The engine was rebuilt 12,xxx miles ago with brand new internals with the exception of the rods and crankshaft (crankshaft was balanced) which were shotpeend and inspected for durability. The long block was assembled by Lou of LRB Racing in Franklin, NJ (I'm getting a copy of the build sheet from him), who also did all the port and polishing work.
Essentially during the build of the car anything mk3 that could fit was installed, with the exception of interior as it was originally built to be a sleeper of sorts. The oil was changed religiously, and is currently running 5-30 Royal Purple. The car runs and hauls ass now, but with a better tune you'd see more power.
There's much more - a ton of little things - I just can't think of them. I put at least $8k into the motor. Anyone who knows what they're looking at will be able to tell for themselves.
drivers side window needs a new crank
front valence could use some work
tires will do for now, but could stand to be replaced
standard mk2 wear and tear on the body and paint - no major issues
weather stripping on the car needs to be replaced
missing axle back muffler
working to fix a maf issue and a coolant issue
This is definitely a driver's car; the interior is there, but it's mostly bare essentials (mk2 GTI bucket seats and rear seat). The carpet and all sound deadening materials were stripped. There's no power steering.
I loved this car but it's time to move on. Due to financial issues I don't believe I was ever really able to tap the car's true potential. I'm confident that if someone is willing to put in the time and effort they would have a truly great show or drag car - it's already halfway there, someone just has to make it pretty.
The motor is ODB2 the engine management is a stock ecu with a techtonics chip burned to the motor spec's. The build sheet i can get at anytime but i havent had any serious interests in the car yet so i havent gone and got it as i work all the time. And at this point as i need the cash im dropping the price down again. No reasonable off will be refused at this point, not looking for trades tho
