fairy tale

Post by Jeroenvgfn » Thu Sep 22, 2011 4:41 pm

Long long time ago in a country far far away :joker

A guy decided to buy a Callaway Turbosystems turbokit for Volkswagen A1 platform
and then he bought some more :jsmile
---------

Last year I sold my Corvette and bought the Volkswagen cabriolet

This week I started preparations to swap current 1.8 100hp powerplant for the Turbocharged version.

I will post updates untill the car is running , Iff I manage to get it running again :wtf :help

J, if your VW has 100hp now, how much do you estimate once the turbo is installed?

at this moment is has 0hp :joker

I hate gathering parts and people lying at me,
I bought a new engine harnass to keep/save the original to power the CIS injection.
But the guy who sold a complete not abused cable harness is a dickhead whether he knew it or not about the cutted wires :afire
