Thanks, that means a lot. It has been a serious downer over the years to see it sit.

Cage and Seats are dope.

Whats done motor wise?
As for the motor there isn't a lot done to it. GIAC X Chip, FMIC, CAI, Custom Turbo back exhaust no cat or mid muffler, all of the A/C deleted, TT shifter weight, B&M short shifter.

I'm just going to drive it and get used to it all over again since it's been a long while. Track it as much as I can, then over the winter finish the front cage and get into the motor (Turbo, Tranny, redo the FMIC)

I spent majority of the time with brakes, suspension, weight reduction, and all the custom seats brackets, cage, and lexan on the rear windows...

You know how it goes never done :laugh: But my wife loves it so at least she doesn't mind me spending the money on it :beer:

I know some one asked about the rubber, they are Falken 235/40/17 10mm spacers F/R...

Thanks for all the comments... I'll get some better shots and post them up.

I forgot to ask...how the hell did you get your stoptechs to look so awesome!?!? I have the same kit, black calipers, and for the life of me can't get them to look as great as yours do! :mad:

Well, I was going to start a new thread but decided to revive this one! This is a little backwards, but I have never really done a build thread. I'm still searching for some older more stock pics, but I'm sure everyone knows what a stock MKIV Golf looks like, lol...
