      Ok so, first of all I would like to say that, this is not gonna be easy for me, due to my work schedule,
      This thread is about the old R32t from eip, I got this few months ago with a really bad misfire, found 0 comp in cyl 1 and stip the motor apart,

      I plan to sell the car few times, but no ones really have the money. So I decide to keep itonly has 3205 miles when motor was removed, [IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]

      Ps, please dont expect this is gonna be a fast rebuilt thread since I do not have a ga&rge and I do this by myself, in my spare time, only drove once and I fall in love with, anyway a few pics of the current state of parts and car,
      Any help, comment or sugestion is really apreciated, and if u pkan to insult, and tell me how bad eip threat u, I let u know is not my business, this is my personal car. And im not responsable for what that company did before.
      301 712 2450 that is my number if u think u have something to help me feel free to txt me[IMG][/IMG]

      Awesome bring it back to life. Should go through the parts and try in figure out what actual things were done to it as well. Was always curious back when Rich built it what he actually did cause his story changed a few times on me lol. Injectors pistons etc etc

      Would be very cool to see this back on the road. Would be great to see the same kind of HP numbers out of it also

      Idk, I'm not a huge fan of stickers, but it's almost a nostalgia thing with this car to me. I think that's why I don't mind them on this car.

      I wouldn't be surprised if that car was worth more with those stickers, than without. It is a piece of R32 history, for whatever that's worth.

      What are the build plans for the car?

      If it is going to still be a monster turbo, leave the stickers and wheels to continue as 'the eip car'.

      If you are pulling the turbo out and going back to NA - pull the stickers off and get rid of the steam rollers.

      Either way, at this point in the build, throw out those stock cams and upgrade!

      pistons are done, try to see if you can find someone that weld that piece that broke off the block back in and machine it to what it was.

      what standalone ?

      1200 will be a bargain once you see how much a good tuner will hit you for a stand alone tune.
