Well the build starts tonight.Garage space aquired and moving the car there this evening after work My truck needed both Manifolds replaced along with both front Calipers and the trans flushed. Thats going to be a hefty bill, but life goes on.
I mocked up the Charger on the mounting bracket. VF didnt include the idler pulley for the S/C bracket so im on a hunt to find one me self. This may bring up some good opurtunities to mod the bracket to accept a alrger pulley.

Those damn Ford V8/V10 manifolds are trash. Pretty much all of them need to be replaced. Had a 2001 F250SD V10 with 40K miles on it that needed them done!
JEMM Auto Detailing: Cars, Trucks, Motorcycles, Planes, RVs, Bathtubs, if you pay me I will buff it
Also, i need a good Tourque wrench as i dont have one. I have been looking on the Snap On crafftsman and MAC tools site but undecided which i wanna go with. nothing in the motor seems to be more than 100 NM, so i think tht could be a good range
CSpense, i take it you are purchaing the V9?

i have no idea what it dynos at, cant be close to josh as i dont have the headers isntalled yet.
Ill say 240-250. My goal is 450 WHP with the E85 on the blower. Im in a heated debate weather or not to switch my Camshaft selection.
I have the ability to switch from the 272/272 w/ 11mm lift (stock) to a set of Stepped Cams
- left intake: 234ฐ/12.0mm (lift)
- left exhaust: 222ฐ/11.5mm (lift)
- right intake: 230ฐ/12.0mm
- right exhaust: 226ฐ/11.5mm
- intake: 1.8mm extra opening at TDC
- exhaust: 1.2mm extra opening at TDC

YOOO BOUDAH!!!!! I was lookin through some of my older post and you said something about a MECHANICSBURG meet.. Where the hell have i been?!? Does that still go down?
Oh and get that Mofo charged up already!!!
-WAS I TALKING TO YOU?...WE KNOW JOEY... U DRIVE AN R32
DAY 1. I had to move all my Army **** from the storage unit i had while overseas to my apartment and then all the car **** to the garage where I'm building the R.
Here is the progress thus far, Will be slow but steady as i am using a few guides, a Bentley, Vortex and a few DIYs i dug up for better pictures. Because I bought a truck, that took 13000 out of this build money so I'm TIGHT on spending .
Do work son...
Jay, Fredeick to answer your question.
The plan for tonight is the following
-Flush washer fluid
-Flush power Steering fluid
- Remove intake manifold
-remove subframe and power steering rack/ control arms
-remove front Brake/ knuckle/ spindle assembly
remove battery/ batter box
- dont forget to labeleverything i unplug/ remove haha
providing this can get done, i will go ahead and start removing the washer resivour, coolant overflow and maybe the exhaust manifolds.
I have a new found respect for Mechanics and enthusiasts I could really go for a beer right now.
Alright, Update. Either my Bentley CD took a Dump, or my Laptop decided to stop working. Either way i didn't wanna waste time so i continued the tear down. Spent about 6 hours on the car tonight and it was slow since i had to "figure out" how it all came apart, etc.
SO since i like pictures just as much as the next guy, here ya go.
Started by removing the rad support
Then i removed the Battery and base
So, i tried to unplug the sensors and instead i pulled out this entire thing. When you do that....
Since i already spilled G12 and power steering fluid, i took a Trip to Wegmans to pickup some Kitty Litter and towels.
Removed the EXH mani heat shield and the belt tensioner, AUX Radiator, Hoses and stuff.
Then i removed a few more hoses/brackets, started removing the AC Condensor bits as well. ( deleting AC, Washer fluid.
Ill tear into the head on Monday. I have Drill this weekend and will be in CT Tomorrow.
ain't gonna lie, wish I was there to help.
Best I can do is send a friend or two over there if you need. I got friends stationed near most of you guys on the forum. Hope everything goes smooth. I see you've had some troubles in the past. I have too but each time something fails I improve it. And each time something gets replaced I try doing it myself. I have learned a lot from the R32 and I'm very interested in cars in general.
I meet plenty of automotive enthusiast.
Some like lifted trucks. Jesse used to design rock crawler suspensions. All my family drive trucks.
Some like bikes and cars. Zack loves kill'n his KLR. As we grow wise we buy fast CARs over bikes.
Some prefer JDM. I don't care for it but we do share a certain interest in the import scene.
Others think Domestics rule. Rear wheel drive with V8 engines. That's cool but at least drive the damn thing.
Then you have the bagged crowd. Trucks or cars but bagged and laid out. Looks awesome, Louisiana won't have that.
BUT, EURO Trash is here to last. Love me some imported Euro automotive perfection.
No matter what you like you gotta get in with both feet. You gotta get them hands dirty. You gotta smell and taste this obsession we all know and love. Build ya car, keep us posted and don't lose focus. You want a 500 hp AWD Golf? Well by God, YOU GONNA HAVE THAT 500 hp GOLF! Image a guy in a boosted Nissan or a Turd domestic V8 get'n raped by a mk IV GOLF. Everyone will try you, few will keep up. Cops won't even notice you pulling away from a yellow corvette. LoL
Sorry we didn't talk more at WITW. We go there with one thing in mind, DRIVING. Cars, cars, cars....right?
But we end up cooking and drinking and talking and having fun. Either way it's always cool to see you.
I guess we'll rely on the VORTEX to talk about cars.
I'm gonna leave a video here for You. It may motivate you. Half of America has already watched it; even though it came out 2 days ago. You probably seen it already..seen it TWICE. Either way, I'm leaving it HERE. Free of charge for all to enjoy. Now, the subject is not the R32. It's not even Volkswagen. It doesn't even include AWD cars. There ARE a few Euro's and they all geaux FAST. These guys are into DRIFT cars. I know, I know....I know what you thinking. NOT ANOTHER DRIFT'n VIDEO! Well, This one is different. Grab a chair and a cold beer. Sit down, relax. Clear ya mind. Watch the vid for what it is. Guys like us chasing the dream. Building their cars and learning along the way. Guys going for broke in a game we never win. It's cool, it's fun and it makes sense. After watching I don't feel the need to drift. But I do feel compelled to move forward with my Golf R32. Here it is, bra! MOTIVATION !! Enjoy.

