      you might have alot of fun pulling a drivetrain out of a 924 or a 944 and throwing it in a scirocco. theyre front engine, rear transmission, so instead of swapping just the drivetrain, swap the whole rear end, and use a more powerful engine.

      Not a bad idea but I will already be pushing the limits of the syncro system with the engine.

      Thanks! Just finished up banging on some metal tonight and wanted to share more progress since last time.

      I finished up the other side of upper and lower control arms the other week. So nice to have the majority of this step out of the way!








      After that I racked it up and strapped down the audi TT tunnel.



      Then proceeded to trim a lot of material from it and also slowly trim back the car so it would fit to my liking. The complete TT tunnel is actually almost the same length but it's not exactly the right fit for the ends so those were binned and I'll be finishing them off with sheet stock. The shifter fits like a treat and is a bit further back than stock and also taller so it will be nice to having not to reach too far to shift.






      And the results after pushing, pulling and banging on the metal tonight.

      Thanks for the kind words everyone. Much appreciated. Here are two "detail" pics from tonight to keep the thread going. They are from my cell phone since I forgot the real camera again.





      Real updates coming after this weekend.

      Last week was successful in finishing up the tunnel. The HVAC box still fits with a little bit of clearance so the only thing to modify will be the center console!



      And one from the inside




      Then onto the fuel system. I decided to retain the stock tank position and modify as necessary to fit the prop, exhaust and rear end. I want to mention and stress that I drained the tank then washed it out with water before modification. Gas is flammable and the last thing that should happen is the tank explode or have a fire while modifying it, so do at your own risk if you go this route Enough of that, here are lots of pics to tell the story.



      trap/transfer with bung.











      little of this



      fit into that











      basic NPT fittings with push lock fuel hose




      After it was assembled it was leak tested with water and it held for hours just fine. I fogged the inside of the tank to keep rust at bay and primed it up until it's time for exterior coating selection. Can't beat a good fitting tank. Sure it lost some capacity but otherwise this would be wasted space if I went for a fuel cell in the back. I like the OEM-ness of it and how it turned out. Extra trips to the gas station is OK because I can pick up some $1 arnold palmers





      thanks for looking

      This gave me a good laugh!

      Yesterday was fairly successful on getting the fuel system up to snuff. Since the rear suspension is now taking up a lot of space, the filler neck had to change its routing so with a few stainless bits, it was fitted up tight and away from the wheel. Now finds it's routing through the body which will get attention here in a bit. The only thing I need is a new filler neck end, where the gas cap screws on. It's the standard two tab mk1 style. If you have one please let me know. Mine was too rusty to weld on.















      Need to fit in the vent tube and the check valve back in somewhere but have some trick ideas for that.
      Thanks again for checking in!
