Hope to make it in the 10s

I will add more pics as i go














Today Jeff was bored so he decided to polish my turbozzz

I also doweled the crank gear with a stainless steel dowel since the factory key likes to snap off and cause the valves to kiss the pistons



Oh and this morning i walked out to see this hit and run
at least it was the mk4 hehe

I also got myself a set of 16x9 and 16x8.5 BBS RS.. 2.5" & 2" lips... hrmm what colour should i paint the centers?
I'm personally leaning towards gold
EDIT: Looks like i will be colour matching the centers with gold bolts and maybe polishing the faces of the spokes hehe

Update as of 4/26/10
I ceramic coated the hotside and manifold today.. turned out pretty decent.


I also made my stainless steel oil return line, since its so close to the runners i didn't want to take a chance with using anything but hardline.


I threw the engine in and installed the volvo oil cooler


Polished up the 44mm Tial teehee

My little bro and sis helped out by polishing my RS lips and AWIC



So today i pulled my back and i couldn't really do much work on the car.. i decided i would polish the lips a little more and put the wheels together.. they turned out flawless.. Rick did a great job painting them!



Not really sure what center caps i want to run yet.. i'm thinking black with gold BBS.

I really gotta polish the lips on mk4

I remember when I first saw the pic of you lighting it up on the road course and I thought "Damn...This car is neat."
Now i would like to say this is my favorite Jetta. I'm not a fan of 1.8T swaps but this is done so so so so so so right. The progress is amazing.
