And K03s turbo setup is being removed, im on the hunt for a K04 turbo, lines, mani

Well lots of updates, Some not so good but hey ho im still Vag'ing.

The FWD Golf is going, Needed to raise finances so all my 1.8T running gear is going, i decided on a V6 lump meanwhile.

And ive ended up taking a full 4motion V6. So got that coming,its in black magic, 5DR still, kinda hoped it be 3 door but nevermind, all my stuff will swap over, Rest will be sold.

So 4WD is a massive plus, Long term plans are to raise more money and supercharge it, So no more turbo's.

I'm still building my 1.8T engine and putting it on sale so carrying on:

Block honed and skimmed:







Spent alot of money at the powdercoaters as this engine is going to be spot on(as new essentially)

Heres example of rocker, ive done water pipe, sump,engine mounts, alt bracket too.



More soon !
