 14s with no weight reduction.
With some cams, p&p'ed head, header, and good fueling they've gone mid 13s on slicks.

saying whats up to all the people that waste their life away here!

Anyway, my friend has a rabbit like that one, except the one pictured looks a lot better, anyway he droped a 16V in it, had some work done to fuel variation, suspension, also, had it tuned. His hitting mid 13s,
Pretty quick, now his thinking of a transplating the mkiv vr6 engine into it, and buying a supercharger. After everything said and done he should be hitting mid to low 11s. 1000lb car+vr6=fast vdub.

Rabbits are getting harder to find now days, it'll be hard to find one in good condition for a good price. 16v engines usually go for under $500 for the 2L's.
To answer your question about the labour:
The mechanical part can be done in a day or 2. Taking out the original engine won't take that long, a few hours with the proper tools.
You'll need scirocco 16v mounts and scirocco 16v exhaust manifold and downpipe
The wiring can be a bit of a bitch tho. If you get a 2L 16v and use the CIS-E Motronic injection that comes with it it'll be even harder. You can also use regular CIS-E that comes in scirocco 16v's, but it's meant for 1.8L's and runs lean up top, if you decide to use CIS-E, you'll also need the scirocco intake manifold, and you can make a fuel enrichement module which gives extra fuel @ WOT.
