      11-24-2008 08:44 PM #1
      heres my projet ..i bought a 97 VR6 GTi with no engine . at first i wanted to do a 400hp+ 8V but instead i've opted for a 07 2.5L 5cylinder 20V that i will turbocharge

      the car is gonna get a complete new paint job (Black Magic from 20th GTI)

      KW variant 1 coilover

      and 17" BBS RX

      pretty much every thing on the body will stay in stock form

      now the motor

      its an 07 2.5 5 cylinder from a Rabbit with 1800miles on it .



      the GT3582R ball bearing

      and now my tranny setup .

      02M 6speed Quattro from an Audi TT

      will update as the project evolves

      Very Cool

      Can I ask why the 2.5 and not just turbo the VR6?

      As a 2.5 owner Im stoked to sew how you make out.

      i bought the car with no engine in it ...the car was originally bought by a friend of mine for the engine only as the car rolled over and the top was totalled .. but the car ended up being not so bad and almost rust free so we changed the top but i had no engine ..so i went with a 2.5

      Hello, looks like a nice project.

      Could you post some detail pictures of the intake and exhaust manifiollds?
      I didn't know those were EFI, and could have used this intake manifold for a mock up a few months ago!

      Hello,

      While the intake manifold is off, could you please take some pictures of it's flange and the runner/ports?
      Also maybe a good shot of the injector angle and placement.

      Thank you.

      it only has 1800miles on it .. you should have seen the oil in the oil pan light brown .. it was probably the same oil the motor was sold with ..original oil ..
