Shes clean enough!

Those engines however, are garbage!

Exactly the same as the AGG lump i dropped into my old Passat just different manifolds. They can't take the punishment! Big ends are too soft and soon start rattli.g their nut in!

For the money your spending you'd be better off changing it to.a 1.8t 20v

Yeah I agree, Not the best engine, but as for not taking the punishment I'm not so sure. Many people have said the same thing about the 1.8t but too many of the have been thrashed and not worth messing with, but its definitely something I'm thinking of, just finding a decent lump and weighing up the cost of what would be better to use.

I've popped 2 AGG lumps! Whereas my PB engine got me to 200k and still pulled like a train!

20vt are really prone to oil pump failure, and as you say, being thrashed.

Quick update




Started scraping all the sound deadening material off the floor.. Such a tedious job!


Before


After!

Dont worry about the fact ive painted the fuel lines, their getting binned as their too small for the engine ill be running LOLL and ill probably give it another coat at a later date

That was it really, A quiet Saturday but slow progress is better than no progress!

Are you gonna put in subframe connectos or just gonna use the cage to stiffen the chassis as they usually require you to cut the floor?

I would like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to Richy59 and TORA for the Sponsorship on my MK2 Golf!


This space here will soon have a TORA logo filling it, and hopefully will see a few TORA representatives at Brands hatch and Snetterton this year!

This really is some of the best news Ive had all year!
