i've been rocking an alh swapped mk1 for a while (and a lot more time building it) but got tired of the intricacies of having a motor in a mk1 that was never designed or destined to be there and getting the heat/ac/etc working.
So i've resolved to taking my motor, tossing a bigger turbo and fueling on it and stuffing it into a mk2. Much more of a drive it then a show it off kind of car
what the rabbit looked like and all of it's one off parts
the two cars in the garage ready for the first swap weekend
what the mk2 looked like (anybody want a 16v?
the alh sitting in the mk2 bay, still needing all the details around the motor handled (mk2s take motors SO MUCH EASIER then rabbits, holy damn, took longer to get the motor out of the rabbit then to it into the mk2 by a good 3 times!)
gt2256 turbo with a 4-1 manifold off the back side, stepping the piping up to 2.5" for the intercooler piping, bigger injectors, the works.
the biggest part of the project has been to keep to mostly stock parts - where available i'd rather pay for a brand new factory part or source a used one instead of doing what I did with the rabbit (had to really) of creating so many unique parts that are impossible to maintain or replace without a lot of heartache.
more to follow, just haven't taken the pics off the camera - if I get down to it I MIGHT be able to take it on a spin for the leavenworth drive
