      Ran a new personal best today at Fall show and go. 12.58 @ 106.87. It was the exact same setup as my 12.75 @ Waterfest. Same E70 gas that i bought in april. Really happy with the car. Developed another trans problem but will get it all sorted out and back to the track.

      I weigh 145. Car weighs 2110. I'd like to get some more weight out of it but don't really want to give up heat. Nothing is cut just removed unneeded weight.

      Rebars door bars. Seats. Undercoating. Alum exhaust. Still has dash and heat. No cutting. 2110 is with just stock driver seat. 2150 with 2 stock seats. Still got some more weight to take out.

      My mk3 in street trim (front half interior) w vr6 was 2450 w me at a solid 200lbs. Hes right where he should be. Getting to a class legal 2150 is going to take more work.

      4 cyl is 1900lbs. I don't see how that is ever happening. Let alone the car being competitive without throwing a lot of money at it.

      Not without cutting. Maybe with no dash and lexan, which would be legal. The only reason to run a 6cyl is for ballast.

      Nice build

      Very similar specification to my engine, but I still have the 86,4 forged standard crank.

      Did you have clearance problems with the pistons and head? I had to grind allot in the head.
      According to Wössner this should not be necessary...

      I use my engine for circuit racing and it has been running sweet for three seasons until now when the bolts for the triggerwheel sheared and came out through the block...

      I had the same piston to head problem. I worked with wossner and got it all fixed. If someone buys a set now they will work without modification. You shoul try tacking trigger wheel on.

      Nice, I have to buy a new set as one piston was damaged by the broken trigger wheel. However this means I have to build a new head as it was modified to fit the old piston design... I noticed you have oversized exhaust valves, I have oversized intake valves and standard sized exhaust valves.

      Ben ran a p.b. of 12.50 this past weekend and was #1 qualifier for 12.50 index. Went out third round due to a slight bump when getting on the 2-step and being staged deep. Post the pictures and vids Ben.
