Quick Update
-Exhaust is installed
-Dash is in, Interior is together
-Figured out the fuel problem, the fuel pump was starving due to a clogged screen in the tank.
-Car was still smoking so i took the downpipe off and ran it to find that the turbo is leaking oil out of the intake and exhaust seals :(
-Took the turbo apart and decided it was not worth a rebuild. Found an almost new k26/T04E hybrid and made it fit on the manifold with some metal removal. Should be bolted on the engine next week.
Some pics....

It will be covered in heat wrap so no need! Thanks for the offer though!

Long overdue update!
The wrap is 90% complete, just the stripes left on the sides then windows going in.
New turbo is in and now its time for break in and tuning.

you are making me consider switching my front end over on my jetta coupe to a round headlight setup...damn that looks good. Though I will probably just keep mind with the stock headlight setup...dont want to copy that sexy look you got going there.
