      Well finally begining my build.

      Starting off with an almost completely stock 1990 G60.
      Neuspeed Intake
      TT Stainless 2.25 Borla exhaust
      Black leather Swap
      Euro wheel
      Euro seat belts (not installed yet)
      Patec Coilovers

      Heres where this will be happening.

      Well I already had a Stage 4 g60 which was really fun but I want to go a different route this time. So bye bye g60.

      This is going to be replacing the PG.

      Tore that apart.

      Cleaned up the pistons.

      Going to need these:

      My dad had the shop built for this:

      The lift should help with this:

      Should be fun in the end

      Cleaned up the outside of the block, oil pan, valve cover. Bought another K03s and oil filter flange.

      Now I need valves and circle clips and i can put the motor together.
      Someone buy my g60 motor. I need money for valves

      Use the Mk4 TDI oil filter housing. It makes oil changes so enjoyable.

      Already bought another 1.8t one because mine was broken.

      Yeah when my dad got the building built, our township wouldn't allow trusses so we had to build a 2nd floor. The building just passes final inspection about a month ago so the outside stairs haven't been built yet.

      Update: Turbo is on and motor is almost fully together.

      I think I'm going to paint the non polished parts of the intake manifold black.

      Ordered a few more parts. Hopefully they will be delivered before next weekend.

      Yeah that might be something worth getting. Its the same as the 1.8t but upsidedown?

      would that really work on a 1.8T, i mean spacewise, there isnt really much room there?

      20V people sometimes upgrade to the taller 1.9 TDI block so i don't see whay it wouldn't be possible.

      i am very jealous of the garage...especially that i'm about the tear into mine

      looks like a sweet build

      Looking good so far! AWD eh?

      A lift is sure a nice thing to have (and help). I had to make due with neither so you have two up on me. Good luck.

      A life frittered away disgusts God; he loves those who run straight for the finish line.

      Update: Finally done with school for the summer. Got all the part so I can bolt the motor in

      New rear motor and trans mounts, and vr6 clutch:

      Solid front mount:

      Now I need to clean up the trans so I can bolt it up to the motor.
