    I haven't had much going on lately as I've had some set backs with parts. I found out the intermediate shaft I needed had to be specifically from a 2.0 16v. I used a 1.8 16v shaft and oil pump drive gear. It's been hell to find those parts as they came in a very short production run, but I finally have some on the way from Canada. The motor has to be pulled out to swap the shafts, so I haven't done anything else since I would just have to take it off. Next weekend I'll be swapping them out and hopefully can get moving on this project again.

    I have more goodies that will be going in soon as well:

    Summit Racing Aluminum Fuel Cell 15gal
    Aeromotive A1000 fuel pump
    CXRacing Air to Water intercooler kit
    Parts to Fab up a Short Runner intake manifold

    She's starting to come together now. We've been slowly putting stuff together. Fuel cell, and pump should be officially mounted this week. RabbitPusher is also going to start making my downpipe.

    Well, I've been waiting on parts that got lost in the mail, and classes just started back up, so I haven't gotten a lot done. The engine bay is getting fuller. I now have a water, accessories bracket, alternator, and starter in. I also got a front end for the car from the junk yard, along with a 3 bar badge-less grille (not from the junk yard lol) RabbitPusher sprayed the grille for me and it came out pretty well. I also decided to Wet sand and polish the entire car. The paint is much better than I had expected. It is a 15 year old car with 310k on the body so it does have it flaws, but still came out very well. My buddy Dane also machined my head flange falt so we can start to build the intake manifold.

    I'm started to get excited now. It's starting to look like a real car, a 1000 times better than when I got it.

    Thanks guys.

    Nick, the other Justin has a thread going for his build now. It called after a death a rebirth or something like that. Should be in the golf section. Take a look and see if this is still something you are considering doing.

    VW Justin Made my downpipe yesterday. I'm happy. He tacked it up on the car, and then we went over to Fast Car's Inc. in Boca. Our buddy Dane works there, and they let Justin learn to Tig Weld on my Downpipe.

    Nothing super exciting to report. So far, I've put some new axles in, did a rear disk break conversion. I'm using MKIV Beetle calipers. Still waiting for my EBC yellow pads to come in. Also have my girling 60 twin piston calipers waiting to go on. I decided to put in a new set of cams, Tectonics Tuning 268/276. Fuel set is officially mounted, and hole cut for the sump. My Carburetor (EMS Pro, Megasquirt based Standalone) came in. I also cut my runners for my intake manifold. Just waiting for my buddy to mill them flat for me.

    Been pretty busy lately. I finally got my brake upgrade completed. Now I'm going to start working on my intake manifold.

    Not a ton, I'd say I broke the halfway point. Next I need to build the intake manifold, get a pedal cluster for a non drive-by-wire car, get a clutch master and slave, then make a fuel rail and run fuel lines, complete the chargepiping, then wire it up, get gauges, then belts and fluids and start her up.

    Intake manifold is done, on our part. Just waiting on the welder to finish up. Said it'll be done tomorrow. Also had some -10 fitting welded into my valve cover for a breather. I got a little so bored so I decided to paint and polish my valve cover. Oh, and the ports were cleaned up from what you see in the photos prior to being dropped off at the welder. We originally planned on putting bell mouths in the manifold, but I decided it wasn't worth it to me.

    Picked up the manifold from the welder this afternoon. It looks great. The 80mm throttle body looks huge on this thing.
