Just picked up a new car as a project. Its a 03 GLI VR6 6 speed. Previous owner apparently hit something on the road cracking the oil pan. Then thought it would be smart to keep driving until it stopped. So I can only assume the motor is completly junk. I am going to pull it apart to see what it looks like. But I can only assume at this point.
My current plan is to find a decent used motor to put in it, or atleast to start with. Do all the general up keep while the motor is out just because it is easier. Here is where my main question comes in.
My plan is to get the car running, driving, inspected. After all is good. Its getting a turbo. I have had both a 12 valve VR6 and a 1.8t. I got this with the intension on building a fast car. So what is there I could/should do while the motor is out or apart the will be needed for the turbo, yet won't be an issue while its still stock for a little bit? I don't want to go huge on power. Just make it fun, daily driveable and reliable.
