      The No reservoir radiator right? I have a 79 with that style.

      I am using the one from my GLI that had A/C for the larger volume. I also have a Saab Blackstone Intercooler.

      OK, got cam to work. Weld pics:


    10. 06-27-2007 12:45 AM #80
      yea, my front mount kinda interfered with the size, but am am not worried one bit. I have a great push fan with a great shroud so it will be fine. BTW my cat has 3 O2 sensors. 2 stock and 1 for an air/fuel ration guage. Did'nt want to pigy back noe of the O2's as the voltage is already so small and I wanted the computer to have the best reading possible.

      You have a Mig or Tig welder? If so I may have to borrow it....

    12. 06-27-2007 12:49 AM #82
      Nah, I had to go to the local muffler shop. I only have rod and gas, otherwise I would have done it myself. Then again, its always nice having a proffesional job done. Remember, that is a 3" high flow cat. I recycled old cat flanges of my older vw cats. Cut them off with the good ol' blow torch

      How much did it cost for them to do the welding?

    14. 06-27-2007 12:56 AM #84
      $45, I pre drilled all of the holes but he did an awesome job. They are mild steel welds, but I just painted over the IC pipe on the spots where it was welded so it won't rust. As far as I'm concerned he did more work than what I paid him. Great guy, I'll be heading over to him for the 3" cat back in the next week or so... whenever the car is road worthy. I have a lot of soldering to do. Then after the exhaust I'm off to the deq.

    15. 06-27-2007 12:58 AM #85
      break down on the welds: 2 O2 bungs, 2 cat flanges, and 2 IC pipe flanges stitch welde. The others were done with mig.

      Thats pretty good deal. Small circular welds can be a pain especially on such thin material.

    17. 06-27-2007 01:03 AM #87
      yea, I wasn't sure if he would be able to do the IC piping, but he impressed me with his skills. Not many muffler shops can weld that thin of stuff.

    18. 06-27-2007 01:06 AM #88
      Here is the front mount if you want to get an idear:

      The car will need body work in the future, but right now I'm just trying to get her in good enough condition to take to WW.

      I need to get everything in there before I figure out where and How I am going to make the Blackstone IC work for me.

    20. 06-27-2007 01:10 AM #90
      I will probably be organizing a drive up from the first rest stop in WA the morning of WW. Maybe I will meet you then.

      Yea, my original plan was just to use the stock 1.8t SMIC but I bought this core with the engine, and late at night one cold winter night, I figured why not play around. Busted out the grinder and got started on my FMIC . I must say, piping did run my a little more than I orininally forsaw.

      Nice work, Stu! Those are just teaser pictures that you have posted. I want to see detailed pictures of the entire front end and engine bay. Those welds look great and the flanges on the IC pipes look really good as well. Nice work all around. The white engine cover also looks good with the white core support and car. Once you get everything cleaned up I want to drive out to your shop and take a look at your work. Congrats man

      I bet that slow white Golf will also give my '03 1.8T GTI that is chipped a run for its money.

      I thought i might have a sleeper until I started it up today.
      But lets keep it as a surprise. I will probably just keep at the end of the pack for a while and try to look as slow as possible .

      To tell you the truth, your gti probably wouldn't have a chance. (maybe we will have a chance at racing at PIR later in the summer, August?) I'll really work on the sound or video bit for tomorrow guys. It always really motivated me when I saw things like that when I was building my car.

      Yeah I have a buddy that sold his, but he had a 2dr Golf with an AWP in it, thing was crazy.

      Yup. I worked with him and BondoBoy and a few others on here too. I got them all their Jobs. But his was in Limp mode pretty much the entire time and it was still awesome.


    32. 06-27-2007 02:38 AM #102
      yea I bought my O2J tranny from him. I hope it is perfect like he says. Seems like a pretty cool cat so I trust him. Will find out in the next day or so. Yea, his main problem was that he was running the wrong software with the car. I believe he had an AWW ECU in his AWP. On the other hand I think vrrrr has fixed her up right by now.

    33. 06-27-2007 02:40 AM #103
      Its kinda funny how many guys it took to get that car running. Not in a bad way or anything, just shows the difficulty in the swap especially when using stock electricals

      Is your O2J in? if so Can I get picks of your shifter placement? that is what I am currently trying to do now.

      Plus I am still unsure of the bracket for the master cylinder mount. I need the G60 mount w/o ABS and I want to know what Front Motor Mount bracket you used also.

      Yeah BondoBoy (Chris) fabbed up the steering column to be able to still use the stock rack with the mkIV ignition so Immob was still in place.

      that is another reason I am happy with an AEB. NO IMMOBILIZER.
