radiator , It will do a fine job, trust me. Plus I have a mk1 badge I plan to sport for the mean while.

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.
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. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
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
$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.

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.

I will be in my wagon. You will know it. Lowered B5 with a mean front end.
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.

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.
