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.

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

Lukes GTi winter build 72652_315197828610002_76389158_n


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 Lukes GTi winter build 036
