      i figured i would finish up my build here in this thread. Most of the guys who have been around for a while know what i have been building. this build has been going on for a while now, and is just about finished up.
      i started out like 99% of you guys. did some basic mods to the oem turbo, and upgraded the k03 to a 50trim t3/t4. went through the headaches of having a custom tune, and enjoyed the car as much as possible for the season. i had built a completely custom system. unfotunately, i was naive then, and had the wrong people involved in helping me make the most of my car. i started talking with other companies, and got my wheels spinning. i decided, i wanted power. but more importantly, i wanted a number. a single digit number. there were alot of things i wanted in this build which haven't been done before. when i say alot, i mean ALOT. i didn't want a cookie cutter set-up. i wanted simplicity, ease of working on, and something that would make people lean forward at.
      there are alot of small details i've done to help with simplicity, or increase functionality, that i'm sure i'm missing. this build has been a blast. most of all, this car was built to still be driven on the street and be a sleeper. when i say sleeper, i mean SLEEPER. there has been around 450lbs removed from the car, yet it still looks like a street car inside. there are so many custom parts in this build it makes my head hurt. i have engineered, helped engineer so many parts...ugh. but the end result is exactly as i pictured. vision to reality. all of this takes time. there have been many of changes to the car. we may have engineered a part, and made multiple changes to it before i was satisfied. well, the time has come that i think i'm satisfied. haha.
      before i get on with the pictures, and build details, i need to thank the people who have helped me, and have been tortured through out the years of this build. if you want a powerful, reliable, fast car...these are the people to get up with. the companies listed below are the same names you see on alot of builds. there is a reason. they listen, and help you achieve. i cannot thank these guys enough. i will be putting together a race schedule with the companies below, look for that soon.

      vwsport. been posting about this build for 2 years? lol.
      cincy, it's tucked up a bit more now. i think maybe next year i'll pull the cell and shoot it in black, and do black fittings/lines to the pumps. hide them a bit.

      so you are running solid cams.... what shims? and who set it up?
      and why OS exhaust and not OS intakes? when i set mine up, Bob told me OS ex would not net me anything gain-wise, and to just stick with OS intakes only.... i realize you changed the ex valves cuz they suck, just wondering why not stock size is all.
      and you arent worried about the stock intake valves not keeping up with the rest of the setup (IE: triple groovers versus single groover)???

      I think the exposed fuel pumps setup might give away the sleeper look Ever think about switching to steel braided lines for the pumps? Looking good man [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      yes, solid lifter profile cams. i decided to try something different. our hydro lifters are really nice units, so i went back and forth with bob, and we both felt these cams would be ok on hydro lifters. only plan on spinning to 9500-9700. this is one of those things that we decided to try out. if it works, this will open up our selection of cams. if it doesn't....well, lol. my machine shop assembled the head, minus the cams/lifters. bob timed the cams in.
      and why OS exhaust and not OS intakes? when i set mine up, Bob told me OS ex would not net me anything gain-wise, and to just stick with OS intakes only.... i realize you changed the ex valves cuz they suck, just wondering why not stock size is all.
      i went with OS exhaust valves to try and move the exhausted air quicker than oem sized. i have a large turbo to light off, so anything to help me extend the powerband, is what we looked for. while i agree using OS intakes would prolly net more power, the cams i choose will allow for plenty of air to come into the cylinder.
      and you arent worried about the stock intake valves not keeping up with the rest of the setup (IE: triple groovers versus single groover)???
      nah, i'm confident the oem intakes will keep up. this is something else that will be swapped out after this season. the intakes don't require nearly the seat pressure the exhaust valves do, so keeping the triple grove keepers wasn't a concern. now i have seen the single grove keepers pull WAY down inside the retainers, because of the incresed seat pressure.
