Hi guys, new on here but been working on my car for a year now.
Stumbled across this site through google images accidentally, so thought I'd make myself an account
It's probably a bit different to your average car on here... Razz
I'll let the photos do the talking:

That's it for now pretty much, looking to get the engine block shotblasted next, then i can start re-building.
Sputter bearings on the conrods, ported, polished and valve re-seated head, seals, gaskets, and possibly big end bearings replaced, .240mm (up from .189, std upgrade is .216) injector nozzles on a land rover 2.5L 300TDi fuel pump, source/make some manifolds, stage 3 clutch, etc etc Smile target, 200hp, ~380nm

I've a hell of a lot to go yet, but hopefully you'll see this around sometime next year

thanks, i keep changing my mind so it's going to look like a bit of all sorts of styles, but general direction is the hillclimbing motorsporty theme. Might even sticker it up yet, and considering a cage, both for safety and for the theme
thank you, if it's the one in your profile pic it looks sweet!
It's an AHU, same as the 1Z found in the MK3 golf/vento/passats

IVA test here i come eh...

Possibly some cheeky sideways when it's done too Razz

modified a subtle splitter to go on the cabrio bumper

Oh and bought some wheels too, Kerscher Carmona, 16x7.5 and 16x9 for £161 Twisted Evil looking forward to mocking them up in the arches. got to import them first though...

thanks guys, i've got the build in a few places, try and keep them somewhat up to date.
not done an awful lot lately, shitty weather. probably going to remould the front wings in fibreglass and raise the arches up a few inches. probably going back to coils allround too

you can see the line of where the arch should go up to after

threw the front end back together
