      i didnt read the whole story you are having with the alarm and what not but.. you could try what we do when we install the VR into the mk2s and bypass the alarm with the jumper Fuse

      love the color, i wanted the fahrenheit gti but i got the fahrenheit gli instead.

      the first thing i thought of when i was the color was the gti. this thread makes me miss my mk3 though

      What are the ET's?

      I'm in the same boat (if it's the same), where my 16x9 all around Schmidts poke like that up front.
      Aside from swapping out to mk2 control arms, axles and such, I don't know how one would achieve tuck with such low ET's on wide wheels.
      Mine are ET 15 all around.

      ^exactly my problem.

      you will be golden with ET 25 up front.

      Look forward to this beast put together.

      What tails are going to be on this thing?

      cool, not sure if you'd like em, but my thoughts with how radical the color is and the awesome motor to boot, maybe try some hella half red/half clear?
      only reason is bc the smoked lights look nice but overdone and not anything else to match the flow.
      either way, guaranteed to be stunning.

      edit: nvm, saw the pic a page back and they look awesome w the black emblem & text top

      only finished reading the first page but nice job dude. that orange is hot, makes me want to get a jetta in that. Prob should start the golf first. But on the manifold wouldn't that sharp 90degree corner cause some kind of turbulence in the manifold or dosnt it matter with forced induction? and u might wanna try a smaller tungsten welding up that aluminum. Amazing so far ill be back to finish this thread after dinner.
