      Yea I'm just super nervous. Youre not really suppose to weld axles anyways since theyre case hardened steel. (makes them brittle) But yea, I'll run them for a bit and check them.

      From what i can see, it doesn't look like there is a way you can slide a larger pipe over the welded area, then weld the ends. That's how many people add strength to a welded axle. Is that possible? Or would it interfere with the cv boot?

      Yea that bump is for the cv boot to slide over. I thought about reinforcing it, still might. Just need to figure something out for the boot.

      Randy, it took 2 all night garage sessions to build the Fox suspension, it's still doable for this baby

      Haha I'm not scared, suspension is the second to last thing I'm doing. We'll get it done.

      Haha didn't do a whole lot yesterday. Took the trans off to align the starter and decided to put my axles together.





      You couldn't even tell that they were custom built.

      Google didn't translate that too well.
      What he said was that he does not know English, so he's using Google translate. And then obviously he wants to put a 1.8T in his B2 Passat. Too bad I don't have a Cyrillic keypad...

      Though, I'm not sure he ever finished it.

      Weekend update.
      Motor is finally sitting in the car.









      Spent 20 hours in the garage Saturday. Still need to clean up all the mounts and build the k-frame. Got the shift linkage all squared away to. Exhaust is being done this week also.

      Hockey pucks FTW. Hahaha. I need it to be pretty solid because of the lack of clearance everywhere. It's quite a large motor to be shoved in that car... But it fit surprisingly well considering.

      I just need to hook up a few more things, then she's off to get wired...

      i love hockey pucks with a vr. its a pretty smooth reving engine, moderate vibration at idle.

      Remember all that extra space in there when the stock 1.7 was in there? That's one reason I love the longitudinals...plenty of space to work. Well, the 4-cyl longitudinals at least...

      Haven't posted in a while due to working like crazzzyyyyy. But i've made some progress.

      Got my wheels back from being polished! I think they'll look amazing.



      Got everything all ready for her to be wired up. Not something i wanted to tackle on my own so I shipped her to my buddy jesse's shop, Banchwerks in R.I. Hopefully have her back soon. Driveway looks rather empty.


      On a good note I picked up a daily driver that will most likely be smashed out on wide steelies soon

      The wheels are all 16x9.5" obviously the thickness of adapter is gonna depend on the offsets of whatever wheels your running. But these wheels will have a set of 195/40/16 tires stretched on them this week!
