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 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.
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.

Well tomorrow is the day I finally get that motor set in the car. Put it on the lift and set it all up today. I'll keep everyone updated.

I like the build
Thinking about a TDI swap? Review the TDI swap directory

Здравствуйте, я Английский язык не знаю, поэтому пользуюсь translate.google.ру...
У меня есть Пассат b2 coupe... Хочу поставить в него 1.8 турбо... сделайте пожалуйста более подробный фотоотчёт по замене агрегата... заранее спасибо.
Hello, I'm English I do not know why I use translate.google.ru ...
I have a Passat b2 coupe ... I want to put in his 1.8 turbo ... Please make a more detailed photo report on the replacement unit ... Thanks in advance.
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...
Check this thread out:
Though, I'm not sure he ever finished it.
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...
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
84' Quantum sedan coincidentally the same color as my coupe
