Guess I'll start one of these for my new project..

I've been in the VW scene for a while and wanted one of these since I was 16. Finally got a good deal on one that needed some work.

Plans are probably just 300whp 16v OR 20v 2.0t.. It has a haldex swap already as well.. I'm pretty excited to have a project that won't be as extreme as my R32.
I'll have it in my garage in about 2 weeks so right now IRS just a little waiting game.

Find yourself a wrecked tt225 and swap everything over. Excited to see what you do with it.

I was thinking that as well. Can't decide if I want 20v or 16v... The tt225 would make it super easy.

Car showed up today. Its gonna be a long project but I'm very confident. I have a few things to finish up for my R32 this and next week and then the rallye will be tended too. Windshield will be installed this week, and then I can empty the thing out and see what I need and don't need.. Have a few doubles on parts including a headlights.

My R is getting the bay sprayed and I'm installing the bar-tek reenforcement in my dog box.. Then that car is all wrapped up and ready for spring.

I finally got some time to work on this after getting back from wookies and the woods.. Definitely missing some stuff. But there is also doubles and triples of other things...

Rallye grills or headlights anyone???

I'll be making a list and ordering some stuff this week. I want the interior to be 100% before I move on to the engine area. But I'm probably going to need a full brake set up. Not sure if it has abs which could be a headache.
