San Diego, CA 92020
This blog post is a bit over due, since this project was finished a few months ago but it's still notable, none-the-less and in our humble opinions, deserves a bit of publicity.
A good friend and client of ours, Tyler, bought this MkII GTi from a garage mechanic that attempted a 1.8T motor swap but gave up before finishing the project. As the pictures will show, an attempt was made but fell a bit short of being a running vehicle. Simply put, it was a mess but all the major components were there. Once in our hands, we fab'd up the necessary parts for the T3/T4 turbo and intercooler, performed the necessary plumbing and wiring. Now she's on the road tearing up canyons and road courses all around SoCal! She han't been on a dyno since completion but after a couple runs with some formidable oponents, there's no denying this car's exceptional speed and prowess.
A few of the notable components include:
Audi 20v 1.8T
T3 / T4 Turbo
Tial BOV & Wastegate
Team Dynamics 14" Gold wheels
Bilstein PSS9 coilovers
Full Roll Cage
