good to hear that it worked out for the better
Quote, originally posted by vwjunkie42 » so as it turns out, not so bad.... the press in retaining clip that holds the 5th gear fork on, went away so 5th tried to go too. making it super hard to get between gears. so took the opportunity yanked that stumpy 16v 5th, took the 5th out of my old mk3 trany. now it shifts smooth and i have a taller 5th. all is well
cool. so the old 020 is not that bad after all as many people complain about it.
hmm, coming to this forum via the scirocco forum, what size pistons are those? is it 2.0 or bigger? also, i love the redline you've managed to come up with--how is it to drive? that is what is gravely lacking in this thread--i want to hear just what it feels like to rev this thing to 8000. and if this is a 2.0, how did you get over 200hp? is it mostly the ITB's? cams? porting? i realize it's all of the above but what is the biggest kick in the ass?
thumbs up from the 16v scirocco crowd though. i keep bitching about building an engine like this on the scirocco forum and everyone's always saying go for torque. so how do you like a high HP and medium torque engine? i love revs & i'm not trying to fault you in any way so forgive me if it sounds that way--just want to hear all the specifics of an engine like this.

Just read though your thread, mate. Very impressive.
I'm building pretty much the same thing only with a 1.8 KR and on 45 DCOE's. Nice to see some big numbers.. Gives me hope!

no updates. not much has changed. messed around with the exhaust a bit. did a tt 2 1/2 for a while and it was far to loud. am now running the tt 2 1/2 with a super sprint rear muff. i have not yet gotten larger injectors. i did have a long talk with the guys at usrt about it and they seem to think that i should be ok with the injectors that i have if i up the pressure from 3.5 to 4 bar.
i am toying with the idea of switching to some dth itb's ether the badger5's or twm's just to clean things up a bit. if i end up keeping the gsxr's i will retune for the 4 bar later this summer.
ok so i guess i do have some up dates i painted it last summer and i have pics
i did get some of these
as it sat
1st goodbye bananas
then rear seams
cleaned up rear pan
rolled the rears about an inch
fixed a few dents here and there
then drove it 60miles to my buddies barn like this
lots of sanding
plastic down masking off
back together after some color sanding and some buff
it still could use another buff. but considering this is the 2nd car i have painted, i an pleased with it
and yes adam the jenveys will be mine
so as i last posted my seats where at the upholstery shop to be redone........... a month later the guy had not even looked at them, so i went somewhere else an got a quote of $1400...... i said to myself thats my badger money F^ck that ill do that Sh!t myself........
so i busted out my $5 tag sale sewing machine and got to work and two weeks later i have this.......
but first some other new stuff
Porsche script handles
68 merc wiper arms
back to rounds
new euro plate and fluted cross hairs
the floor i did a while back
ok so now the interior
this bitch oh yeah
also i will be placing my order with bill at badger 5 on monday

more new stuff
made a sub box to match the trunk and tie in the interior fabric
i liked the smoked look of the fluted cross hairs but the light output from them sucks, so i wanted to go back to the westy plus i love the westy front so
stock westy light
bake at 300º for 20 min and after careful prying and such
a bit of paint
i also went with the chrome stripe bumpers
and parts for the next madness have started to arrive
Well they arrived this morning. Much to do now. I started fabricating brackets for the fuel rail. I have to drill and tap them for vacuume ports. I have to cut the filter base plate.... And some other things
In my quest to save money on shipping I bought the wrong filter plate and it won't clear the rail so I have to spend 40$ each for vstack extenders. But on a good note I got the 90mm stacks instead of the 120mm that badger5 recommends, as to fit in the filter. But with the spacers the overall stack length will be 130mm.
In other news I took best mk2 at volksmeet in ct this weekend.
looks sooooo good!