*R32 1518*, biggest head ever to fit in a GOLF!
Congrats, turd burglar.
11mm of lift is not stock. Yes, 11mm of lift is what TT and Schrick cams have.
Also, no way in hell I would run 12mm of lift on stock valve springs and retainers.
If you are bored, lots of fun stuff to read here- http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...y-rocker-ratio
If you aren't bored and already have your hands full as it appears.. bottom line, stick with the Schricks.
444hp/413tq - bone stock, all motor, Volkswagen.
Josh, it was an idea. I would need to redo the head. And need deeper valve reliefs on the. Pistons . I've decided to stay with the 272s. All in all I'm not blowing 3 + k on the head / new pistons.
I have found a company that makes supercharger pulleys to make A cog crank pulley . 100% 1 off design that could be added to their product line if more are interested . Also it's not ass rape for pricing either
If u buy them lol
pretty sure by November I'm gonna buy myself a set.
What CAMs should I run? Looking to have a 2nd head cleaned up & polished here shortly. Wanna add the CAMs and those Springs then get a TUNE from JEFF. What injectors should I run? Want me to run a clean set of OEM or something bigger?
Hey, I need that gasket on the windshield washer reservoir. You pulled that pump out and the fluid leaked on the floor....what size is that gasket? 1", 1 1/8", 1 1/4", 1 1/2"? My car pisses every time I park, lol
*R32 1518*, biggest head ever to fit in a GOLF!
Congrats, turd burglar.
Find me on MW3
Jay I'm single now too lol. Kevin , I'll measure it tomorrow am . Army got cancelled lol.
I just looked at the newest pics, you been workin son....
Enjoy the build, its a great amount of fun.
And you need to fix the bentley, I HATE the non-paper manual, wake up mr bentley....
So I have been in contact with a company to produce a Cog Crank Pulley for the build. I am sending my current 8 rib to them for reengineering and should expect it back within week. Im going with a 60 Tooth Crank and a 30 Tooth blower pulley. Bill was kind enough to explain and show me a blower conversion tool for the COGs... neat little tool.
I also received my DV from Forge today. Because my bentley still seems to be MIA, I am gonna try to pull the exhaust maifold, subframe and whatever else tonight
I will be interested to see how the cog crank pulley setup progresses and works out. I'd like install this configuraiton too, but my main concern is the harmonic dampening though. Like, has this even been fully tested on a 3.2 VR6 engine? I know VF did it way back in the day with that stg4+ thing.
Made some more progress
Removed the accessory bracket, PS pump, AC compressor. Since my bentley took a dump ( gonna order a new one) I did some stuff i felt more comfortable with. I also removed the Subframe, Power Steering Rack, Control Arms and cleaned everything up. I removed the ****y old tie rods in prep for the brand new ones. Also removed the OEM EX Manifold and Downpipes.
I decided to delete the AC and the AUX Radiator and jeebus i have so much more space now haha
To remove the Subframe and PS Steering Rack, u need to..
REMOVE the bolt that secures the Steering Column to the Rack pinion gear
Then I removed the Tie Rods
Sway Links / Control Arms
I lowered the SubFrame a little and removed the banjo Bolts for the Power Steering In/Out
Then out it came
Rear of the Motor
Here is a side by side of the OEM headers and the SuperSprint headers.
Hopefully Tomorrow I can get the head off, we will see
