      -Thoroughly meditated and practiced
      -Stealthily efficient

      That's what we go by.

      what rivets? the ring gear comes stock with bolts? i saw no other rivets in the gearbox that i remember. that is the Wavetrac front diff with the OEM ring gear on it already.

      it came with two billet shift forks and i plan on putting another roll pin inside the original one for added shear strength.

      i hope the times drop quick now....

      So i finally collected the parts i am going to upgrade for this years race season.
      I snatched up John Betz Roll cage from his red corrado.
      I got the hook up from my good friend Aaron on a set of 1000cc Injectors.
      Just got a new 044 pump for the new 034efi Surge tank and i got a new clutch pac
      for this year. 2600lbs PP 6 puc disc 9.5lbs Flywheel.
      and last but not least My main man Jerry Rynolds AKA White Beard is machining me a fully ported and polished 16v head.
      Going to the Dyno and retune for c16 so i can turn the boost all the way up on the GT3076
      looking to make 550+whp and finally run a low 11 second 1/4 mile this year. i currently run 12.30 @ 117mph on pump gas 92 octane at 24psi boost. So hopefully 150whp more will get me 1.0 second faster in the 1/4 mile.

      ahh, sorry to hear that man... Took a long break from my car as well. Fortunately once you make some progress its easy to get passionate about it again.
      Mine will soon be running after sitting for 2 1/2 years.

      This year we're planning bigger and better things after a good season for us last year. Its all going on 2.slowslow's blue gti. We're doing a complete fuel upgrade to run e85 with 80# injectors, 2 044's with a surge tank, new -8 fuel rail and an Areomotive FPR. We're also upgrading to PT6766 BB turbo and full 3 inch v-band aluminum exhaust with a precision 46mm WG and new tial 50mm BOV. We're going to be running Lugtronic and putting a full 10 point cage. We also have a bunch of other little things happening to cut down weight from the cage like swapping to 4 lug and taking out the heater box and all the tar from the inside of the car. Upgraded to level 5.9 axles and have a full slicks and skinnies set up. Putting some arp hardware into the block and hope it last till we can build the motor. The trans will be stock till next season. We're hoping to have a good year after going 11.0 last year with a small t3t4 turbo on 36# injectors running pump 93 on a C2 chip. We have almost all the parts ready to in and we're just waiting on a few things that have to be done first....

      I've been doing some work on my gti but it won't be out this season and i'm in no rush. i'm having a lot more fun helping a friend out then stressing about my own car for now.
