Remember me? 82 cabby

Postby Jamal » Jul 4th, 2016, 4:27 pm

So, I've been on mk1 hiatus for the past two years up here in Calgary, partially because I tried a mkv Gli for a bit then I caught the e30 bug big time. After all that, still can't beat a mk1 so I'm back to my roots.

My summer daily driver is this nice little ripper.

-Bored and stroked 2.1 high compression aba
-Shaved big valve jh head with 272 solid lifter cam, titanium retainers and HD valve springs
-Twin weber 45's on a port matched intake
-4-1 header straight to a borla
-Adjustable timing gear and g60 valve cover (leaky gasket)
-Msd 6al ignition with 8980 timing computer
-Poly mounts everywhere
-Short throw shifter, weighted shift rod, performance clutch and lightened flywheel
-Wilwood front brake kit with 11" rotors and a rear disc conversion
-KW variant coil overs
-Ultra racing 15x7.5s
Etc

Yadda Yadda Yadda you get the idea. No one really cares about all the interior crap anyways.

Now for some pics

I don't really have many plans for it as its a blast just the way it is. However I'll probably drop it a little more to get the stance better. It's nice having concept1 in town so I can just rip to the city and pick up parts hassle free.

Later By's

Hey Jamal :wave: Nice ride buddy. Glad to see you are still kicking :thumbup: Most of the VOGN activity happens now over on Facetube but I think you gave all that up a while ago. Keep posting here but it gets a little quiet in here from time to time.

Looks good Jamal, I am still picking away at the Rabbit, but just picked up McCarthy's old Rocco to play with for the summer.

Sounds great and runs better. Idle jets are a bit off but that's nothing.

Just throwing it out here but if anyone wants it, a rust free mk1 built I'll drive it home for 5gs plus gas
