Watching this one
Wiring I really can't help with since I used the whole MKIV harness. It was all plug and start after that. For me that was the easiest way, but I had the whole donor car. Sounds like that engine is going to put down some really good power .

I haven't really had the time in the past week or so to get anything done to the mk2 because of work and school. But was able to spend some time on it today with Bryan (Bonestockmk1). I figured out a while ago that my SPA bottom mount manifold wasn't gonna work with this swap because of the mk2 rear mount in the way so I bought a log style mani from someone on here. I was finally able to mount that up today. as well as get the trans off and the motor on the stand.
Got to start on stripping down the motor.
Unfortunatly when I took of the valve cover we found out that my cam and one of the lifters were just completely done
I know its been a while since ive last updated this thread, in reality, its been a while since ive touched the MK2. Unfortunatly I have been swamped with school work, but the semester ends soon so I will have a few weeks of constant work time.
Today Bryan and Stefan (the guy who will eventually be painting this) came over and got some bay and interior work done.
Dry Ice helped get all of the sound deadening out.
and a little work on the bay.
