      Now that the holidays are over, time to start wrenching again.

      List of setbacks...
      • FL FPR is on back order. will be shipped out in 2 weeks
      • Clutch was sent back. The rivets were damaged on the PP. Im going with something different.
      • No car yet. Just when i was ready to go and get it, the snow storm hit. hopefully this weekend.
      • Not finished with stripping the Coupe. Again, the weather & me being sick was a setback


      I'm slowly putting the engine together. I have everything, just need to pick up some hardware from the dealer. (this week)

      I was trying to get my software updated but JIeff@UM is not undating C2 stuff so i'm stuck with the 09 software unless i pay $550 for a new chip (f***ck that!!)

      Adam(eurosportgti) came and got some stuff to powdercoat. Miguel (vw a1 g60t) has finished my SRI and will be shipped out this week when he gets back from vacation.

      Other then that, nothing new yet.


      Here are some pic's of a 16v SRI he's made. The boy has skill and he's getting much better. He will soon be up there with Juan & zornig.










      If anybody needs something made, hit him up. He's in Canada FTW and his turn around is pretty quick.

      Here another shot of the engine....




      and my centerless wheels


      and the centers before they left me



      Stay tuned......

      They've since made improvements to the 630/Pro-MAF software. UM has V.2 of the software. I assumed it wouldn't be a big deal to get it updated but it's no biggie. The C2 will do fine till i'm ready for stand alone.


      I almost forgot. My 82mm Wiseco & Pauter rods reached my machinist. He's still waiting on the TT oversized valves & Schrick goodies. He won't start the build till the spring which is great for me.


      I will also be looking for a project for my son. Me & the Mrs. talked about it last night and it's time for his 1st car. If you remember i bought him a 8716v GTI that the PO BS'd on the title. I ended up getting rid of it. My orig. plan was to VR it for him but that's not the case now. My secret parts connect has gotten in a 07' DSG Rabbit. He's giving me a deal i CANNOT refuse. Soon as the weather breaks, i'll be going over there and stripping it out the car & storing it till i pay it off. Finding a clean (cheap) Golf/GTI is gonna be the hard part. I'm also gonna wait till we move in the new shop before his project starts. I will take some pic's of the engine when i pick up the Jetta. I just want a reliable & safe car for him. He has to grow into the power. He's already got a swap under his belt as i had him wrenching since he was 6. Took out his 1st engine at 8 yrs old. (he'll be 17 this year)

      Jr. taking out the old G60 engine

      Ok, after a few peep's IM'ing me and a few text, it's back by popular demand.

      C&P from my build thread on EEMilitia.com...



      Back to the project....
      The updates are slim as this weather has put a halt on pretty much everything. Plans to get the Jetta home and the Coupe out the garage was put on hold. Here are the updates so far......

      First & for most. got a new tool...

      My Tig & gas Mig welders got ruined in storage (water damage) so i gotta start getting new ones and the Gasless Mig is a great start. Especially for what i need it for right now.

      The engine as it sits now.....

      The Valve cover is temp till the freshly Powdercoated one gets here.

      My wheel centers after a 2nd coat of PC'ing


      You can see my VCin the back...


      Just got the gaskets, studs & nuts in


      And here's a shot of my actual SRI before it was shipped off to me. It will be sent out to get PC the same color of my wheel centers.



      Sorry about the dead pic's above. I had to organize my P'Bucket account as i have over 1500 pic's.

      New Camera FTW...so once i get use to a real camera again, the pic's will be much better.

      Awesome build and I'm diggin' that color combo! I'm not sure if it's the lighting, but in the one picture it looks like the tensioner pulley and the valve cover are two different shades of blue?

      Barrel's & bolts will be getting the 4evercustom touch. Either polished or chrome.

      And yes, the colors are different. I wanted it to be a bit darker. It came out better then i expected. The SRI will be sent out this week to get matched. The boost tubes also. Downpipe will be sent out for chrome ceramic.

      Thanks alot guys. I gotta thank some of the fellow tex'ers for hooking me up and wanting to see it done. Not only the people but company's. Everything aside from the engine was gotten from the Tex.


      Because of me reopening my shop, the money is being spread thin. Not only this, the Audi is being a bitch. My son broke the rear hatch glass to me hitting a pothole destroying the rim & brand new axle. . Mo' Money...Mo' Money! The Audi is the only car right now so that has to get fixed.

      My goal is to at least have the engine in by mid Feb. and i'm saying this without having the car (Some ass piled a mountain of snow in front of it.) I'm gonna have everything ready for when i get the Jetta. I'll say i've gotten 70% of the parts either here or on it's way.

      I'm still in limbo on the interior. It's all blue so i'll be installing my red striped GTI dash and black carpet. I'm also looking into some racing seat. I dunno . I was planning on going full 3" exhaust but i'm gonna wait till the end of the year. I don't really want it to loud and i wanna plan a good setup before i commit.

      Any how. More to come...stay tuned.
