Re: Longer front struts

You don't have to go for the adjustable so that'll be cheaper but the rebuildable could save you money in the long run.
Rear: you could use any old shocks
Front: your limited by the strut design. Maybe someone here can help you with part numbers of slightly longer units.

Re: Mk1 vit engine swap

Scottie,
Thanks for that.
Do you have the specs on the adapter bushing ? All dimensions ?
I'll look for the J18 flywheel part number & post it if I find it.

Which Bellhousing for the 2.0 conversion ? 2.0 or 1.6 ? Will the 1.6 bellhouse fit onto the 2.0 block ? Same bolt patterns ?
