Sooooooo. i happen to have some spare time today to turn wrench on my drag rabbit. and today i installed this kit. i was running a very custom, electric water pump and 16 volt no-alternator setup on my drag rabbit this season. but charging up between rounds is a hassle. so i had to find another solution. i have been talking with Issam about this setup for awhile now, and finally did it.
the parts he sent me are without equal. the machining, everything was perfect.
i chose to go the route of the spacer and the MK4 06A balancer. i have a couple of those so it was easier/cheaper for me. and the motor is an AEB hybrid in a MK1 rabbit. right now its over 550 WHP, but who is counting? it runs a low 11 sec 1/4 mile, and that is with the tires spinning for 2/3rds of the track, and traps 130's.
enough of the selfish banter, on with the pictures. everyone likes those.... haha.
cute little spacer installed on the crank pulley, with the 06A 1.8T balancer.
the water pump assembly with the optional VR6 aluminum water pump pulley
and the setup mounted, belted, adjusted, and ready to rock. here is a few different views for this. and yes, i do have a pink motor. when you run what i do, and have power like i do, you can rock that with no recourse. until you can beat me, you have not much to say.
and yes, the most powerful MK1 Rabbit GTI in the whole entire PNW rocks INA alternator kit. also, some other parts from Issam, like the BF tubular manifold, AGN smoothie valve cover, some 034 tidbits as well, etc.
and for what its worth, the whole new race motor bottom end is being put together by INA.... but that is a post on its own.
notice, plenty of clearance for the 007 Largeport manifold....
