      So how does that tool install them?

      there is an insert piece that has a point on the tip, you slide that in and it hits the valve down past the keepers and when it springs back the keepers catch.



      Our VW springs are too heavy to do by hand, but same way.

      that looks nifty, you may have to let me borrow it to tear down our damaged head.

      I forgot to throw in that it was a kiddy pool full for JB weld.

      Yeah it took me maybe thirty min to get the head down to the scrap aluminum. pulling off the valve stem seals was the most time consuming.


      To day I found out why my Pass. wheel was 1inch farther toward the rear of the car, the "finger" on the back side of the control arm was bent... so ordering new ones. Cause they will be all clean I will weld some gussets on them for strength. Probobly overkill but it will be fun!

      UPDATE!

      First off head over to the Fabrication Forum for some cool stuff. Here is a teaser!
      (BTW Google images changed their layout and I am having trouble getting bigger photos out of them! )


      Wiring:

      I am starting to clean things up, here is my system for grounds in the engine bay.






      I will be using the same system for Switched power in the engine bay and under the dash.

      Heat:

      This is a heat blanket from under a Ford truck's bed. The Exhaust runs close to the bottom of the bed so when trailer companies install a gooseneck hitch they remove these to put the hardware on. My local trailer shop gave me several. They happen to be sticky on the back side still!







      Exhaust:

      Started working on the Mid-dump, however I ran out of cut-off wheels :/ Please excuse the mess it always gets crazy midproject



      Oil:

      I think I found an okay place for my oil cooler, I am still on the fence about "flow" I out the inlet on top so the pump is not having to push through the cooler. I dunno if it really matters at all!



      This will allow me to run my yellow inner lights and leave cooling room.

      More coming during/after christmas!

      I got it locally from "Husky Auto Electric" They mainly have truck and 18wheeler stuff, but some groovy stuff.

      This is a 8 way distribution thingy, they get it from some supplier with a minimum order of $1500, so when i saw one on the shelf and wanted two more I put it on their list. It took two months to get it ordered :/ I don't remember internet searches being successful, I hope you find something.

      I think $33 with tax. Kinda pricy in my book, but they will pay for them selves with ease of wiring in new systems!

      BTW I love your build!

      Lets see updates! I have started on wiring, but I will post photos of the before, progress and after when I am finished.

      New stuff! My turbo “blanket” came in to day, I will have to modify it to fit my internal wastegate, but it would work nicely.


      DSCF2828 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr

      I swapped the cams out of my dailydriver GTI and dropped them into the Scirocco, I think they are Autotech 272/something's

      Stock cam:

      DSCF2815 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr

      Autotech?

      DSCF2816 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr

      I got all of my scilicon connectors in so I mocked up the intercooler piping.


      DSCF2817 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr

      Here is a shot from the front. I think a few “speed holes” in the front bumper will help with airflow.


      DSCF2821 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr


      DSCF2827 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr

      I also did some sanding/minor polish on the valvecover.


      DSCF2830 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr


      that is it for now! Happy new years!

      some small updates.

      Got some lights fitted, here is the walk through i used Here.

      DSCF2847 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr


      DSCF2850 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr

      Intercooler piping fabbed up.

      I am thinking Painting it Matte Black to match the manifold. Let me know what you think.


      DSCF2851 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr


      DSCF2852 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr


      here is another question, should i used this "Turbo Intercooler" pipe in this location? or should I make it just normal like the others?


      DSCF2853 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr


      Let me know what you guys think

      Cheers,

      Seat came! it is SUPER light.


      DSCF2873 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr


      DSCF2872 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr

      pardon the mess. I have been using it as my computer chair for a few days now, very comfy.

      DSCF2875 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr


      Exhaust wrap came. This is 1" X 50ft, I was able to wrap 3 of my 4 runners with it. So I ordered up more of it :/ Its amazing how much you use.


      DSCF2874 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr


      I Ordered a Peloquin LSD from www.thescirocco.com, awesome prices and amazing resource for Questions. I will order from him again.

      20ft of 1.74" .095 DOM tubing on its way for the roll cage. It will give me enough for the main hoop and the major lengths, for the 4 point. If I am feeling up for it I will add a Halo bar and make it a 6 point.

      Eibach springs are on their way with the correct Lb's I think I did 450lb front 600lb rear and I will be installing a small front sway bar. I will have to look at them when they get here.


      untill next time.

      Started bending the roll cage on Sat.

