      Sounds great! Judging by how much the passenger seat was moving, looks like it pulls like a mother!


      Buckle up

      Sweet build and I gotta ask...where'd you get this car?

      My wife sold my '83 GTI for me while I was deployed early last year. It looks like you have the same MR2 wheels on this one as I did. Rust spots on the back look the same too. She told me she had sold it to someone who had just gotten back from deployment. It'd be something if it made it's way into your hands.

      Good luck with the build!

      HA!! I just looked through it again with my wife and we saw the shifter. Tell-tale sign it's my old GTI.

      I'm very glad to see this car is getting the love it needed. It was good to me, but I never the got the chance to clean it up the way I wanted. Hopefully I'll see it again!

      awesome. Im sure this thing rips, i have a similar setup in a mk3. Id recommend moving FPR. The vibration and weight can cause the AN fittings to break. Id hate to see the car catch on fire.

      just curious as to how you think the FPR would break off the rail? it has fuel like running to it and its not like the FPR is solid mounted to the chassis and then mounted to the fuel rail.

      you need some bumpers for that thing? i've got a pair of aluminum gti bumpers if you want em
      How does a rotary work? This one's easy: the magic triangle spins in the peanut and then apex seals come out.

      Engine vibration. Have seen it on multiple cars. You guys can do anything you want.
