      I actually ordered that today. Hopefully it helps solve my issue.

      Another inspirational thread. I need to do this to my mk2. It already has a 12v but like youve said im not interested in turboing it. Im pretty convinced it would end up costing somewhere near the same to make 12v go over 200whp as it would to swap in a 3.6. I could be totally wrong though.

      A 190-200whp 12v can be done for way less than this swap. Now a 220+ whp one, probably close in cost.

      Even if you were to find a full donor car for cheap. Sorry I'm just trying to get a gauge for what this ends up costing.

      Just a block and a head is around $3k for a low mileage one. Lots have damage to the intake manifold and hpfp assemblies if in a front ender. You will also need all the wiring, mk5 r32 downpipes, pedal, immo and abs deletes in the ecu... probably more I am forgetting.

      Finally got some more parts to put in. Between last update and now.

      While on the dyno I had issues of my clutch line popping off and clutch pedal falling to the floor on Full throttle that has been ever since I had this car. So i dropped tranny after i was getting noise coming from the clutch after the clutch line came off. I discovered that a few transmission bolts that hold the tranny to the block were missing and the pp was rubbing the transmission casing. So I had to get a new pp, fix the flywheel dowl pins, I opened the tranny to put back the original ring and pinions. And bought a brand new clutch master cylinder.

      newc clutch master cylinder
      CM 02M Slave cylinder
      CM FX500 clutch kit
      16 lb Flywheel
      New rear skinnies.



      So hopefully finally ill have no more issues with my clutch after all this. Stay tuned Im really trying to make it to waterfest in a few weeks! Enjoy everyone.

      update:

      clutch master slave cylinder was .200inch too big, they sent me an updated version that was smaller. I will be putting that in this month. Hoping I can finally solve my clutch issues finally.

      Updates?

    14. 09-20-2017 10:11 PM #138
      Hey guys sorry that I havn't been updating this. During the spring clutch masters slave wasn't working with me so I went to OEM slave.

      Back in May, my axle popped out of its cv. In July I sent it to drive shaft shop. I was able to measure some things for them and they told me 1 side was too short. So they made the shaft longer for me 1/2" longer. Right now the car is back together. It feels good its supper loud. Brake scatter shield is rubbing and I need a bolt for my rear motor mount that I lost. Ill have both of those things completed by sunday. Maybe Ill make a video. the car is supper dirty inside well see. So far from driving it I havn't gotten that clutch pedal drop at all yet so Im happy about that. only issue is I have a leaky oil pan which I have a replacement already.

      I've been watching this thread intently, you'll get it sorted soon enough

      In the meantime, here's a vid from those crazy frenchmen who've been running their all-motor 3.6 rado.
      No idea what their setup is though

      Def. sikk! No updates from me really. Seems that my clutch issue is 100% fixed. My DBW pedal keeps going dead at random usually during stop and go driving. I have a few ideas that I will try during the winter.

      car is back home. my accelerator pedal keeps going out, only at idle randomly. Car drives fine, feels strong. I really want to dyno asap. I probably wont do anything until May or June like hit the track.

      2015 setup




      2018 Swoops Built Short runner




      dyno on the new setup.


      pedal went out once on the dyno at the end. but it was fine while driving that day. I forgot to delete my 12 codes I had prior to the dyno not sure if that mattered or not. I will be running through the car looking for any issues as I dont have anything planned for right now. I would like standalone next to run it on corn or maybe loose some more weight by waterfest
