Comments:-

Picked this up as an unfinished project, enjoy the progress.

Pics that sold it to me:-







Day one:
despite the potential onset of rain, i ploughed on with the car! now got the G40 ecu, G40 engine loom and Mk3 Engine loom re-wrapped and fitted, with oem holes through the bulkhead. Throttle cable fitted, exhausts all fitted (but badly needs a new tailpipe - dtm upswept ftl!) Intercooler is mounted and radiator trial fitted. Sound deadening stripped from the interior and mk3 in-tank fuel pump fitted

So that leaves me with a few jobs left when I get back after the weekend. Fit fuel pump, lines and loom, block off BRV, fit dump-valve, plumb turbo oil lines, fit intercooler pipes, fit rad and plumb in, bleed brakes, mount boost guage, brap and mot!

oh and holesaw vents for intercooler in front-panel.

no piccies unfortunatly bar this one, from when it arrived in the morning, as me phone b82res is dead!

I love it ! I think it looks great I think mk 2's have the edge when it come to looks over a mk3 abd this one is especialy nice. What turbo and what manifold are you using looks like a philj jobie any good ?? Also where'd you get your down pipe from ??

Yeah the sharp edges give it that old skool feel, i adore mk1 and mk2 shapes, along with mk1 golfs!

not sure on the turbo and manifold mate, i'll check for markings and get back to you on that, i didnt purchase them so its wherever Kev got them from.

Will grab more details off the turbo too, just know its a Garrett atm!

ye, its a t25 and im 99% sure that its off a saab. if the downpipe fitting has 3 bolts it definately is a saab unit, going by the number on the compressor housing  it should suit the engine well, virtually the same turbo to what ill be running

theres plenty of room, but it'll have too many bends to meet the intercooler as it has side mounted take-offs!

will have a play with a load of ally off cuts we've got
