A few months ago I decided that I wanted to build my ultimate gti so I bit the bullet and bought a clean little mk3 that funnily enough I had owned before.
I originally purchased the car in April 2016 for $400 with a blown gearbox.
After rebuilding the box it served as a reliable little run about for myself and a few family members before I decided to sell it.
I bought the car back in August 2018 and it was in a sorry sight.
Once again it served as a run about then I decided to pull it off the road for a rebuild.
I fell in love with the characteristics of the m16a and loved it for just how much abuse it could take.
My daily drive for the past nearly 3 years has been a 2010 swift sport, I loved it so much just the way it was and how well the engine performed that I didn’t change a thing on it for 18 months. Even though it was on the slow side.
So I bought a turbo kit and things got out of hand. The car is still going strong coming on a year now with the turbo and 232,000kms later and I really wanted to put one in a gti for a reliable street/track car.
So the build begins.

Some of my progress so far. I’ve rebuilt my swift sport box and installed a Monster sport 1.5 way lsd and replaced all the bearings and seals. Rebuilt the steering rack with new rack ends and freshened it up, also rebuilt the factory master cylinder.
