Okay, if it's gonna be a GOOD paint job (which I assume it will be) do root beer. If it turns out even half as sexy as der Voosh, it'll be covered with drool nonstop. It's a gorgeous colour, and who cares about fashion trends?

Glad to see an update to this thread !

Do you plan to use the 020 transmission you have now or change it to cable shift 02 type transmission?

Looking forward to seeing Scirocco with this new engine :D

update

here some updates, checked and cleaned the block, got the head back, painted the intake, ordered the clutch/pressure plate and flywheel combo. picked up a NOS blaupunk 1987 head unit, got an intercooler, from an 1.8T mk4, also got an ECU and wiring harness. here's some pic's


Pile of crap, don't need half of it

I think I like it better in Silver. But it looks nice regardless.
What kind of wheels are they? Very sharp. And what springs is it on in the first few pics?

Not sure if you can use the 8v clutch, hopefully someone else can help you there but I'd say think about using an 02a or 02j box.. much stronger. Also the 020 will rev it's nuts off! MK3 golf diesel boxes are a good choice.. hope this helps

Thank's trying to get her on the road as fast as I can

it depend on your driving style, the 020 is not the strongest tranny, I heard some horror story and some others ride them without problem. am keeping it cause am on budget, and am not really hard on the car, am not flooring it too offend. I would have keep the 1.8 8V but I want something more reliable, and without 25 some years under his belt. I could have swap it for an ABA, but got the engine for almost nothing. also I want to keep the car as stock as possible, and don't want to swap for cable shift.

thanks she will stay silver ;) they are BBS rm with staggered lips. the spring are raceland coilover.

the 8V clutch can be used, the best setup as I read on the net is a 16V pressure plate, and 8V HD disc and the 8V flywheels, I ordered the clutch from BSA it's an 16Vp/p with and 8V disc and a lightened flywheel. for this year am keeping the close ration tranny, and I will see how it runs, if it's not good, I'll search an diesel tranny for the years after.

Admittedly I don't know what they run to, but I have a small number of single-pin connectors that don't appear to connect anywhere, I can't imagine what they're for though. There's also that Blue-Red/Blue-Yellow/Blue-Green connector that should be pinned near the ECU in the rain tray, the diagram I have right here says that it has no connection.
