      Despite the lack of updates, Alexi, Bryce and I have been working hard on this project. We've pretyy much spent the past month cleaning each individual part, bolts and accessories using a wire brush and gave them bling bling make over with a fresh coat of paint for your viewing pleasure!
      And here we go... after a month of sitting in the corner of my garage, we were ready to un-box my O mile VR6 crate motor. We all stood there in amazement as the block was so clean, I could lick it without getting herpes!
      Here is my VW Guru... aka: Alexi installing the made over exhaust manifold onto the motor!




      Well known to many of you... Jon Yang aka "I can not buy enough Corrado's" paid us a visit and volunteered to help me polish my manifold.


      Alexi putting the finishing touches on the cross member...

      Here's a blurry picture of the crazy build team... I wish I got a better shot!

      Some teaser T&A pictures of the motor almost fully assembled and wheeled inside the engine bay!





      No project can be completed without this man's stamp of approval!

      More sexy engine shots! Eat your heart out...

      Don't worry folks... this is only the beginning! I'm planning to keep it naturally aspirated for 6-12 months as my wife's is getting ready to go on maternity leave. Once it's over and she goes back to work... game on!
      Here's a hint... Kinetic Motorsports!

      Depends where you can get one. We managed to source out a crate motor from a dealership in the United States. It ended up costing me approximately $1950 in total. It even included new spark plugs! LOL
      During the initial build, I had taken apart the old long block and was prepared to spend about $1800-2500 to rebuild it and bore it out to a 2.9L. Just as I was about to send the head out to get decked and rebuilt, we found this motor.
      I also scored two brand new 24V VR6 motors if anyone is interested. I'll let one of them go for $2450 USD + shipping if required. I was thinking of keeping one of them and make a dorky looking center piece display or a coffee table for my home.

      1900 hrs: It's been a long day as I spent the morning driving around to return some tools. I accidently bought a set of SAE flare kit which god would have stuck me with lightening if I tried using it on a European car. LOL
      After getting back home around lunchtime, we split off into two teams. Alexi spent the afternoon making new hard brake lines; flaring them all. Once done, he and Bryce moved onto preparing the engine bay to for the final installation of the motor. Here's some photos to showcase some of the workmanship.




      While they were doing this, I spent the afternoon building my new makeshift/state of the art paint booth. It's a beauty and I thijnk all shops will be doing this soon! (BTW, I paint for cheap and sexual favors).

      Here's a picture of a finished brake calipers.

      After a few hours, we moved to putting together my new engine mount kit from Black Forest Industries! Killer kit if you ask me!


      Even though I was super busy and working like a unionized city worker, I was still able to clean the motor and the engine bay one last time! These pictures are for Rondal. That guy has the dirtiest engine bay ever! I swear his VR-T motor has already caught herpes! Eat your heart out biatch!


      After a quick detail, we began the long awaited process of bolting in my new motor. I betcha this car is thanking me for the new driveline!



      Half way done...



      Here is the final shot with the motor in place. I nearly crapped myself as I thought this day would ever come.




      For some strange reason... something seems missing. We were really puzzled. Can you help us out?

      not to knock any of your amazing work but why didnt you opt for an updated crack pipe in place of the plastic oem unit while you had the motor out?
      awesome work man. super clean.
