    Update from across the pond ..........stalled out on the VR6 head swap need more parts and help I cant get right now but the good news is the butchered engine swap 16v is alive and seemingly very well. After three tests no more fall off at 4 grand it now revs well up to a (chipped) redline of 7000 the car has crazy mid and tall power tires on it are older and dry so they peel on into the third gear change. I have chased a bunch of electrical problems all related to the previously mentioned engine swap but now it seems to be all sorted out but timing and the basic mixture setup. I also need a new set of those beautiful cis fuel injector lines you all can get over there but dont know how to go about it any help would be much appreciated thanks ..........

    Never mind Jon in the midst of a rather spirited test run yesterday my e-brake cable broke in a very bad spot on the run and as a result the car swapped ends on me and we backed it into the woods of the little rallye route we built . Yes you heard right I killed my absolutely gorgeous mk2 crazy powerful 16v swapped project she is dead and gone now for parts to a friend of mine. I am crushed but oh well as the saying goes over here SH*T happens. Time to concentrate all efforts on my 01 12v jetta and try to acquire this really nice mk3 jetta I know of down the road. What a crazy crummy thing to happen right at the final nutz and bolts stage of a gorgeous car luckily I am fine didnt have the four way belts in yet and since we backed into the crash noone got dinged at all. But more than being out my money on the car it was really really a fine example of a well modded surviving mk2 . Worst part is I gotta tell my girl somehow who would have been my co-driver but she was at work, thank goodness think any further rallye competition would have been a no go had she been through that scary fifteen seconds . I have had such great luck lately I am wondering if I should buy a vtec Honda ........... oh sorry lost my mind for a moment there. Lol thanks all talk again soon
