Hey everyone, while cruising my 2.7 had a freakish end last November as a wrist pin cracked and one of the RPM Rods let go of a piston and blew a hole out on both sides of the block. And working on Camp Pendleton, and my home being in Antelope Valley and never being home meant the car was going to sit on ice for some time due to work constraints due to distance. Anyways Every now and then I traveled home for a couple days and was able to slowly turn wrenches and accumulate the necessary parts. Anyways I'm just finishing my transition out of the Corps and being home for good starting September [cool]

I've mainly been posting on Facebook & Instagram, so I'll just post all the content I have so far and update in the coming weeks as I begin to pick up speed on my progression. I've sorted the bottom end, and currently looking at the Cylinder head and the options for Valves & cams along with the other long list of things I'll need to get sorted. [:D]

Anyways, here you guys go.

And heres the most recent content, Rods and other goodies came in. Along with my new 1.01AR housing for my Turbo. Downsized from 1.28AR to 1.01 for better spool.

Is this car not registered in Cali, cause I'm wondering how you are going to get something like this past the smog police... Looks like a viable alternative to the 2.7t. Def will have room to actually see around the motor..

It is not, however. Utilizing the OEM harness, and basically have the motor operating electronically flawless as if a 2.7t is installed in its place should yield positive results with smog. The VR6 will be running in the car as if it came like that from the manufacturer. Dash, all functions preserved.

Boxed up the Snail, and exhaust bits to send over to Beast Car Productions for some prep & Fabrication [:D]

Waiting on the short block to be finished so I can pick it up from the machinist so I can assemble the bottom end, hopefully they call me in the next day or so.

No major updates yet as I'm waiting for the bottom end to be finished at the Machinist. But picked these up and don't know why I never did earlier, so much easier to move the car around.

Is that for a VR5/Passat or a VR6/Phaeton? The coolant pipe that is.

Coolant pipe is from a Cayenne/Touareg.


And just picked up the bottom end from the Machinist. Bored, decked, and hot tanked. Assembling this weekend. :)
