Finished installing my new carpet, also got the Passat front seats retrofitted. They are super comfy compared to stock seats. All in all I think it's turning out pretty nice.

Finished my battery relocation and power distributor mounting last night. Also rebuilt my inner cv's and mounted them in the car. Vehicle is really starting to come together. Turbo arrives this week. Darkside part arrive end of next week or early following week.

Not a perfect tuck job but way more organized. Also leaves room for future developments.

The bulk of my engine goodies showed up yesterday from Darkside. Also received my turbo!


I got the timing belt all sealed up, engine mount bracket bolted up. New Injectors installed and the transmission bolted on. Plan now is to bolt it into the chassis to begin mock up of lines and hoses. Then make adjustments and pull it back out so I can tidy up the chassis.

I got the engine mounted up last night! Starting to compile my list of things to do on the wall. First I'm going to work on mocking up all my piping and getting it cut to fit. Also getting my fuel lines routed.

Got a little bored today so I designed up my oil fitting for the GTB turbo. The one I bought came with a plate but I was not a fan of the design and want to use AN fittings to prevent any leaks.

Looks like things are coming together nicely. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product.

Just a fyi, nothing is showing up in post 67.

Should be fixed now. Thanks for the headsup!

What all was done to the cylinder head? The first post mentioned valves, porting and a cam, but this was before any consideration of a PD.

I originally ported the ALH head and was going to do larger valves and upgraded cam. So If anyone is looking for a ported ALH head I got one.

But all I've done is replace the cam with another stock cam. I'm not pushing for high enough numbers right now to justify a port job or a upgraded cam. At the end of the day it's still just a commuter car. That happens to have race injectors and a big turbo

In my opinion a stage II cam would have been worth it to add to the build. It would have helped with spooling the turbo and kept egts in check.

Here are a few options should you change your mind.

http://www.darksidedevelopments.co.u...d-engines.html

Either way the car will definitely scoot!

Yeah but it's an easy easy option to add at a later date. It just didn't seem worth the money to me at the time. It would also be nice if the cam makers would post duration, angles and lift so I could actually see where I would get the benefit in the powerband. I don't want a high revving race engine with a lopey idle. I know people are running these cams and that is not the effect. Would just like to see the actual numbers before making a purchase.

Nice job
The PD130 i'm rebuilding is also for a daily driving purpose, and I also don't really know yet if I'll use a stock cam or the upgraded rosten one.
