Thanks for the compliments. My paint isn't super but its not bad for a car with 155k on it.
Nothing new this week - I'll be on vacation for a week, once that's done my evenings and spare time will be fully devoted to getting this done.
Well here's some shots of the pistons in the block, the crank as well. Things are coming along with the project - still shooting for an end of August install.
Pistons in block
Bottom end with oil pump in place
Close up of knife edging on crankshaft with ARP main studs and rod bolts.
You can see the drilled journals which is for further weight reduction of the crank

Come wearing kevlar, my bedroom window is over the driveway, I don't miss from it.
Well folks, this weekend the motor gets situated into the car for intake and header mockup - look for pics on Sunday.
Well after some little delays - you'd be amazed this swap has parts from every watercooled engine VW has sold in the US - 8v, 16v, VR6, TDI and 20v.
Here's some more shots -

Looking up into the motor on the lift.
Hey, I still have that header for you. There is just no chance I am going to make it out in the evening to meet up, baby boy is proven to be quite a handful in the evening/night. It's here at the house if you want to make a run to come get it some time. [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

What frame is this going in?What are you doing for ITB's?Want to buy my set up?
It's going into a 4 door mk3. I already have 4 - 45mm ITB's - I used to run my 8v on them, but of course the 8v couldn't utilize them fully, this 20v should.
Oh, you used to have an 8v? I think i saw your car on the dyno at NGP. I had the green corrado that was going on after yours with Kevin B. tuning it. Setup looks good man. Keep it up
