S33nyboy's 1.8t build , the most difficult ever? Swedish style!
I've been off here for a while because I've bought a German tanks (e46 m3 :-D)
But now I'm back as me and my dad have a new project which we plan to engine transplant with a vag 1.8t engine lump. It's a Volvo p1800 1971 coupe RWD.
I've got lots to do first like media blast the whole thing and all its parts. Then respray it etc in white ( my dads choice) . We are swaying towards a vag 1.8t lump because there are plenty of smashed up ones for sale or breaking, cheap parts and wealth of knowledge available to me on here and locally RTECH. We are NOT going for massive power probably around 200bhp but need reliability as plan to show the car once finished . It's going to be a long project not rushed as we are both very very busy with work. Enough talk here's pics
All opinions welcome, any help or hints are too. Ill have loads of questions when we get to the engine bit but for now I'm thinking of buying a complete donor car and working from there. Like a 97/98 a3 1.8t from scrapyard..........
