      Its about time I start up on a long-ish term build thread for my 98 Jetta GT. Plans are to have it completed by May 2012, at least the engine portion. It will need a paint job, rims, window tint, and some front end style to call it done

      Here is how she stands as it is:





      Currently stock exterior.

      Engine has 2.0 8v, OBX header, Supertech high flow valves, Intake cone, MAF deleted. LW Flywheel, Ported and decked head, 270 Cam, LW lifters, 2.25 TT SS Exhaust.

      Software is Megasquirt 3/3x running EDIS wasted spark. Plugs gapped at .054 and running e85.
      This was the first stage of the process. Installed and tuned by yours truly. Dyno'd at 133 whp with 135 wtq. Shes real fun to drive currently, but I want more!

      Megasquirted:



      And mounted in the interior:



      Under the hood it doesn't look that great currently. It will be cleaned up as time goes on.

      Plans for the build:


      2.0 ABA to 16v swap
      Rebuilt head with stock valves, stock cams (for now) Dual springs, LW lifters, adj cam gear
      T3/T4 turbo to be decided
      Tubular exhaust manifold
      2.75" Turbo back cat delete
      630cc injectors @ 4bar (may need to go bigger)
      Custom designed SRI. (Design is completed and flow simulations are being run and design refined through solid works and CUDA flow designs.)
      OBDI ABA throttle body

      Got the 16v head in. Got to remove the valves and its off to the shop!



      Then got a call from UPS saying my delivery of crank gear and pulley is going to be 2 days late due to train crash!

      Not really an ABA build. I think that 300 sounds very easy for a 16vT. There was or maybe still is a crazy fast rabbit in england that was around 400.

      Small update.

      I got the crank gear and pulley in from BBM already modified for the conversion, and the IM shaft and Oil pump with drive gear are here. Not pictured is the timing sprocket for IM shaft, already got that painted and sitting with the engine. Tomorrow if its not raining (finally I hope) it all goes on and the bottom end gets buttoned up and moved to my living room for assembly over winter in a nice warm place. Also a good conversation piece for guests

      Doubt it, unless you were at Late model throttle the other weekend. Haven't been able to get out much at meet with the other locals.

      As for updates, I broke my impact wrench so nothing done on it since.

      Cause you need an impact to work on your car...

      Only for that damn crank bolt. If you have an idea how to keep the engine from spinning while a breaker bar does the work, I'd love to hear it. Seriously, I've tried everything

      Be happy to help with that.

      No updates yet, I have been incredibly lazy this past week, and Skyrim came out. I may do some work tomorrow, well today now I guess. Gotta get everything buttoned up and inside to warm before it snows!

      Set car down and place into gear. Then you hit it with the wrench
