(little up date from the last few months)

So I've been spending lots of moneys on the gti over the last few days! decided to change out the bushes. also i had to change the rear shocks for my MOT as they had started to leak so decided it was time for them to go. took a long trip to go and pick up my new seats also not revealing anything yet need to have them re trimmed.

I also had my cams sent off to be re-profiled by 'piper cams' and decided id have a local machine shop port and polish the head while its off to hopefully give the girl some more powerrrrrr, think the next step will be a 4,2,1 manni and decat so if anyone has one please give me a message! :D 

Slowly getting there but I've had to find a new daily so progress has been slow on her over the last few months :( the "polow" is now done anyway and is up to an acceptable driving standard for me now! (just the usual tho nothing too expensive just coilies, wheels some light audio work, bigger breaks and an interior swap)

Few very special things have been purchased over the last few weeks including;

A one off custom back bumper thats currently being painted. 

Ordered an engine raiser kit too so I've pulled a few bits off the engine as they need some TLC.

Solid top mounts as i kept bending the top mount plates.

The porting is almost complete so the polishing will begin soon.

I had the boot plastic trimmed in carpet.

Door lock Blanks. (as one of mine had broken and another ones faded) 

(parents bought me a private plate)

 

keeping an eye out for;

A mk5/6/7 boot lid conversion.

High flow rad.

Pop out rears.

TT knee bars.

If anyone has any information on uprated Valves/springs for the GTI please comment, I've been told to go custom but the car isn't getting trashed round a track so if custom is the only option then i think standard ones will go back in. hoping to get the car/ engine all together and finished by february then focus on the interior.

Do you have hydraulic lifters on the shocks? Looks like you're actually in contact at the front! Nice...!  :)
