Finally going to get this lanos on its feet

Postby sheepdizildawg » Wed Aug 17, 2011 11:42 pm

Well I havnt been arround these forums for a good 2 years now. After breaking down on me a second time, I said I'm done and got a new to me car. 2002 volkswagen gti. I have been doing a lot of car work the last two years, have won a few shows and what not, but always see the lanos on the side of the house. Well yesterday I decided to get this thing running again. I ordered a new seal kit and head bolts and got started. Yesterday I pulled the head and took it to a machine shop and got the head decked and cleaned up. I am waiting for the kit to get here, hope tomorrow or friday. I am debaiting on selling it once I get it going, or keeping it and building into a sleeper. Here are a few pics of my projects the last 2 years and the lanos.

This is right after I got my GTI and lowered it.
Image
Got it lowered some more and started on some body work, along with some Corvette wheels
Image
This was a few months ago after making my dual exit exhaust
Image
And as it sits now, almost done with body work.

After I got my income tax back in Feburary, I picked up a 1969 VW bus for $600 with the engine sitting in its back seat, put it all together, drove it for a few months and sold it for $2300 after having it listed for 2 hours.
Image

After selling that I picked this 1986 vw gti up for $600 from a friend. Ran and drove fine, was a bit dirty, so spent 2 hours clay baring and waxing and this is how it sat
Image

After driving it for a few weeks, the 1.8l 8v wasnt cutting it, so I picked up a 2.0l 8v engine from a 94 gti and started on the swap.

After:

I am now daily driving this as a big turbo engine isnt the best thing to daily.

I pulled the daewoo off the side of the house yesterday and into the driveway and it sat like this
Image

Pulled the head and cleaned up the bay
Image

And I just picked up the head a few hours ago from the machine shop.
Image

I plan on just getting this heap running reliably and then I will decide if I want to fab up an exhaust manifold to boost it or now.

I have 1" engine mount spacers on the gti so I dont have any problems with oil pans.

The stock turbo is about half the size of the turbo on the left, which is what I upgraded to at first, now im running the one on the right.

I forgot the head had two bolts that broke off inside of it, so im headed to the machine shop tomorrow to see if they can get them out. If not that was $30 out the window to get the head reworked. UPS says its gonna take a week to get my head bolts from california to washington. Says they will be here monday, thats why I dont like using UPS, they suck.
