Mark smith here...I am the owner of factory five racing and figured it was time to share my latest project and company Smyth Performance with the main stream vw crowd on this forum. Over on www.tdiclub.com in the tdi conversions section, we have been finishing up a concept mid engine kit car based on the vw golf/jetta mark4.
What I started as a discussion on www.ffcobra.com (thread is called "mark smith, time to talk") which is an independent discussion forum that mainly talks about factory five racing products and builds, has evolved into a new company that will be manufacturing this kit. Soooo...I am done positioning the tdi powerplant in a mid engine layout and am doing the 1.8T/vr6 powered version next week...here is where we need the help. I need to make sure that the aftermarket turbo kits fit in the new position. What kits are you using and how do you like them?
If forum members with experience and interest with the various kits could let us know their likes and dislikes...especially of the cheaper 800 dollar kits on ebay..I will buy one and engineer the room for it in the car.
Project can be followed on http://www.ffcobra.com http://www.tdiclub.com or http://smythperformance.blogspot.com/
Let me know what you think and thanks ahead of time.
