      This where she's gonna sit... Hood still shuts and I can still use the stock full radiator. Have to custom make my k-frame though.

      It won't be to bad building the k frame to fit, just have to make the center section a little lower. The oil pan sits level with my frame rails so I'll do something to protect her, but I'm not gonna go crazy low like I did my rado. Might just stance it so I can actually have fun with all that motor.

      And the a4 tranny fits perfectly, kinda sucks that it's a hydraulic clutch and the gear box is different. But the I'm not going to have to do custom axles so that's one less headache.

      I'm sure you'll do fine engineering the k frame. Did you use a 4 cylinder a4 tranny with an adapter, or a v6 tranny? My future plans is to change out mine for a longitudinal passat tranny. I'm glad to hear that custom axles arnt needed. Are you using the Audi ones, or the original quantum axles?

      I used a b5 a4 1.8t 5 speed. And I'm going to use my quantum axles for suspension reasons. I believe the inner joints of the axles are the same, not sure about the splines though.

      Yea I can't wait either. Ive been working 6 days a week so I haven't had much time to work on it. Not sure if it'll be ready for dustoff. Hopefully

      Damn I need access to a shop or at least a garage...might be moving in May and might have at least a single bay in a detached garage...better than nothing. I need to catch up to you.
      Blast the exhaust manifolds and paint them or get them ceramicoated...they stand out with the rust color.

      Engine looks much much nicer now.

      Yea I don't know what your deadline is but dustoff is only 60 days away. I doubt I'll be ready for dustoff.

      and yea I still have a lot on that motor I have to touch up. Just don't have the time.

      I almost bought this car last year. Pretty cool to see it's getting some much needed TLC, let alone a VR6.

      Nice work.
