my mk2 VR6 track car build

Postby breeza18 » Thu Dec 02, 2010 9:05 pm

hi all thought it was about time to post some pictures of my mk2 up, used this site loads for info and help so thought id put a little something back into the forum. gotta say im sooo glad i went vr power from 16v, its a totally different animal and its only gonna get better :-D future plans are a V5 02j gearbox with 3.9 final drive, DRC 268 cams (just purchased) some headwork, 6 branch and a remap along with a lot of weight loss! polly carb windows, fibreglass bonet and boot and a mad day with the angle grinder! :shock: heres some pictures from about 6 months ago......

the car already has polly bushes throughout, decat and stainless system, FK konigsport coilovers, Eibach F/R antiroll bars, saftey devices 4 point cage and a stripped interior, audi S2 twin pot calipers and 280mm discs,

hope you like! any ideas for track mods? cheers Ash

Car looks nice mate.....the only thing I'd say is that I've heard a 3.9 final drive isn't any good in cars that don't run 17" wheels or more for normal everyday driving, if its a track toy then it should be good as long as there's no long straights.

its a weekend and track day toy so not to fussed about the limited top speed (gonna be a long slow trip to the ring lol) would much rather it be punch out of the bends and the 02j has a lot nicer shifter and feel :up:

Nice motor mate, the green headlamps are tidy. Is that a can of wd40 I can see tucked away in the bottom left of the engine bay?
