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!
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
