      No, it was a Vinyl textured square cut down to size. They turned out quite well but were not conducive to daily driving in traffic

      ok thanks. im still in high school and im wantin to turbo my jetta but i have a tt 260 cam in it. is it alright for me to run that cam if i turbo it and whats better to peice a turbo system together or buy a kit because im on a tight budget.

    4. 09-03-2008 11:45 PM #39
      thats the perfect cam for it.
      i built mine from scratch but id say buy a used kit.. check the forums on hee in both forced induction classifieds and your cars classifieds.. there is a complete kit for like 850 on here shipped plus you will need the injectors and chip from c2 and install it and your done.

    5. 09-04-2008 12:25 AM #40
      ok thanks man. how big of injectors should i run cause this is gonna have to probably be daily driven.

      Love this ride, one of my fav all time colors "ginster". And the aba in my opinion the most economical and reliable engine ever offered by vw. Plenty of power and reliability for the street. Props to BFI Whats up Adam? It's Joey from IMPEX. See ya at H20 brotha!!!

      I'm getting started-
      Here's the "donor"
      (pic below in after/before shots)

      Already did the Cup Kit (SS), so I'm working in an upgrade clutch for the ABA (BFI has it!), and replacing ther rear drums with discs. Got a set of lights ordred a la MkIV, and have already stripped the interior. I should've bought all these parts when you were in Atlanta for DubFest III!

      Thanks for the "prototype"!

      were can i get one of those 2 piece badgeless grills?

    11. 11-12-2008 02:38 PM #46
      The grille pictured is not a two piece grille, but rather has been masked and painted body color. You can find it listed on our website HERE

      Nice work guys. This is a "model" of sorts for TGHP (The Green Hornet Project) which is our club car. Started life as an ugly stock 98:

      After some of our mods:

      BEFORE any TLC:

      Thanks for the inspiration!

      OK guys, start making that 25mm RSB again. I need one for track days!

      SO far, we've got the following:
      cup kit (60/40)
      rear disc brake and axle swap
      stripped
      new axles up front
      polys
      swiss cheese
      TMT cup mirrors
      yadayada- more to follow

      Your pic needs to be on a hosted site that is web-accessible. You can't just "link" to a file on your PC. Use the IMG code button above the edit box (the little mountain and sun icon button). Insert the URL of your graphic and VOILA!

      Some host sites:
      http://www.photobucket.com
      http://www.tinypic.com
      http://www.fotki.com

      Did you guys take that 'after' picture in Charlotte?

      This car is inspiration for me to keep my mk3. I originally bought it strictly as an engine swap for my mk2, but now I am thinking otherwise...Looks amazing!

      so if i bought that euro rad support, do i need the euro bumpers to fit, or can i keep my US spec item with no extra gap ?

    21. 05-20-2009 12:13 PM #56
      You can retain the US bumpers and rebar with a euro rad support

      Hey I was just over at your shop last week picking up some Jetta GT wheels for my beater/Daily driver. Did you guys swap in an O2A trans or are you still using the 020 trans?

    27. 08-26-2009 05:32 PM #62
      The car is now for sale as well:

      Very impressive car. In the eurotuner pictures the right headlight needs alignment though:p.
      Would you guys share with us whats the budget on the car so far (just in parts, with parts priced as they are on the BFi site)?
