@JDMillhouse, yes its nimbus
@CodeMan, Thanks. Sure I will post some right now. Dont have a ton of pics of the interior right now.
@spa, Thanks for the kind words. A lot of hard work went into it. But yeah haha, on the intercooler. Reflex tuning said that the tune was good unintercooled for 12-14psi and I usually keep it below 11. I dont really drive the car too hard anyway. I have my M3 for that
Yep, that was the sound of my jaw dropping on the floor.... Amazing car man, much love coming from me!
Fantasitic, looks amazing dude and yes please enlighten us on what's going on with the motor.

i think that all the 20V heads had a spot for a distributor, but all the turbo versions had coilpacks and a block off plate. i think the NA motors in the rest of the world had distributors. somebody correct me if i'm wrong.
Let me shed some light on whats going on there. I few years ago reflex tuning manufactured a 1.8t swap kit for easy swaps into mkIII cars. The kit came with a custom machined piece that allows you to mount the distributor in the spot where the cam positioning sensor is usually mounted. The cam positioning sensor isn't used anymore. Then your running a custom tune through the aba ecu. Valve cover is an agn. Intake manifold was made with a stock lower runner and a new end take welded on. When i mentioned that it has an abf setup I was referring to the alternator and alternator bracket, which is one of my fav things in the bay its so clean having the alternator mounted lower and no tensioning pulleys.
The euro n/a 20v's I've seen looked nothing like that, even the valve cover doesn't look like his.
Edit: OP beat me to it.
Very nice man. I like that a lot!
I dont have any good pics of the bracket atm.
C2 motorsports did the tunes for these. There used to be a couple articles on here about the kit but I couldn't find them. Its a great setup and has been dead reliable for me. I had this engine in matt crookes old mk3.5 cabrio for awhile before I put it in this car.
I think that the most well known car with this same setup is the red mkIII jetta coupe with mkII flares and borbet A's. Reflex Tuning did all the work on that car.
edit: I bought the kit directly from reflex a couple years ago
