      it wasnt a 3.2 ... or at least one of the guys in the blue shirts was misinformed .. i asked and he said it was a 24v .. i said 2.8 24v? and he said yeah .. i then asked if it had a awd swap and he said no and i laughed at him .. all that work and money and you kept the car front wheel drive ..

      oh Aaron your going to get me going! UGH!

      aluminum bolt together cage...worthless
      huge turbo on a motor that barely runs, and no water line hooked up - FAIL
      5spd, really? why bother???
      oh and the air setup is a dual paddle single gauge dual needle setup...come on, you have $5k worth of chrome and a $5k set of wheels on the car and you cant pony up and get a digital management setup....

      oh and the attempt at hardlines on the brakes....

      o2m is a 6sp only...this was a 5spd, likely from a 12v motor...the bell housings are the same....or should be...

      Yeah I don't understand the 5 speed thing since it's a 20th that came with an O2M but that's what I kept hearing all day

      right but its a 24v .. didnt all 24vs (04 GLI / later mk4 VR6s) only come with o2m 6 speeds? and judging by the way the coilpacks sit it is a 24v 2.8 .. the 3.2s sit more straight up .. that seems like a step backwards ... god i cant even think of the monster you could of built with the amount of money put into that car

      You can definitely do an O2J to a 24v with the correct bell housing but it makes no sense to do with a build like that lol

      Shame there's all that potential in the bay and the car isn't/can't even be driven. I just don't see the point in building a car with insane amounts of power and then just letting it idle on/off the trailer

      And the 20 people wearing tshirts for the car was really cheesy. I understand everyone being excited but come on...

      your missing the point...JDM-JTI is only pointing out that it makes no sense to use the trans he did on the motor and turbo....is a 1.8t trans coupled to a monster motor....anyone that builds a 1.8t let along a turbo vr6 switches to an 02m...

      get your facts straight...kid

      I'm just wondering, does a show only car really need to run? It's only purpose is to look pretty...

      As far as top dawg goes. I don't think shop cars should be judged in a show that built around enthusiasts. I'm not saying they can't be there, it's just not fair to the guys that build their own cars.

      Joe def. was a well deserved win. And I have a feeling the judges take notice that he has built effort into that car for years and he only continues to make it better. You could walk around Joe's car 20 times and still probably miss the smallest detail.

      lifes not fair, and the show isnt about enthusiasts any more either. its about toolboxes and who can get drunk and do something stupid, and judging by a lot of these threads, about imports.


      just sayin....


      shop built or not. enthusiast or short term scenester making a splash. a nice car is a nice car. thats why the show field exists. top dawg is best of the best (yes, open to debate every year, i understand...) but if its money and time thrown at the car, then so be it. if you dont have the money or the time to get a car into the top, get it in the show field and compete there. thats why theres so many classes for so many cars. you cant compare the two different builds really.

      Actually, Houcker, you can buy just the bell housing from Germany, it's not too expensive. I know, because I looked into it a few years back...

      The car in question is def. a 24v. The injector angles on the fuel rail give it away.

      It works both ways, but in the end one would think the O2M swap would be worth it if you're going to go 'all the way'.

      Got your email dude bud.

      that was my point! if your going to dump that kind of $$ into a car...do it right....but i guess if its only "make it clean" then either will work...but would laugh to see someone try and put 500+ HP thru an o2j

      sounds good, just checkin!
