On the weekend I purchased another GTi for $500. I was surprised to find the gearbox is whisper quiet and tight and it has a strong motor. I drove it home and got stuck into it straight away prepping the body for paint. pulled the engine out to clean up and respray the engine bay. I'm planning on rebuilding the motor with cultus piston's, cultus intake, cultus extractors and cultus injectors and bd14 Cams. I will also be putting power steering in it. This will be my new daily driver.

Sounds good! I haven't perfected the art of a "quick build" LOL.

Good luck with it! I have a Mk1 GrpA intake if you're interested :wink:

Not really, all the paint and panel work is costing me the price of the paint and mates rates labour as my mate is a spray painter. The only cost's in building the engine is parts and machining cost's and being a qualified mechanic I'll be doing all the assembling of the engine. The most expensive part will be wheels, tyres, koni shocks and the power steering setup. I'm budgeting around $4000 ao in total the car will owe me $4500 and that's not too bad at all. Of course budgets can blow out and things can go wrong but that's expected being a project car.

Bit pedantic cappa!
A daily is a car that you use daily usually in reference to one used in saving wear and tear or cost to another, usually toy car owned and not used daily, if it costs nothing so be it but it could cost a bomb.
My daily is an expensive modified swift, it is used over the Tow ute or race car but certainly isnt a cheap, spend no money car!

No flaring of the wheel arches on this one OMG

Do you know what a built project car is? A car that actually has dyno sheets to prove the power claims made by the owner.

I like the gun metal, for a GTi it's something a bit different and personally I like the colour :wink:

Don't worry, this one is too straight to be rolling guards. Found a nice set of 14x6 +25 that shouldn't give me problem's.

Wouldn't you rather put $4500 into your good gti and make that thing a weapon and keep this one stock standard for when s**t breaks on the modified one?
Not having a go or anything
Just curious :D

Sorry about the next post to squirt
Some people just shouldve been aborted when Theyre parents became pregnant.. 8-[

Hmmm...
Someone's been hiding under a rock!!!
viewtopic.php?f=28&t=52643

Oh and by the way, you're so wrong
A dyno sheet means f**k all and does not actually need to be provided for a built project car...
But mines on that link up above in the red^^^^ so go have a good toss over it and pretend its yours, Because you will never achieve that
Is that all squirty boy...
U and posgti both need to ger a life and get over this little jealousy thing you have over my car
Grow up man..
So much for keeping your word on stopping the s**t talk..

Oh, are you gonna call me and threaten to stab me again?

I distinctly remember advising you to quit your bitching too, so if you feel the need we can have another heart to heart phone call.

And I'm pretty sure I recall you claiming much much more power than that sheet shows :lol:
