Jason Crabtree A2 Golf TDI.
From tdiclub forum:
Well so far things are going well. The engine bay needs a damn good clean and the car needs a wash so I can inspect the body work and do some touch ups. I made the decision to run it in the winter so I must deal with the consequences. This isn't a show car (didn't win the lottery so can't afford to do that). The interior still needs to be completed which will be a spring job as it is too cold out.
This car hauls and I love it. Has a nice vibration to it at idle (although my better half doesn't like it). Since I only drive it the odd week night and on weekends, I'm still getting used to actually driving it but I smile every time I drive it and the fuel economy is icing on the cake.
The VR6 chin spoiler has a couple scrapes on in but is holding up. A little low and entering/exiting car parks must be taken with care.
A run down of non-standard equipment:
2.5" Scorpion twin DTM tip cat-back exhaust
11" front brakes (RPI Wilwood kit)
rear disc conversion (with cross drilled - overkill. love it )
25mm ABD front sway
28mm ABD rear sway
Neuspeed front strut brace
Hella blue rear lights
Euro fenders with blue side light
RPI twin 7" front euro lights
JOM badgeless grill
SWG grill spoiler
VR6 Chin spoiler
RPI K&N air filter and custom heatshield
Poly bushings on the front control arms and rear strut towers
Boge turbogas shocks
M3 repilca mirrors (with a cool blue tint)
15" VW Passat rims with snows
15" TSW Hock R's with 195/50 Pirreli P-700 (summer)
Oil: Mobile Delvac 1
Fuel: Sunoco diesel with Amsoil cetane boost & fuel conditioner (thanks Andy)
Jazz Blue paint
Things to come:
2.5" down pipe (details to follow)
Things I want but can't get due to morgage (grrrr.):
Upsolute tuning box (help Tazz out)
sachs power clutch kit
Things I would do if I won the lottery:
Remove engine and paint engine bay jazz blue as well.
That is pretty much it. I will be doing a sping cleaning (remove intercooler & plumbing to see how oily and need to replace dash bulbs) and hopefully put on a 2.5" downpipe. Have toyed with Upsolute chips, but right now no $$$. Donations gladly accepted.
Most work was done @ Ron's Parts (RPI) 604-944-0494. Thanks to Dustan, Andy, Warren and most of all Grame
Paint & Body work: Walkerton Auto Collision (Randy & Paul)
