Haha the barely group buy was definitely a success! We’re twins except for what’s under the bonnet haha.
Getting real keen to drive this thing to your place Tom so we can battle it out.
Some more progress pics of mine, got the gearbox in and can finally see some light at the end of the tunnel.
Also got some new seats courtesy of Simon at Autosport.

I have a dashboard again! Big thanks to gtp for supplying a un-cracked dash. Got it put in over the weekend and have changed the entire body loom over to the non gti loom.
Also got one of my seat brackets in, hopefully the passenger seat will get bolted in over the weekend.
Now just waiting on some shafts and a 1600 sedan gearbox mount to get this rolling and sent off to my mates workshop to get the exhaust made and intercooler piping.

She’s finally a roller! And safe to say I’m absolutely over the moon with how it’s looking and how far it’s come.

It’s getting there, body loom is practically all plugged up. Basically just plugging in everything I need and I’ll strip back what’s not being used. Engine loom hasn’t been started yet as I’m waiting on a mate to come down from Queensland and wire it all up for me. He’s also wiring up the race dash and ecu.
Also had a catch can made up by southy, he’s also welded some fittings onto my rocker cover and is making me some aluminium heel plates. So October is going to be a very busy month haha.
I had a deadline for this set for the 20th of October as I was going to drive it from Adelaide to Sydney for the World time attack challenge but I’ve had some lengthy unexpected delays so it’s just not going to happen. Oh well, next year!

Nice work on your build so far mate as it looks like a great sleeper and make sure you stiffen the chassis with that extra horsepower.

Will be watching this build with a keen eye. 8)

Plus it's good to see you sticking with Suzuki power under the hood.

Cheers mate! Will be getting a half cage and a few braces to take care of the chassis.
Haha yeah I’m definitely a purist mate, live and breath Suzuki’s so you won’t find anything else under my bonnet.

Life’s been busy but finally some updates.

Firstly, managed to find some bigger whiteline swaybars and got them fitted. No sign of fouling the body of the car like I’ve had previously running the bigger sway bar on the front. Dmw new swift uprights have really improved a heap on the front end.
Also got some Omp front and rear strut braces which are now fitted too.

Waiting on a few goodies from Southy in the shape of a custom catch can setup, some heel plates and a custom gearbox mount.

Got my front camber tops fitted and have got around -2 degrees of camber which has managed to get my wheels inside the guards with plenty of clearance.

Had a carbon fibre monster sport rear wing sitting around and decided to have a go at fitting it onto the gti, just mounted it off of the factory spoiler and I think it looks pretty good.

And a quick picture of my wheel collection that the gti can start wearing once I have some rubber fitted.

Still waiting on a bunch of parts to arrive and will have further updates once they do.

Coming together nicely.

Was the electric steering a must with the m-series conversion?

Wasn’t a must, just a preference to make it a little friendlier and more comfortable for daily driving. It is fully adjustable though so I can turn it on and off.

Update time.
Got some parts delivered by strider, Carbon lip, carbon midwing, Suzuki sport steering wheel and some adjustable toe bars. Got all them fitted up over the last week.
Sequential shifter arrived so I’ve been playing with that over the weekend trying to set it up and get cable adjustments right. Been a pita but finally got it sorted.
Shifter is branded Suzuki works karume, made by Ikeya Formula. It’s made for the 2005-2010 swift sport but seeing as that’s my running gear it suited me perfectly.
Been an expensive month and off to world time attack challenge this week so wont get much time on it over the next few weeks.
Also sourced some manually adjusted mirrors from a barina.

Will need a method to secure braided lines to replace E clips.

Thinking about just welding some E-clips onto the toe bars. The brake lines I have are way too long so I’ll be shortening them anyway. Haven’t got that far yet.

Suzitech use 2 straps with a little bolt to join them together. Seems to work ok, nothing ripped off yet after several years.

Thanks answer.

Ahh nice! Thanks for the info, That shouldn’t be too hard to put together at all. I may even have those clamps in the shed.

Which drive shafts did you use out of the m16a box?
Also, you used sport hubs, can you use GTi ones?

You mentioned that the sport intake manifold wouldn't fit, but the ignis sport one clears. Do you know if any other manifold clear or are the choices itbs & ignis sport?

Custom & DMW made engine mounts solve the mounting.

Sport starter, alternator & selector cables
Stand alone ecu

Just building a mental picture of what's required.

Okay so driveshafts, drivers side is a gti shaft with the inner cv joint changed over to a swift sport one.
Passenger side shaft I’ve been told the 1.6 sedan shaft will work so that’s what I’ll be doing there.

Did manage to fit the swift sport manifold, once the mounts were in and the engine leaned forward it fit quite easily.

Mounts can be purchased by Southy one here. He’s made a complete mount kit which he will have for sale very soon.

The rest is sport starter, alternator, sport shifter cables with the sequential shifter.

Running a stand alone Link Monsoon g4+ ecu.

And just a few pics for updates.
