Hi from Czech Republic

Recommended Posts

Hi :) 


Just bought a VW mk3 Golf Variant VR6 Syncro - ABV engine, 140kW, beige interior, 2 prev owners with service history, 233t km on cluster. 

Original paint, nearly mint condition, 1% rust, past 5 years driven only in summer. 


Already changed: projektzwo headlights, oem bonnet, and mask...can't decide whether to go for Yachting or OEM look on this one :-D And have projektzwo cup mirrors ready to be installed :) 


Looking forward to get some good tips here ;-)

SOoo...A few has changed over the winter... 


Car is r8 now broken into pieces... :) engine out, whole rebuilt, engine bay cleaned...


Engine: head work + Schimmel 263 cams, lightweight pulleys, new engine mounts, refurbished manifold + cover, new gaskets, new chains, new piston rings, new ignition unit, new hoses, cooler, resealed AC, painted block + cleaned trans, new clutch kit, refurbished flywheel, refurbished starter, refurbished alternator...and maybe something more :D 


+ BBS R17 from Polo Cross, tuned muffler, painted fenders + bonnet....


Lastly, but most importantly I managed to acquire an Oettinger manifold (schrick without logo) with complete setup and ECU from VW Sharan 2.8 VR6...for a dime :lol:

Thinking about restoring it and putting it on my engine later this season... 


Here are some pics from works which are still underway...expecting it to be running mid April... :)

It´s been a long few months spent in the garage but the engine is up and running :)


It was quite a relief when it rolled over. It has some slight ticking but I presume it has to settle down, first 500km will be slow and steady to get the engine into the proper state :) 


Then dyno and some tune to get it smoother running :)
