      This is the build thread
      Check out post #187 on page 6, It shows what the insides look like.




      Manifold Looks great!

      AWD, is 3 years minimum down the road if ever, at that point I would buy a hardtop and swap it all over.

      In other news, got the garage scrubbed, tools organized, and parts stash sorted into 5 piles, gotta keep going with the organization..

      Motor should be done in 2-3 weeks...

      Did you just use a standard router bit to do the runner openings? Like the ones made to cut wood?

    8. 08-07-2012 03:31 PM #288
      Yup, Justin can give you the specifics, but it was a 3" router bit.

      Use a thick piece of alloy, for deep bellmouths.

      That is a pretty good pile of shavings.

      You mean ebay had the best bang for the buck router or bit?

      Great work.

      Looks like fun.

      Just a thought, could you also use the MK3 fill cap extension in addition to the other tube thingy.

      In other build news.....





      Old Subaru Airbag, with heavy flake test on bottom, micro flake on top, I'm going Micro, and the pics don't do it justice.

      Dash is up next, as are most of the parts pictured below...poor Dylan.


      Previous posts from my build thread on flocking and CMS..


      Big box, arrived @ CMS Motorsport Solutions in Vt.

      Big thanks to my man dylan costello, you can find him on facebook.

      https://www.facebook.com/CMSmotorsport

      He is looking to get a vw/audi customer base, he usually works on subies, evos, porsche, etc.

      Price for a dash flocked, upper only is very reasonable roughly 120.00.

      Hit him up for any of your needs, we may not flock everything pictured, but the majority of it will be done.

      We are gonna experiment adding a little bit of gold flake to the flock, to match the wheels, and the engine which will soon be receiving a fresh coat of gold paint, once reassembled.

      Little side project, one down one to go, should shed some bright clean light on the Intermanicooler at night.



      Installed on of two Audi R8 engine bay lights, had to slowly "graft" these in. Will be wired to a hidden bay mounted switch so I can light up my bay at night, these are found stock on Audis $100k plus R8 Supercar.


      R8 engine bay lights from OEMplus.com. I love stealing from the VAG parts bin.

      ummmm....in a mk1 the TB is higher and hits the hood. i know you made a differnt manifold and the VC is cut up. but with the throttle cable on top...you MAY have an issue with hood clearnance no?
      if you do, we have the drop plate for the TB you can use and have the throttle on the side still...no hood issuses

      Yep, I was thinking of that, Or I could just get a USRT water meth tapped TB Spacer, and then the Tb could be turned with the cable on the side, right now it hits vc....
