I like where this is going
here is my 87 gti. my last build thread i was so indecisive of what i wanted to do so here is the straight up plan.
16v 5 speed running megasquirt as the ecu.
gloss black body with widebody and full shave
motor bay is shaved and painted green with black assets
black interior with mk3 seats
corvette saw blades
quad round light set up
and a whole lotta other stuff i will mention later
BUT LETS GET TO THE PICS
well this week im going to get my car back to my shop and let kameron (big brother) finish his motor bay.
im gonna paint the 16v and tranny and other misc motor parts and then stuff that bit*h back in it.
then itll go back to his shop again so i can finish my widebody and the rest of the body work.
my goal for the end of may will be to get the motor and tranny in and the rear of the car to be done.
well if someone wants to donate the money for better coils be my guest. lol
im a 19 year old college student. money is tight. thank god i dont have to pay anyone to do any of my work on my car. i worked autobody for quite sometime and know alot about motors and such.
ill buy better coils if i have the fiances at the time it comes to buy them. right now i have syncro suspension so its a dam monster truck.

im only at about 4k right now and its hard enought. im just thankfull that i have a bad ass shop at my house.
also id like to thank all my friends for the supplies and help.
thank you kameron for the motor and help and thank you esmir for the help with the motor bay.
there is gonna be quite a few others who are gonna help once it gets to the stage that they specialize in.
mega squirt is gonna be difficult since im not that good at wiring.
Tell you what fly over here and do some body work for me and I'll get you a set of B&G rs2's
well im getting a trailer tonight or tomorrow and the paint for the motor and tranny. should have that done by mid next week. i need to get a gasket kit though so it might be a week before the motor goes in.
I'm not his real brother. People just consider us brothers
welp i decided to rip into my wiring harness tonight. got rid of probably a 100 wires that arnt going to get used. im about to buy a painless wiring kit and eliminate all this nonsense.
how is it that mega squirt can run a whole motor off of 12 wires? why didnt vw do that in the beginning.
well hopefully my megasquirt kit and harness come in this week so i can get a intake manifold and start the dam beast
