      Just like a lot of other people here I started one project then a better car came along.
      So now the project car is the parts car and a new build begins.
      Here is what it came with:

      Rallye front rad support
      Audi door handles
      full cabby kit
      rear smoked ecodes
      roof wing
      fuel cell (on the fence with this)
      battery box cut out in rear (stash box)
      rear disk conv.
      full dynamted intieror
      head gasket
      arp head studs
      short runner intake
      oem SEAT intake manifold
      serpintine belt conversion
      It also came with extra parts to turbo, I’m keeping the log mani but the turbo and wastegate are FS.

      Doner car will be giving up the Garret T3/T4 .57 trim turbo, Tial 38mm wastegate and MS along with other misc parts to make the car whole again.
      Day one pic beside the old project.

      Looking good Ken. Keep up the progress. You upped the ante by a lot with this one. Its gonna be a beast.

      I love the color btw.

      The body is clean but the paint has seen better days. Looks great at 20ft bit it's got a lot of chips and scratches. But that something g to worry about after she is running.

      He has a set of coils on the other shell that will make their way over eventually.

      Weitec coils are on the gray car and will be coming off before it gets too cold out along with the Rado brake setup. I'm looking to make it a fun car so I'm thinking somewhere around 225-250hp but that can change. I have to double check but I think I have MS1 V3, that I bought like 2 years ago for the gray car. I still have to pull the head and inspect everything. The injector holes weren't covered so who knows what's in there. I'll be replacing the belts and gaskets while everything is apart.
      Tranny is stock with diesel 5th and it will do for now since I have a spare already.

      Can I see pics of the Rallye front end please? Want to do that to the white rabbit.

      Started laying out the MS wiring last night which was a lot easier this time. Still trying to figure out what to do with the coil pack. I'm thinking about putting it in the same location as the stock one. I can probably make a new block off plate with mounting tabs for the coil.

      Here is a quick update on the build.
      I’m working on a new distributer block off plate so that I can mount my coil on. The bolts on the coil sit right over the current plate. Initially I was thinking of just welding tabs on it but it’s easier to just make a new one.
      I made a cardboard template and was able to test fit it.
