      Cool project, chassis looks very good. What are you using for front uprights and what kind of suspension ratios are you using?

    3. 08-05-2011 07:47 AM #28
      I really don't know the ratio's , honestly .. As for uprights ...Where the shocks mount it is just 1/8"
      tabs.. As for the pivot point...I drilled through the frame and welded a XXheavy wall pipe in the frame wall. That wall pipe has a 9/16" hole id , and 1 1/4" od..
      So , it pivots on a 9/16, grade 8 bolt basically .


      And thanks for all the comments ..

      Aww man it's coming along sooo well!!! The donor GTI was my buddy Arli's. Was sad to see it get totaled but i'm glad to see that it's living on!!!

      ya , Arli's a cool cat .. I had to get up with him to find out what what done to it and all ... This build is taking for ever to complete .. I keep changing things that I don't like , that doesn't help getting it done.. But at least I will be happy when its done .. Thanks ..

      "art is not in the doing art is in the concept. the act of doing is craftsmanship and craftsmanship is not always doing it right the first time but doing it over as many times as it takes to get it right and not stopping until you are happy with it. or it is ruined. "
      Not sure who said that but it is on of my favorite quotes and have it posted in the top of ny toolbox at work...

      Keep up the good work its looking great....

      Just the little things and then tackle the wiring harness ...errrr
      A couple pics of the intercooler , less the piping ..I know it is in a strange place ..

      Looks like a perfect place to mount it. Easy routing for the piping and right between the passengers for optimum flow. Keep it up! I want to see this thing ripping!

      Hey , might be the wrong place to put the help wanted ad.. but..
      I am not a wiring type person ..I am struggling with the big ball of wiring I have in my building ..Can someone help me out with this? I can't swing the stand alone . I do have the whole car wiring harness , but it is not labeled . I have multiple questions..
      What is the minimum wiring I can get by with ? I was planning on making a light , fuel , etc. panel and running switches off that for certain things like that .. I do have a book on the car ..but I can't make heads or tails of it .. I also have a big pdf file on the donor car ... also . I am still confused . Any help would be greatly appreciated ..

      depending on the harness(s) that you have, i would suggest laying them out on the floor to put things in perspective...

      you are going to have 2 side to the engine harness.....these will both connect to the ECM...

      i can not tell from your photos the state of the motor...has the 2ndary air injection, and evap been removed? it appears so, if that is the case this will eliminate some of the wiring....

      it also might help after laying the harness out to start to fit things up and "plug in" as required...there will be several "essentials"...these are all on the ECM sides of the harness

      • coil packs
      • injectors
      • throttle body (unless this is an early 1.8t that is DBC)
      • n75 valve
      • 02 sensors



      then you will have the chassis harness, which is more straight forward, these are things that come out of the comfort control module and/or inside the car, or the little fuse panel that used to live on top of the battery

      • starter trigger wires
      • starter power wire
      • alternator wire
      • fan wiring (easily swtiched to be wired for "ON/OFF")



      that is a bit of a taste while i am sitting hear eating lunch....not sure where you are located, if you were local i would be thrilled to help out....

    23. 02-07-2012 03:23 PM #48
      Thanks .. I have layed it out ..I see the 2 sides that connect to the ecm ..I know that I will need most of these , if not all . the Donor was a 20th annv. 03 . The evap and secondary have been deleted before I got the car ..the plugs have been taped up ..I started working on unrapping that last night ....

      if those are gone, honestly it should be pretty straight forward....you will need pretty much all the other plugs....

      the FCM (fan control module) comes out of the body harness, so you can likely just hardwire/relay base switch the fans.....other than that is is pretty simple, just power up the ECU, and get power to the starter!
