I had an epiphany today, it was that i haven't really driven my rocco since 94, its been registered on and off, but collectively over the last 12 years hasn't racked up 500 miles.
A little history, originally a 84 Wolfsburg(no roof), in 94 i installed Callaway Stage II, a clogged injector burned up cylinder 2 and the car sat until i graduated in 99. Rebuilt a g60 engine after graduation and swapped the necessary corrado guts in, played around w/ a few different charger options before i settled on the twinscrew, the digi engine management never really did a good job, and no-one present or past has ever made a good chip for the pg motor, ive had most in three different g60s, and they just aren't consistanly good runners
Currently, the car again sits because i am unwilling to commit big $$/time to a standalone setup, so ive made the decision to move on to another engine swap...some current pics...whats a build-up thread w/out pics right??




the plan is to pull the drivetrain, give you guys some pics and a narrative...cause some idiot wasting $ is always good entertainment...and document the process, the clincher is that i'm going to hold off on what is ending up in the engine bay until i have a pic of the motor testfit...Stay tuned
...and feel free to post what ever is on your mind
...cheers

Re: Project Snowflake (roccodingo)

Update...
pulled engine wireing away from motor, clutch/speedo & throttle cables, fuel lines, shifter linkage & lower tie bar as well as all the Intercooler plumbing...still need to pull exhaust, oil cooler circuit, axles and of course motor mounts and drivetrain is out http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
, you know you've made bad decisions in life when you've pulled a car apart so many times, that you can pull a full custom setup out in less than 4 hrs
...took some side shots of the custom Lysholm setup and IC/G60 radiator/oil cooler placement, figured pics pull in vews better than my yap

Custom Lysholm silencer setup w/vac operated bypass and modded g60 Throttle body on left attached to charger intake, on the right modded flange w/pressed-in facotory barb for ECU Map sensor

You can see the Audi IC w/ the oil cooler on top sitting in front of the G60 Radiator, yeah it was a tight fit

Re: Project Snowflake (Lysholm)

Update...
finished pulling the rest of the motor/tranny and got my gameplan together as to what order things will need to happen in... so that i don't back myself into a corner, from a fabrication standpoint. A little concerned about setting static caster angle on the new fron suspension setup that will be going in...everything else looks as though it will fall into place...pics for veiws

Empty bay awaiting...pain


pulled engine, amazing how crusty everything gets from sitting


shot of G60 Radiator(installed) vs. a SLC radiator on top, G60 is bigger, but SLC has many more finer fins

Re: Project Snowflake (pt_08)

update
rear suspension fabrication is pretty much sorted out, as seen here

will be switching to a fuel cell located in the spare tire well in order to make room for the custom exhaust and give the A2 A-frame some more breathing room

another finished pic

When did you convert the car to 5-lug?

its actually an SLC A-frame modified pads to bolt up to an A1 body, i still need to remove the stock tank and weld some gusset supports to the unibody frame on the Scirocco to finish the body mounting, and i have some modifications to make to the A-frame which will allow a bigger wheel offset possibility and correct the rear strut allignment
