This is the original post that I put on VWV and the old KCH2O site. Believe it or not, there has been some progress. So I will post that on following posts.

What I am doing:
Total "from scratch" build of a 1.8 to swap into a MK1 GLI that already had a running 16V swap on CISe. The int. shaft bearing went out. Car came with another block, head, new gaskets, mounts, arp studs, timing belt.

So, extra motor had a little bit of a lip on the cyl walls so I had it bored .20 over, over sized pistons/rings, crank was checked for balancing. Head rebuild, decked, guides/seals. New Autotech springs, cams, lifters. I had the bottom end assembled and I guess my next step is installing the new oil pump, oil pan and then the head, cams and timing bits. From there, its a little up in the air.

My immediate goal is to get the bay cleaned up, resprayed and the motor in, installed with the suspension, wheels/tires and done. Run, drive, drive, drive and drive.

Once I get tired of that, I will probably shave a few things and spray it with something fun. But right now, I dig the rat look it has going right now so who cares. I also have a 16V Rear beam with brakes, cables, etc. Will Disassemble, paint, rebuild and install next winter maybe.

Then its time to start on my MK3......... And my MK4's....... And my sons Caddy project.... :rolleyes:

Time to do work. DERP!

7 years in the making now. I will send some updated pics soon. I've owned this project so long I've already purchased wheels and sold them and have yet to tag it. Its run but has never driven. CIS, fuel Dist block issue I wager. Needs to go to the Hunter shop.

So, who has a flat bed connection that can transport a car 3 hours away?

Funny enough, it didn't come with the corrado wheels. I think the ratty snowflakes I have are maybe what came with it. I have some Ronal Teddy bears, 16" ATS Type 10s right now. Used to have $2500 BBS RS's for it but sold those. Not sure what my dream wheels are for this thing.