      I got this hint from Pirate4X4.com they build amazing cages for offroad use over there.

      Measure the inside of the car, then mark it on a big flat area.

      DSCF2903 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr

      Start bending by using the markings as a template, DONT forget to account for the bending of the tubing.


      DSCF2904 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr


      DSCF2905 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr

      putting the final bend in.

      DSCF2907 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr

      I also installed the Neuspeed short shift kit I found in the junkyard. Now it is for a MK2 so the OEM sifter arms do not work, however if you cut and shorten the " push forward" arm... like so.


      DSCF2900 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr

      it works awesomely. I say it removed about 3/4 of an inch out of my shift knob travel. We will see how I like it when I start driving it.


      DSCF2896 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr


      DSCF2899 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr

      You can also see the notch I had to cut in my weighted shift rod so that it would pivot.

      Until next time! Hopefully LSD will be here this week and my springs too!

      Yeah, just like Euclid did.

      beautiful work
      just a thought have you considered using a mk2 or passat 16v manifold to shorten and reroute the ic piping????
      Its hard to make a comeback if you've never left

      if the throttle was on the other side I would have to run 4 90deg bends to get things around the alternator and timing belt. Not to mention the electric Passat throttle body does not clear the "fin" with the timing mark on the valve cover. I was playing with making a SRI, maybe with a 16v bottom and a AWP manifold.

      Thanks for the input

      That will not be an issue. He'll be available when ever you get the diff.

      Good evening.

      This afternoon I made the seat bracket for the Kirky seat and test fit the roll bar.

      Test fitting helmet clearance. I think I will bump the roll bar forward about two inches.

      Unboxed the springs today, for the fronts.


      DSCF2930 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr


      DSCF2931 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr

      Then I cut some speed holes in my front bumper, giving me about +32 free horsepower! Naw they are for the intercooler behind it.


      DSCF2932 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr

      I also painted the car bottom from the front seat mounts to the rear.


      DSCF2933 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr


      DSCF2936 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr

      Here is the only before shot I could find. This is from when I replaced the spare tire well.

      I also got my cage plates welded in, I managed NOT to burn the whole place down which is a good thing. The paint will be ground off when the cage gets welded in.

      Well Updates. Here is what I have been doing over the weeks.

      My LSD came!


      DSCF2988 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr

      Bolts & Bearings included.

      DSCF2989 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr

      I have been POR-15'ing everything I can reach!

      Engine bay: Before


      DSCF2991 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr

      Engine bay: After


      DSCF2992 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr


      DSCF2990 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr

      While painting I found that the raintray above my fuse panel was rusted pretty bad!


      DSCF2998 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr

      so I wire wheeled it down, and hit it with two coats of POR-15.


      DSCF2999 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr

      Then hit it with two layers of Fiberglass. I wanted something that would not seep water, I also shaped it to funnel into the drain hole in the bottom left. (I will have to drill it out when it drys ^.^)


      DSCF3001 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr


      Just a photo showing how i shaped my Cage to body mounts. These are for the rear arches.


      DSCF3003 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr


      Here is the cage. This was the final Mock up before welding.


      DSCF3002 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr

      It is now welded in. I could not get any photos cause it got dark out while I was welding, but I will grab some more in the upcoming days.

      The local guy putting my LSD in, Rod, just called me and told me that it was ready for pick up so I will go and grab it from him tomorrow morning.

      As for now I smell like burning paint and welding. So a shower for me!

      Cheers all!

      Very nice to see the progress.

      Picked up the tranny today!


      IMG_4114 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr


      IMG_4115 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr

      First thing I did.


      DSCF3007 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr

      so I could paint it gloss black! I feel kinda bad cause Rod put so much work into cleaning it!


      DSCF3008 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr

      Masked off the "Tool Tray" and painted it to match the bay.


      DSCF3010 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr

      Picked this up today for an amazing price from a friend.

      Its amazing the difference from my Fujifilm. My Fujifilm is 12.8 Mp and the Cannon is only 8Mp but the clarity (Both on auto mode cause I don't know how to use it yet ^.^) when zoomed in at full size is shockingly clearer on the Cannon...as it would be


      DSCF3004 by Brycejoseph, on Flickr


      and some more cage shots. Not amazing welding, but good penetration and coverage.

      OK, it is your transmission to do as you want, I have seen one painted tranny, ut don't remember how it looked in the car. I'll save my opinion after I see it installed.
