I guess it's too late to suggest a VR6 swap...


To be honest the VR6 swap is not for me, I will hardly drive it once done and when I do I just want a steady reliable cruiser.

Project looks great though! Do you read Performance Volkswagen magazine?

Thanks mate appreciate the feedback, keeps me motivated. I don't buy magazines to be honest but might pick one up.

I wanted a clean Mk3 GTI with a VR6 for my first car, ended up buying a Mini. :D

Not updated this build in a while, load's more progress since my last update but still a slow going project mainly due to my slight ocd.

 

Few more engine parts painted.
