It's been a while but I'm still working on the Golf.
I installed new Cupra R rear bushings (6LL 501 541) it was easier to remove the rear axle. Not an easy or fun job! It's back in place with new brake pads & rotors to match the front. Also got Shine Racing Real Street Springs and Bilstein TC shocks.
Installed a PD Lift Pump
and a 2.5” stainless steel downpipe & tailpipe
Still sorting out the PD150 vent pipe, I think I have a solution. It actually runs now, in fact I drove it around the block last week.
One thing I did was to have a flexible line installed on the power steering hose. They cut the steel line and welded on AN fittings. Then made a hose with AN hose ends to connect the metal pipes. Makes running the PS hose around the 6 speed a little easier. The clamp is on a 1.5” tall standoff bolted to the transmission mount. I like it a lot better than trying to bend a 5 speed hose to fit.
And here it is off the jack stands! The wheels are powder coated Force with 205/55 16 Yokohama S Drive tires. Haven't installed the wheel centers yet or even cleaned them up from mounting them. Started on the interior, the headliner is out at the upholstery shop.
