      Oh that's beauty.
      When my brakes break, I want to go this route! It's almost too bad I got my car with brand new OEM brakes a year ago, which work alright for now, as long as I don't ask too much of them

      Keep an eye out for those calipers (or at least the carriers). 16v sciroccos aren't the easiest things to come by.

      FWIW, stock pads/rotors (maybe just pads?) were clearanced pretty recently, so you don't need to feel too bad

      Yeah those MKII Scirocco carriers are they key. You can use MKIII Jetta/Golf calipers IIRC.

      I'm party to a similar upgrade that is about to get started. We got the donor car today.

      Looking forward to seeing the latest updates - really good thread to date.

      Great job on this.

      A few questions because I didn't totally understand everything you did:

      1. How did you get the gauges to work? Did you leave that section of the Fox harness? In reality ours is a race car only the Fuel and Tach work on it anyway.

      2. Did you finish up using 2 fuse boxes or did you merge into one, and if so which one and how? How did you handle the ignition circuit.

      3. What motor mounts did you use, and did you happen to take a measurement of how much beyond where it should be the intake ended up?

      Thank you!

      TTT on this need an answer to previous questions

      Regarding the oil filter flange, we have the ones we pulled off the fox motors, those should work right?. We will run the original fox engine mount brackets.

      No, the ABA uses the newer bolt pattern for the oil filter flange. You'll need to use the AEB flange (first gen longitudinal 1.8t).
