Also a big thanks to everyone for the help and answering my questions!
Wikus, Chris, Miggz, Dwayne, Tiaan, Shaun, appreciate it
Awesome man! If I had money I would of bought all that stuff from you today... Rods, pistons, everything! Love this thread! One day I'll be doing mine and I'll be asking you for questions hehe
Only my pleasure champ!
Small update, the pistons and rods have gone off to the engineer just to make sure all is in order and clearing properly.
As well as all the seals for the head.
Also got some more goodies:
Fan belt for A/C delete.
New SACHS clutch kit
Head Set & Head Bolts
That's it for now, like usual thanks for looking
Awesome bud! I don't even want to know how much you've spent so far but I'm sure its worth it!!
Is that clutch and upgrade for the OEM kit?
Have sent the flywheel in for skimming, new oil lines are being made up and the engine mountings filled.
Also some general pics of new items.
New oil pump, chain and tensioner.
Some Motul fluids (Oil, Brake Fluid, Gearbox Oil, Anti Freeze)
Then a not so secret little goodie.
And the Flywheel skimmed
Will give it a bit of clean aswell, that's all for now
Thanks for looking.
Not a big update :/ been busy and haven't had the time to do much, a few more parts have arrived, and will also be sending my mountings in to be filled with Polyurethane (Thanks Dwayne).
NGK BCPR8EVX-11 (Will be re gaped)
EBC Yellow Stuff (Brake upgrade is on hold for now)
New OEM links and clips
OEM injector inserts
That's it for now
Awesome Ash! I wish I was your right now
drilled will always crack with hard use dude. theres no real advantage to the drilling.
love this progress though
Lol come now bro, move it up. Get them updates posted. Waiting to see how thing are going!
As demanded by some here are some updates. Nothing big, but still updates
The previous valves ended up not being what i wanted so i ordered what was needed (all 20) and new valve guides (all AE)
Then i got to cleaning and spraying a few bits and bobs, aswell as changing shocks and shock mountings.
Next was thinking of replacing my current DV with this one
One side assembled
Next was removing and welding shut nipples not needed on the TB and IM
IM being Sprayed
The Valves and guides went to the engineer on Monday, and the new pistons went in on Tuesday. Now i just wait for everything then i can start assembling.
Enjoy and thanks for looking.
Lol thanks for the update bro.
Very nice progress you making there
Yep. Dropping it off this afternoon. Can't wait any longer for it and I keep getting the run around from this friend of mine for the parts (which I've already paid him for). He makes arrangements with me and changes his mind. Then he also tells me he doesn't have the time to do it or help, so if he can, he will have to do it in his free time and will take a while.
Wow the golf is pretty sick!!
Your car is coming along nicely... It sucks waiting for parts man! Hope you get everything you need soon...
Pleasure my boy! Glad I could be apart of this build
Nice keep up the good work
loving this build thread, and oooh that golf
Yay more progress! Things are coming together nicely
