(Methany) Will's coupe on meth

Postby 77blazerdriver » Mon Oct 17, 2016 2:26 pm

So it's time to get into a cleaner shell for the 1.8t swap. The 4door car needs a lot of work to be brought back up to par. including some issues that are coming from running the MK4 pedals. I have the correct pedal setup for the swap and will be addressing a lot of the current issues.

Kenny found a 1990 Jetta Atlas gray coupe 8 valve for $100 bucks including the meth pipe in the center console.

And so it begins

USRT Stage 11 Meth injection.
Rear cage
Big flares

The front tires suggest a lot of burnouts were performed prior to the car's retirement.

More like the 225/45/17's on the rear didn't fit on the front :eek:

OK, Stage 1 is to get it registered in my name. Going to put the 8v back together and smog it so that I have the pink slip in hand before swapping the 1.8T into it. Good news is it should just need to have the head reinstalled.

Been stockpiling some of the parts for when It is ready for the 1.8t. Going to fix a lot of the little issues from the first swap and clean a lot of the mess under the hood up.

Got my hands on all the stuff I need to get the car Ref'd once the 1.8T goes in it. I have also been working on getting the suspension parts figured out so that I can get them installed before I swap. The goal is to have the car down for as little time as possible.
