92 GTI OEM+ Build

Postby toque » December 31st, 2014, 4:16 pm

I think we can all agree the forum needs more content so I thought I would start a thread on the build I'm about to start. A little background on the car, I bought it from Joe in April of 2012. I bought it so I could have something fun to drive while I worked on my 1991 jetta coupe TD.

First off the gti got a new power steering pump and exhaust, then I adjusted the clutch and tuned up the injection system a bit. Then for some added fun I got new wheels and some FK silverline coilovers.

With all the added grip I felt some Recaros and a bit more power out of the 8v was necessary so I threw in a 270 cam and new injectors.

That was as far as I wanted to go. I was planning on selling the car once my coupe was done. The car was such a blast to drive everyday, super reliable and could corner like nothing else that I had ever driven. Needless to say I was getting quite attached to it, Which ended up working out quite well because my jetta coupe got hit badly in the rear quarter by a tractor's plow. The gti has been sitting for about 4 months now since I bought my GLI DD. I got my own house with garage space and I've accumulated many parts for what I want to do so its time to start. Here is how she sits today:

In the coming weeks I plan to strip the car and address spots of minor rust and dents, I want to restore the car completely so everything is coming out. I will do some progress posts along the way. apart from the restoration I am also looking to do these upgrades:

-16v or G60 engine swap
-16v cluster
-G60 flares
-rear disc swap
-power windows and sunroof
-install power recaros
-source and install late 16v recaro door cards and rear bench
-16" rims

Much of it I still need to buy but I have a lot of resto work ahead of me so I think I have some time to find everything. If anyone has anything on the above list and are looking to sell let me know!

What do you think about the 270 cam? I was planning on bolting one in my MK3 8V. I ran the 260 cam before but she was pretty mild.

I really like it. Noticeable power increase across the rev-band and the idle was still really smooth. Very much on the mild side as well though.

Great, I think I am going to run one. The stock ABA is just too slow now. I tried to accept it.

Be great to see this back on the road again, especially with your progress. Lately, driving by your previouse location I had been getting sad not seeing it in your parking spot. Good to know you just moved.
