well i have like 2 other threads going, stanceworks and vwvortex, but i figured id make another one for you guys lol as some of you this used to be Travis' car. while he owned it i helped him install koni yellow shocks and h&r race springs, as well an APR 3" id exhaust. this is how the car stood when i bought it.



as of now the car is in my garage pretty torn down. currently working on a wire tuck and shaving the bay. in order to keep the wiring uniform i purchased a 2nd harness to add to where i needed to extend the wires. heres where im at as of now




all the body harness wires pulled through the firewall


staying organized




will be putting in a custum catch can to prevent this






abs wires will be some of the only visible once finished


all the wires inside pulled up and routed. all thats left is to run the drivers side wires through the frame


im going to school at UW Milwaukee right now so im only home every other weekend to wrench on it so progress is slow. im hoping to be rolling by automotion, but i dont know if that'll happen. guess we'll see. stay tuned

UPDATE finally...

ive strayed from my plan. logan got new driveline, ryans crx will be quick, tims quick.. im not doin this low and slow shit so im putting this on




wont be doing rods until next winter though so the boost will stay turned down for now to keep it at about 270-280 whp.

going to partially black out my headlights to look like the sportwagen lights


currently how they are


also looking forward to getting that bee out of there.. its beyond me how it got in there lol :screwy:

got all the emissions pulled off the engine


will be getting the motor all cleaned up next time im home.. it needs it


going to polish these :laugh: as well as the rear wheel for my buddies Honda Ruckus lol


not a whole lot has changed with the bay.. still will be getting somewhat shaved. just will be a more OEM+/racecar-ish-y look instead of being perfectly smooth and clean.

What kind of power numbers are you looking to make this year? Or is it a secret?

lol no secret. due to the fact that im on a college budget im having to keep my internals stock for this summer. stock rods will hold 270ish ftlbs so ill be at exactly that. i have a spare bottom end that im going to start building as soon as the cars running, so for next summer ill be much higher.

ill be down for races for sure this summer though. ive never drove a BT vw so i have no idea how "fast" the car will be, but im sure many will be more than happy to help me find that out Smile

UPDATE
didnt get a whole lot done this weekend due to the fact i had to replace ball joints and front brakes in the daily. buttt heres the :pic:!

interiors still a mess. i decided to keep the fcm in the factory prostate exam so i need to pull those wires back through from the rain tray now.


finally got the whole in the frame to run wires through. my engine harness quick disconnect came too so i need to get some delphi pins and get that put together


all the magic cock pony that wont be going back on


finally got this darn thing on the stand. time to clean it and get out the broken exhaust manifold stud


my donor harness' and the AWP that will someday hopefully be alive again


my nasty trans. really need to get it cleaned up and my buddy convinced me to have it looked at after i explained my shifting issues ive had


i have too much stuff lol this summer im going to build shelves and a wrap around work bench so i have more area. plus setup my surround sound


figured id show the daily a little love since i spent most of saturday working on it


my mascot introducing:
Buster!



so my tax return wasnt at all what i predicted it to be.. so im in a bit of a money crunch right now.. im exploring a few options but i dont know if ill go with them yet. worst case scenario i buy as many turbo parts as i can and start working on the AWP and just build a complete motor to swap in but i guess we'll see

updates. shes really coming along
great. probably the cleanest its been since the car was new haha



i also finally took the time to route my batter cable to the trunk


i ran it behind the panels in the rear and along the door sill with the rest of the harness. im assuming thats how most people do it.


both the drivers side and passengers side headlight harnesses are finished as well now.







little teaser of the intake...


have the body harness all extended. all i need to do is run it and connect it inside the car


EVAP lines capped off





going to head to the auto parts store now to pic up the new tank for the power steering and some various other supplies. things are going fast now. hopefully everything will get pinned up in the next few weeks



lighst went from this



to this







going to wet sand the lenses with some 800 grit to clear up the pitting but othe than that they good to go
