      That being said, I have built the OP's car in Forza III and it is an absolute monster on acceleration. I hope you are going with some big brakes.

      I'm gonna run V6 4motion front brakes with the transfer pedal set up from the RHD MK1 Golf and the MK2 Golf 1.8 16v master cylinder and brake servo. I've got Mk4 Golf rear calipers for the back.

      Thinking about losing the servo and transfer pedal setup and going with one of these instead.

      keep it up, man. what kind of schedule are you on with this?
      I got a VW Golf Rallye back axle, took out the original differential (think you guys call it the tranny we call it Diff for short) and had a 318i E30 BMW diff (final drive ratio 4.44) put in its place. A bit like this one.



      Then i had plates made so the whole axle could be bolted straight onto the MK1 Golf chassis. Picture will follow shortly.

      All drive shafts and prop shaft have been modify to fit. Still using the 6 speed r32 gear box.

      Right now the car is in the body shop.





      Once it comes out I'll be hoping to get it running within a month as all the running gear is in place. ECU has been ordered, dash board and wiring have already been mocked up. So its just wiring, brakes, fuel lines and plumbing left. And of course all the other little niggle bits.

      Damn, when I first saw this I figured your username meant you're in Detriot. I was going to say, "Where is it? I'll be there to see it in 2 hours!"

      Glad you know what the good forum is around here

      We've been doing 12v VR6 turbo's for years. Right now i got about 5 friends building them. 24v's are new to us as they're not easy to get hold of over here.

      Question though, if this plastic inlet is so strong why do some of these guys spend thousands on those custom made kits like the one below?

      Basically you can run one of the short runners if you want to clean up your engine bay and lose power down low and gain some up top.

      Man, your advice as been priceless. Gonna strip my head and put a spacer gasket in there to lower the compression like you suggested. And take off my plastic intake to get painted up and stick it back on. Pictures will follow on Monday. Thanks again.

      How did you sort out the driveshafts? Did you use the original driveshafts that came with the synchro assembly or did you have to make custom driveshafts?

      Thanks for the message.
      The original synchro/rallye drive shaft was used on the wheel/hub side of the axle and the bmw one on the differential side. Then the two shafts were fused together then balanced to remove any risk of vibrations. The same was done on the front ones to go from the R32 gearbox to Mk1 golf hub/wheel.

      Is the bmw rear the same ratio as the haldex rear, cause i thought the haldex rear was 1:1 or some thing. also what is going to act as the center diff. Maybe im missing some thing but i dont think shes going to handle well with no center diff?
