      the big three and a deere
      01-05-2006 11:01 AM #1
      Been looking through everybody elses buildups, figured it was time to show mine.

      Here it was about 5 years ago before i owned it.
      it was pretty much built for track use.

      as it sat about 6 months ago in my garage.





      here it is about a month ago when i started to strip it:










      as of now the body is more stripped, i have started on shaving the engine bay and am also cleanign up the floor pan and such.

      Engine:

      its a 9A 16v.
      the bottom end has to following done to it:
      -bored to 2.1l
      -knife edged crank
      -h-beam con-rods
      -vw oversized (1mm) pistons
      -high volume oil pump

      soon to be installed:
      -vwms windage tray and oil pan
      -new water pump
      -all stainless allen head hardware.

      here is the head i will be using


      i have the following for it:
      -cat cams 268 cam-set
      -supertech sport valvesprings
      -lightweight lifters


      and it will be getting rebuilt with a mild porting+ polishing job.

      i'm going to be running a set of Weber DCOM's (the newer dcoe's)
      and a euro non-cat dual downpipe with a eurosport 16v exhaust.
      the tranny is a O2A out of a passat 16v, i have the full cable shift setup ready to go in. i also have a lightened G60 flywheel and sachs VR6 clutch kit thatw ill be used i it.

      Suspension/brakes


      -FK 60/40(in the works)
      -Full poly bushing kit(already on)
      -rear neuspeed 28mm sway bar(already on)
      -FK front and rear strut tower tie bar(in the works)
      -Neuspeed k brace (front lower)(already have it.)
      -4 wheel discs 8.9's+9.1's all brembo rotors and PBR pads(will be all new)


      i will be using a set of mint p-slots(in one of the photo's up top.)
      the interior will be getting a mint Cabby dash, no center console a mahogany wheel and some form of low back buckets.

      updates will follow as i progress.

      W.O.W. Nice. What are the seats you've got there?

      This is basic Scirocco trivia I really ought to know *hangs head in shame* but what is the body kit showing in the first picture?

      those wheels look really good without tires

      how much weight can be saved by removing the body putty? Particular in the front fenders?
      "Mods": Clean EGR/intake manifold/snow screen. New MAF/N75/VNT/Vacuum lines/Air filter. VNT moves freely from 3 to 18.5 in-mg.

      i was just test fitting the wheels.
      as far as the body putty, i'm just making sure ther is no hiding rust, as i want to fix it right.
      i'll be putting on more seam sealer after.

      Did some work this weekend. big thanks to matt(91gtx) for all his help.
      welded in soem patches, reinforced the floor, cleaned all the factory seam sealer and such.
      pics for view:


      then i used this stuff:

      and it gave me this after the first coat.


      now i have to wait 72 hours, appply the second coat of rust bullet. then i can put some new seam sealer where needed, then from there i will put the Brown Bread i bought in.(sound deadening)

      I think it's a good idea, but how much does all that weigh?

      thanks for all the motivating comments guys.
      i used a whoel 50ft roll, the roll itself weighedt 9.5 lbs in shipping. so i added 9.5 lbs to the car to make it much more quiet and driveable.
      plus without the backseat or heater or fuel injection its lighter anyways.

      no hurry the hell up and finish it

    18. 01-24-2006 10:55 AM #18
      only 9.5 pounds? I was sure that stuff weighed more when I was looking at it. Was be-quiet easy to work with?

      I've heard from several people that sound deadening is one of the best mods they've done. Not only did it make the car much more quiet, it made it feel solid in the process. Obviously it's just perception, but I've heard nothing but good things, and I wouldn't mind another few pounds in my car to make it that much more enjoyable!

      Did you do the roof as well? Double layer the wheel arches?

      Superb work, can't wait to see the finished product.

      Nothing to do with your car but that "VWMS windage tray" is actually a standard VW part. It's from a mk3 Golf diesel and is otherwise known as a "restrictor" - costs about £30 over here.
