Can somebody explain why you have to use the scirocco intake mani?
That's what I thought it was used for. Seems like it creates more problems than its worth just to keep a few stock parts. throttle body on the ps would make a front mount piping a lot easier. I've contemplated building a 16vg60 since I got my Corrado years go. Now I think I'm finally gonna jump in
i would love to do this with my golf, but there are some drawbacks for me
i've got most the parts to do it, the real pain would be the exhaust manifold. it would be too pricy to get one custom made, and getting a Limited manifold just won't happen
sometimes it sucks having a syncro
16vG60 syncro on MS would be fun in the winter
just save more money. don't not do it just because of a manifold. took me 3 years to save up and buy parts for my syncro 16vt project, but i had a kid and it went on the back burner.
either way it will be done when it gets done. motors in and engine management wired soon. most of plumbing done. I found a guy that did a manifold for my syncro for pretty cheap. log style but still. people out there make them, and i got in done in the US. If someone had the specs here, someone has it over seas for sure
I'm building my 16VT for 5 years now...
It's gonna have all I want, or nothing.
Does anybody have a set of water pump and power steering pulley spacers they don't need? I can't find any and BBM doesn't carry them anymore.
Sorry, it's a one-off. I'm not certain I'll use it however. My 16V G60 syncro uses a Scirocco exhaust manifold bolted to a modified Rallye DP. Just looking at the Scirocco manifold, I think it might flow better than the fabbed up one. I need to investigate this further, just haven't had the time lately...
please do the manifold is mainly what keeps me back from doing this, the rest is easy to come by (atleast here in europe)
a kit from Huber Rennsport isnt very expensive, and contains the bracketry and a SRI intake (if you don't go with the scirocco style inlet)
That's about it... you either need a custom exhaust manifold or a custom down pipe. No factory pieces to make it work aside from the VWMS exhaust manifold used on the Limited.
I gotta say tho, the shop that modified my Rallye DP to work with the Scirocco 16V exhaust manifold and tie into the twin cats didn't have much trouble with it, and it came out great...
Heads up..., we are planning a sale on the last of our BBM 16v ltd. packages early next year.
Will be under $1k or 200-300 $$$ off
Happy Holidays from all of us at BBM
