(Seats were redone 5 years ago) now for the best part, of course, nothing ORIGINAL in the engine bay or mechanical. All redone, upgraded, replaced with newer and better! Super fast crazy fun! 12.6 sec 1/4 mile!
This car had 4 years worth of work done to it, until it ended up with this turbo engine, Here is the long story of this car, pick up from a barn find about 10 years ago, no rust, excellent shell, took it home and fixed the engine with 1.8 from a 87 Scirocco with low milage, I was happy for a year... the following two years I kept the enginebut changed and upgraded internals changed pistons to increase compression to 13.5 and reached 220Hp, of course that was not enough...
Than I ended up changing the block to a 9A 2.0 bottom from a 92 GTI that I ended up boring to 2.1 and installed lower compression pistons 8.5 and used an 87 head with dual overhead that was reworked for better air flow,cleaned, changed to larger valves and install a turbo and did all the plumbing myself added fuel injection, stand alone injection and ignition changed suspension and of course muffler
Drove the car for a day and broke the transmission.. change transmission to 020 5 speed with LIMITED slip differential (LSD) with tempted reinforced gears and 4 puck clutch and all done, sort of...added water injection to cool the intake, and added additional auxiliary radiator with a fan.
This car is running in its current condition with this engine and suspension for 5 years! And about 800 miles,Extremely reliable!!! Bullet proof,Fires up every time with no issues! ( the plugs do get fouled up and need to be changed every year)most recent, Brand new OE fuel pump
