Notice that your rear shock canisters are angled to the inside of the car as opposed to the rear side as mine are with (not so) identicle HotBit's coil overs.
Also is that a non AC 318 flywheel?

what kind of power are you hoping to get? do you know how much power the sachs sport clutch can hold?

I'm not trying to make it the fastest car ever or anything, but the turbo is efficient to 20psi.
don't think my stock motor would handle that to well though :D
been running around on 8psi or lower.

apparantly Turbo'd vw's are ok below 300hp, kept reading that on dub sites


some more pics

pillar mounted gauges, recorded a max of 9.6psi

well now the wheels are off, 15" snows on.
Still moving it to a Locked Garage though, so im not tempted to drive it everyday in blizzards & stuff.
