    nice fabrication for the bulkhead. Wont you get pretty good air out of the bay even with the bonnet closed? Surely the air will flow out of the airvents on the bonnet?? I agreee that it wouldnt be anywhere the same, i just wondered if it was sufficient without attracting attention from the raised rear bonnet

    So you’ve built it, what are you going to do with it now?

    Driving’s so much more interesting and fun than just building cars.

    What a nice ride.

    I hope it is okay to raise a question about The gearbox, is it custom or taken from another VAG model ? My Golf GTI G60 Syncro is picked ud in the UK this summer, with a S3 engine doing 265 hp, but the gear box is not optimal. When giving max throttle it wont let the gearstick go until it is low in rpm. At normal to fresh driving it goes 100% normal – so that is why im interested in what you have done with your gearbox :)

    Regards

    Thanx for answer :) I will have to look into this, do you have a place where I can look, or is it just to google it ?
    Btw, I saw on one of your pictures, you had a piece behind you turbo in front of the torpedo piece – is it custom or is it something I could buy? It looks very nice…
    Best regards

    ha ha ha see what ya mean now …unfortunatly i made it from 2.5mm ali plate and formed it to fit and the carbon skuttle tray cover was just a strip of plain knit carbon trimmed to shape …

    easy to do though …

    very impressed. following much the same path but with a 16vT, any updates on the mapping side of things?

    got a few questions, what fuel tank, pump and lines are you using?

    and what driveshafts are you using? narrow or wide track and for the back are they custom or have you got standard CV’s them?
