My G40...... finally
« on: January 27, 2010, 10:36:53 am »
Now i have got a little money together i have started buying parts and bits.

So im gonna start putting pics up of what i am doing and what has been done. Hopefully this will be finished by the summer, fingers crossed.

So here we are from the start of when i bought her as some of you will remember the car ( with fantastic headlights  :-[)





After a good clean



Then i got the original hella headlights and got some 14" bbs RA's



Fitted a standard grille as i was having trouble getting hole of the original black badge one



This is the latest pic with clear indicators and a G40 front grille badge



Will get more pics up soon but my car is away having some work done to it and will be back friday.

Will keep this updated.

Right after getting it back from garage i did a little work on it, put the original interior back in and put an induction kit on.

I have just got new rear wheel bearings replaced, rear wheel cyclinders, brake shoes and hubs, new fuel tank, stainless steel brake hoses, standard brembo disc's, red stuff pads, AP dot 5 brake fluid and im also doing my front wheel bearings this week.

Also put on the grille with black VW badge.

Here is the engine in standard conditon, with exception on GT inlet and de-wedge TB





Here is the interior





Steering wheel that came with the car



Put an audi grille on but not sure



induction kit



New grille



Engine bay currently (heat shield was put on after (pic above))



After cleaning it and using mer polish and mer bumper & external vinyl cleaning gel it come up well and looked nice




More to follow soon

Another little update.

After spending lots of money a now have got the following and i think im at a stage where it can all go on:

Adjustable vernier pulley
PSD Toothed kit
PSD Full blend charger
SNS chip stage 5
G60 green injectors
Custom made manifold
Custom made 2.25 system

Not long till i will have it all on hopefully.

Looking to get it rolling roaded to see power now then do one after to see power increase, plus getting the car looked at for timing and a/r mix.

Think i will put standard air box back on as well for the 1st rr. Manifold made a 23bhp increase on last rr on a friends car.

Thinking about a cam to get next but not 100% sure.
Also on the list for the engine is forged pistons and aquamist.

Will get pics of stuff brought and as it goes on the car.

Thankyou very much. The manifold and system that i have now, soon to go on, gave a 23bhp increase.

It was rolling roaded before the manifold then after to see the gain.
