Got the gearbox assembled today.



All the gears, Peloquin and modified shift forks.



And the assembled 6 speed box. The shift arm is a short throw VW part from a Golf R. Also replaced the bearing in the shift tower and the shoulder bolt for the shift gate as it was worn.

Did you get the built-in fog lights to work?
Did you have to add harness? Switch?

I helped a friend install similar headlights in his 2001 US-spec Cabrio, sourced a switch with fog light function, and everything works as it should minus the fog lights. His Cabrio does not have the harness.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

The lights will plug into the existing harness but to get the fog lights to work you will need some wiring and a switch with the fog light position. I prefer the Euro switch so you can eliminate the DRLs and have parking lights. The easiest way to wire it up is with a fog light wiring kit, but you can round up everything and do it without if you are cheap and/or adventurous. If the new lights have city lights you may need to rewire the connector, I don't remember. Finally if you are using old lights there is a good chance the internal wire insulation is breaking off. Fixmyvw has replacement wiring harnesses for the internal harnesses.

Did quite a bit this weekend. Took the auto shifter out and installed the manual shifter. I took it apart, cleaned & re-greased it and installed Dieselgeek bushings in the shift cable ends before installation.


A few things removed here, but lots more to remove!


Installed a VNT17 Turbo...


and a PD150 inlet manifold.


Still a lot of work ahead. Suspension, more engine stuff and the interior.

Making some progress. A few things done on the engine, got the injectors out ready to send in for new nozzles. Worked on the heater/ac box, its just about ready.


The before picture


The after, ready to go back together. New Behr AC evaporator. I need a long cable tie for the drip shield and it will be done.


Inside the car. Looks a mess! AC box & dash out, shifter in, auto brake pedal replaced with a manual brake pedal.

Maybe I missed something, but that looks like an MK3.5 dash from a Cabrio??

I really like the dimple dash they had, but haven't seen/heard where that can be fitted into an MK4??

Made some good progress this weekend.


Climatronic evaporator installed


Clutch pedal and manual brake pedal. New pedal pads are on order.

New rear main seal.


Sachs PD150 clutch


O2M gearbox installed. Injectors are out and headed to DBW for an upgrade. I swapped out the automatic water neck for a proper manual setup. I never liked the plastic one anyway!


I'm changing to Audi TT front suspension. The Audi front subframe has stiffer subframe bushings and has a couple of extra braces. I decided not to use them as fitting them to the Golf floor was going to be a bit of a project. I do think it was worth changing it for the TT subframe bushings.


I also am installing a quick ratio R32 steering rack. Here it is ready to go in the car. The rubber steering rack mount was replaced with a Powerflex bushing.


And the subframe in with the Audi TT lower control arms. They got new (stock) Audi TT rear bushings.
That's it for this week. Hope to get the suspension buttoned up next week.

Got a bit more done this weekend.


The suspension is in, I'm waiting on some new fasteners to finish it up. Went with Bilstein TC struts and shocks, Shine Real Street springs. I used Cupra R (1ML412331) strut mounts. Hopefully it won't be too stiff!


Installed the Darkside uprated side mount intercooler.


And a trial fit of the intercooler hoses.

Got a bit more work done. Lots of little time consuming stuff.


Installed an R32 air duct and related parts. Should provide plenty of air!


Finished up the front suspension. Yes there should be brake rotors here but somehow I ended up with 4 rears and no front rotors! Got a pair headed this way. I went with 1.8T 288mm rotors & calipers. The TT suspension came with 312mm brakes but they seemed a bit overkill - not to mention very heavy. These are marginally larger rotors but much larger pad surface. I think they should be fine.


Got most of the hoses in. Test fitting the PD150 TIP & MAF. Injectors are due in Tuesday. Getting closer!

Ordered front rotors (this time), so got the front brakes done.


Installed APR head studs.


Got the injectors from DBW. Went with DLC 764 nozzles. Also installed a new valve cover as the old one was seeping a bit of oil. A few more things and hopefully start it up next week.
