      Hello folks..
      I`m a new to this forum,but thought that I could share my mk1 project with you other "einser" freaks... OK,my english sucks...
      I bought this car April 05, it has been through some small modifications since then...


      This is from last summer....With FK coilovers and 195/45 on RH Cup 7x15 rims..

      Nowadays my car is in the garage for a complete build up...
      My following plans are:

      Chassis:

      - Removing all of the rust.
      - Inner- and outer channels(?) and the floor plates on the front is being replaced with new ones..
      - FK Highsport coilovers
      - Polyurethane bushings all over
      - Roll cage

      Engine:

      - PG engine w/83 mm bore
      - Ross Racing forged pistons
      - 8v GTI cylinder head w/ mechanical lifters and custom cam
      - Digifant 1 w/ SNS chip
      - Garret T3 Super60

      Drivetrain:

      - 02A Gear box from Corrado
      - drive axles from Golf Cab w/ 100 mm flanges


      Here is some pictures of how it's standing right now:

      What's that gaping hole in the side of the block for? It's into the coolant jackets in the block.

      Hmm, looks like that hole is supposed to be there on the PG blocks, but nobody is sure why.

      Here`s some more...

      Some of the parts glass-blasted...
      I`m not going to use this flywheel since it`s from a 16v

      Did some mods to my G60 speedo....

      The result:

      The next mod to this one is the lightning with blue LEDS

      It's definitely supposed to be there on PG blocks. I learned this about a year ago when I did a G60 swap. The G60 comes with a factory block off plate right there and that large O-ring. To get this into the mk1 you have to stack the passenger side mount ON TOP of the other plate and bolt it together. I also had a little issue with clearancing on the intermediate gear so a little clearancing was needed.

      Anyway...back to the project.

      It looks great! Can't get enough of them

      I want to use a x-flow head,but its not very easy gettin those heads here in norway...But right now i`m without a cyl.head to fit the engine,so maybe i should go x-flow??
      Is it just to put it right on the PG block or do i need other parts for the change?

      Not much updates lately,but now i`ve sold my Fk highsport gewinde...
      A complete poly kit and H&R coilovers will be ordered as soon as i have got the money...

      I am going to rip off the original door panels and the ones in the back,and replace them with custom made carbon fibre plates...

      Where can I get a carbon fibre hood?

      Fun looking project!

      Is that cluster from a FI car? As in the fuel mileage will read out accurately even when under boost?

      In lack of interest, and need for more power and more space..

      Think it has been running about 200tkm`s and looks like its in very good condition, and no leaks..

      Got me som new/used parts these days:

      16V rear disc brakes, a bit rusty but in "good" condition..

      New Inner housing for the 02A tranny:


      Thats all for now,maybe a new update tomorrow...
