    Well, I've had a few MK2's and finally found one to keep.

    1991 Gti started Life as a lowly 8v.

    That just wasn't going to cut it in the fun department. So I found a 1995 Passat TDI that was totaled. I swapped that drive train into the car.

    This configuration lasted for about 1 summer till I lost in a race to Pelinos Insight ( I knew the tdi I was slow but that was enough)

    I started to build a 2L 1.8T with a Gt2871 to put in the car. Mk4 Motor Mounts welded in to the frame rails, custom driveshafts.

    Then the Silver TT blew some rod bearings into a blown motor soup, out comes the 1.8t to go into that car and on comes a 24v Vr6 because front flips for the win.

    Just have to machine a few fuel pump parts, and this thing should breath life.

    Very interested in seeing this. I really want a mk2 or corrado with a 24v in it.

    2.8 or 3.2 24v?
    NoGame has a 3.2 waiting to go into his mk2 as soon we find a donor car for the rest of the parts we need.

    3.2 would have been nice, but for $800 I got the VR, 02m, shiftbox, axles, ecu, sensors, wiring, coolant hoses, intake hoses, was to good a deal to pass up.

    that's a great deal.

    so this insight... k series turbo? had to have been. those things are light. I remember a few years back some big name guy in the Honda world almost died when his insight rolled during a top speed run
