All of the engine work was done this spring.
There's maybe 5,000 miles on it.
For the past year I've lived only 4 miles from work, so mileage accumulates slowly.
It gets away from 95% of the cars on the road.
Anyone who's not in a sportscar- it's like they're standing stand

if i weren't in pa, i'd be down there in a heartbeat. +1 for a gorgeous car. if you wouldn't mind maybe pm'ing how long it took to do the mods and how much was dumped for this project? i am curious... this is exactly what i'm looking for. still owe on my car at the moment too
How long did it take [install time]? Well, that will vary based on experience.
I've been a VW enthusiast for over a decade, so I know my way around these cars fairly well. If I'm not confident with my abilities, I have our Master Tech knock it out for me. The turbo install, for example, was done by him in an afternoon, likewise on the clutch install.
Cost? If you start to add up the retail cost of everything, it's probably around $10,000 worth of aftermarket parts. I spent a little less then retail given my unique relationship with BFI, so I might've saved 15% off total expenses.
Let's put it this way - there's no way you would be able to buy a stock 2008 2.5l with 60k miles and build it to where it's at right now for the same or less then what I'm selling it for.
The right buyer will come around sooner then later. Once they do, they'll be stoked to own this car- it's really a blast to drive!
