I put IE forged rods in the block to handle the power . Most parts where purchased from S&, google it if you are not familiar. Plug and play harnes, including drive by wire gas peda, has OBD port .

Suspensio, ST coil over, front triangle ba, rear 28 mm autotech sway bar, new poly rear beam bushing, new front a arms with bushing, Dunlop direzza tires, 15x8 snowflake replicas.
Interior is a solid 8 out of 1, some fading on rear panel, seats are excellent, headliner is perfect, dash is excellent, deck lid is perfect, carpet is excellent. I replaced door window seals on both sides. I have original owners manua, original steering wheel and original radio all included .
Exterior is original paint, a few spots the paint is worn through, couple dings on the front fende, all that can be easily touched up . I have new stripe set I can include.
Now the ba, I started the car over 2 years ag, since then I moved from Florida to Main, haven't had much time for it with the new hous, I finally completed the car to sell a few months ag, while out on a drive last wee, the timing tensioner nut came off and bent the valves, my fault . I just don't have the time for this ca, I did reset the timing, engine spins freely so their should only be damaged valves . All it needs is a new head or the valves replaced. A head can be found for under $300. Feel free to check my username out on vwvortex or r3vlimited. I have been a member there for years and have built and sold several cars with happy customers. $300, a head gasket, some head bolts and a weekend you can have a clean 350 whp mk1 GT, these cars are only going up in price and extremely hard to find this clean . I'm not desperate to sel, worse case I will throw the cover on it in the garage and fix it over the winter. I do have another 1.8t bottom end with 60 k but no hea, original suspension with H&R stock height springs with KYB shocks I can include. I have a video clip of it running before the timing tensioner nut came off . I can also send more pics . Feel free to come look at the car. I have a trailer so can get it to a shipping terminal if that helps . Please contact me with all arrangement, I prefer certified bank check that must clear before car leaves my yard and $500 deposit required after sale.
