      Thanks man, I just saw your dad in the bug earlier. For now I have most the stuff handled, I may try and put a g-grind cam in the 1.7 for fun. There isn't too much I can to to the stock motor really.

      Update finally!!

      Got armor door plates to cover the small rust spots


      And tried to wash it the other day, I don't think it did much good. Managed to scrub some of the green gunk off.


      And put all the plastic bits back on after a bit of cleaning.

      No turbos in the plans right now. Its on a tight budget right now, and the stock motor is fine as is right now.

      Well I guess ill update.

      Not a lot has happened, as far as mods. It melted in July. I fixed it, it broke. I tried to fix it again. Failed....

      And now it runs again. Needed a new WUR and I broke a wire replacing the fuse box that made it not run after that. Saving up for suspension now.

      I also scored some 15x7 enkei 92 I am going to refinish, and a set of Recaro trophys for $150 from a garage sale in awesome condition.

      I can barely afford to keep the coupe running, bills and food are expensive.

      Good things will be on their way. Coilovers, Centra wheels and some new suspension bits will be ordered soon! Christmas bonuses are awesome.

      Guess I haven't updated this in a while.

      Here are some pictures.

      Scored these at a garage sale for $150, super clean


      Out with the old,in with the new.


      Test fit of some new shoes. They are going to be a tight fit with the offset.


      Got it a bit lower for now.


      Had a little issue... stupid helper springs and poor alignment.


      Finally got a day of sun here in WA for a quick wash.

      Picked this up over the weekend. GTI 1.8 8v supposedly with a g-grind cam in it and an external oil cooler and transmission for $150!

      I plan on doing a slight build with it. So far it will be getting a port and polish with some better valve springs and maybe a bigger cam.

      Thanks! I noticed when it started smelling a bit funny, still rolling on that tire it hasn't given out yet.

      Now I just need a place I can work on my motor, apartment living sucks.

      I would rather boost something a bit bigger. But I may be getting a G60 cam and valves on a trade. :p

      If I could do a turbo on the mega cheap I would.
