Haven't posted anything in awhile, fabbed up a passenger motor mount, cut the clutch fan mount so that it's just only a pulley now, was originally going to use the A4 radiator but didn't really like the fitment. Read a few things about using a VR6 MK3 radiator and I just happened to have a cracked one laying around for mock up. Still need to order a new one, it seems the cheapest option is an all aluminum eBay radiator, cheaper then any plastic tanks I've found online. Going to start wiring it soon, labeled everything in the 1.8t harness needed, the Bentley I ordered for the B3 didn't have any wiring diagrams... And now vortex won't accept the links from my image host 馃し馃徏馃 pretty cool

What Bentley manual did you get? I've owned more than a few of them, and they have all had the wiring flow charts in the back. There is a wiring only book, but it will have the same flow charts that are in the big book.

Have most of the wiring squared away, was having an issue with the starter not engaging. Bought a new starter, changed the flywheel, posted some things on Facebook, thanks to the help of the internet I realized after relocating the battery I forgot to install a engine to body ground!

So now the engine cranks, and I think the only wires I need to hook up are the coilpack and power to ECU wires that will go to 87a in the fuse box. Might have a first start video up soon..

Built a radiator/intercooler support as well, after it fires, will just have to plumb hoses, build exhaust.

It was a newer version, on the rear cover it says no wiring diagrams included, ended up buying the Audi wiring manual for these cars, it wasn't in great shape when it showed up but it did the job.
