Once the last bits on the Vento are done I will be away on this one, I had intended on buying a peasant spec Bora to convert but a 4 Motion Highline just happened to land in my lap and was way to cheap to pass up.
Just made sense to use that car as a project as its already got the heated lecky seats, sunroof, climate air AWD etc.
It will be done as a full on road car, not fussed about weight as the big engine will take care of that.
As some of you know I did start on a MK2 R32 but in the end I just found it was too old to drive every day especially since being used to my current MK4 Jetta, had I gone through with it then it would have been a huge step backwards.
Finaly I'll get to use the R32 donor Golf that has been sitting around for the best part of a year, the idea is to go forged internals (rods/pistons) to lower the compression ratio to 8.5:1 so that we can turbo it!
Garret GT3582R was a consideration but after doing a bit of reading I now think this will be too small for my goal
I will post some pics of the car in the weekend, in the meantime I'll be looking at selling the current Jetta
