    me and my mate have gone halfs on this.

    [​IMG]


    it will be used for track use and road use.

    its already on Koni coilovers and has a scorpion DTM exhaust. sadly engine wise its a 1.3 haha. but we have got a ABF for it (ABF is VW's 2.0 16v)

    engine will be running

    GSXR1000 throttle bodies
    4 Branch
    Cams
    and possibly bored out to a 2.1 (depends how worn bores are when we strip it down)

    after a few days on it weve took out what we dont need ;)

    He's going with carbs and losing the fuel injection in the process I think? Bike carbs are bigger or more cost effective?

    still keeping the fuel injection, gonna be using a fuel rail from a 20v T.

    instead of having one throttle bodie for 4 ports, using bike throttle bodies lets you have one TB for every port. also using bike ones is a cheaper way instead of spending mega money for a propper kit. :)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    also started to make the manifold for the Throttle Bodies, started with the lower half of a KR manifold chopped off what i didnt want and got it machined too the same level at work.

    [​IMG]

    once i've finished doing bits too the manifold these will be getting welded onto it. manged to get some Ali tube from work too keep the weight down ;)

    Looks like you are going all out with this project with a whole new rear end, can't find myself spending the same type of money on my Golf to be honest, but the Wheels I can stretch to. :moa:

    I got a pair of S3/TT rear calipers for £50 off fleabay on buy it now, I know the Mk4 rears are a replacement for the Mk2's with the change of brake lines, are the Mk4 items fetching more money for this reason?

    its been a long time since a update.

    things had to get put on hold for a while due to me been worried about keeping my job due the recession and with me been in the Engineering business it hit that area of work quite hard, but luckily ive still got my job and work has been picking up more bits for the golf have been ordered.

    in the next few weeks the following should all be fitted

    GTI rear Axle
    MK4 Rear Calipers
    G60 Front Calipers
    Polly Bush Kit all round
    Braided hose kit front and rear
    and a few other bit n bobs.

    i will post pics as progress is made

    Nice one Gav, I'd like some more info on Mk4 rear calipers fitment, know you need Mk4 rear brake hoses for the conversion, my standard 1989 rears are starting to stick on one side! I have G60's in the garage also, but the standard 16V brakes are pretty new from what I can see.

    Alright jojo, for the mk4 calipers to go on a mk2, like you said previously you need to get the mk4 to mk2 conversion brakeline kit or you can make your own but for the price of the kit might as well get the braided hoses, as for mounting the caliper just use your oem caliper carrier. My mate sent me a mms today as he's put the front poly bushes in a spare set of bottom arms we had. Were also trying to get another set of wheels haha, will still be keeping the mims though :p

    Gav, what are you doing with the Sebrings once youve got the MIMs back on? Would you be tempted to sell them? Ive got a Rallye tucked up in one of my garages that Im trying to get near on perfect before selling it and could use a spare set of Sebrings to get refurbed

    My mate put carbs on his mk 1 golf running a 2.0 litre passat engine and he still swears it made the car slower than the ECU. think it was a bog brothers kit it he put on! will be interesting to see what results you get!
