Ya but what about the 500whp this car is going to see? my 12v turbo made 357whp and was told good luck with the 02J if I wanted anymore power.
Anyways, got ALL the wiring out of the car and am headed to the volkswagen graveyard this weekend to find a mkIII subframe and some other goodies. I lucked out and found this guy who has TONS on mk2 &3 stuff
Nice find man looks like this is gunna be a awesome project to see come together
Thanks! Im still working on stripping all the sound deadening from it, hopefully the car will be ready for media blasting in a couple weeks, decided against the acid dipping. After that getting a cage welded in, and seat rails for some sparco's i may be snagging for it.
What is the build date on the car? Is it a 3VW VIN? Reason I ask is the car is 1987~earlier spec.
Hmmm.. I am not sure, ill have to check it out this weekend

Who is building your cage?
Heck yes! I cant wait to get this one going, will get some update pictures this weekend, but its more dismantling stuff, getting ready to be media blasted. And I have a good friend at PFI motorsports that will be doing the cage after the blasting
Other than that I am hunting a transmission, cant decide between the o2j or o2m, and will be picking up a Precision 6266 T4 .81 for it and lugtronic management
Hopefully I can get the car to the stripper next week! I am considering sanding but not thrilled about the idea, also have the chromoly for the cage, and tracked down a mk3 k frame and passat front support
