      Some have removed shift weight to help. Honestly I would switch to stock 02J stuff.

      The o2j's I've driven are as sloppy as the o2a. And i wasn't fond of the dieselgeek at all

      IE Cams for The 12v VR6? I have never heard of them. Could you post a link I'd be interested in learning about them.

      Have you replaced the side and rear windows with plexiglass? Eliminated passenger wiper?

      $850 US Dollars? Jesus that's a ton of money for a chip but I am sure the programming is not the easiest as well. It's very cool of Paul to set up a mega squirt for you. TT288's cams and a really well done P&P head would be a blast to drive I'd imagine. I saw that you have the 3.94 R&P that one mod changes the car day and night, I had one and it was awesome. Much luck to you on your build and getting into the 12's. Will be following it.

      The rear doors have been done. Hatch will be done later on.

      I think all vw from late mk1 had power brakes.

      IE's 200hp is from an engine dyno.

      I'd pull the booster, run manual brakes with an adjustable proportioning valve for the rear.

    12. 03-09-2015 07:23 PM #35
      Early vr's had oem prop valve? Was thinking I'd just go 2L mc, booster and lines. Don't have any ability or know anyone to make new brake lines for the front.

      Any idea on how much weight booster + abs saves?

      The ABS valve assembly that uses the separate booster is light, around 2lbs. Not worth removing alone. The booster is heavier, but I've never weighed it. Manual brakes are kind of, well, tough. I never got that far with the Mk3. That's starting to get into the "not worth its."

      Every bit counts. If you feel its not worth it, is getting an mk3 worth getting to go 12s all motor? To make new lines you need a double flaring tool. Some of our guys will remove the emergency brake just to get an edge.

      I have no way to respond to this that doesnt sound snippy. Maybe I will think of something better later tonight.

      Sorry if I seem rude. I run a performance store(mainly muscle cars) and have people looking to do everything to their car on a budget. Any goal is worth reaching if your willing to make thr expense. Ie- a customer walks in and tells me he wants 11s in a 1/4 from his car. The sloppy way is to build a motor with gobs of power and ignore the suspension. The better way is to make sure they are going to have the proper suspension for launch, which yields best times with low-med hp numbers.

      I think what need is saying is that the hassle involved in taking out a functioning 2lbs aluminium block wouldnt be worth it. Considering he would have to make new brake lines and swap the booster iirc.

      When one could start removing easier to remove, less usefull parts, like the interior. (Been dun did already)

      Though i do agree everything counts.

      Funnily enough. The master cylinder is stuffed i think so i can't even make abs engage.

      No worries, I was avoiding exactly that myself. I agree that its all a system but some things dont need to be addressed. Like a 2lb chunk of alum that I was pissed to have it weigh so little once it was off.

      Also btdt with 12s in these cars, so hopefully my advice comes with some cred 12.833 at 2450lbs

      Does anyone know if the stock trans mount can be taken apart or the rubber cut out and replaced with metal? To get a bfi stage 2 kit here is nearly $400.

      Ive taken apart one from a 2.0. From what i remember its a huge pita. There is a lot of grease on the inside haha. Im sure it could be done, youd probly have to fab up some metal

    22. 03-12-2015 12:47 AM #45
      I have the 0.5 kit in at the moment so it isn't the liquid filled.

      Was thinking if its similar to front/rear mount could just cut a notch and slip a 'U' shaped piece around the post.

      The g60 mount is solid rubber. Once you start cutting you'd just be left with two flanges. Probably better off just making those pieces like the delrin mounts are made.

      Yeah this is true. Why do you need to modify it? Its a pretty solid mount for most applications.

      I feel that mount would flex just the right amount.

      If you wanna go crazy, and possibly lighter than stock, check out a mk4 mount swap in the white gti 20v na build. I feel that would hold up well.

      I have a solid metal front mount and the rear 0.5. Engine moves alot when rolling of the clutch with no accelerator. Can't imagine clutch chatter could be so violent like this is.

      Car is not a daily driver and is only purpose is to do a 12. Why not i say

      Price for dss axles

      Think I'll stick to breaking oem ones lol.

      That gets old but it is a lot cheaper! Real oe ones hold much better than the rebuilt ones.
