to be honest I don't have a budget, as I am new to all this, so I'm trying to gain as much knowledge and info as possible. whats the average cost usually ?
Obs, I don't wanna spend thousands. But I do want to do it correctly.

Theres people sell everything youll need for 500 out of a doner car
Then its upto you what you want to change
A downpipe will set you back 150 unless you can weld
Exhaust is what ever people charge
Kntercooler ans pipe work 200ish
Cambelt kit and water pump 150
Clutch (solid flywheel conversion) 200ish
Wiring your time and patience

Youll spend over 1000 unless you buy a full 1.8t and use what ypu need and sell the rest pluss the bits of the mk3 ypu dont use.

Plus if you can't spanner yourself then it'll cost a lot more.

I would be confortable do a lot of the work myself, welding isn't an issue, I can do this also. its the wiring, and ensuring I have everything needed is where Id panic lol

Wiring isnt that bad. Ce2 to 20vt is al9t easier than ce1 to 20vt but mk3 is ce2.
People charge i think around 150 to make the looms and then the ecu just needs deimobilising
