    MK7... Restoration? High Mileage Rebuild

    No real updates - was on vacation around the new year. No luck with an affordable parts car. I did pick up a clutch for the build, and have a line on a motor to possibly swap in (would have to refresh trans)

    MK7... Restoration? High Mileage Rebuild

    Parts car went for $1500 over what I wanted to spend, so decided to tear down the original engine to scope out a rebuild. Unfortunately, not only was the #1 cylinder full of coolant, but the #4 piston had melted right through! The cylinder walls are moderately scored, but I haven't found...

    MK7... Restoration? High Mileage Rebuild

    Merry Christmas! Was able to get the engine separated from the transmission & subframe removed. I've got a bid in on a parts car. Fingers crossed it comes through.

    MK7... Restoration? High Mileage Rebuild

    Spent some time after work today getting the front end torn down. Lots of oil in the charge pipes. Pulled the plugs and scoped the cylinders- Oil and debris throughout. On the lookout for a new drivetrain.

    MK7... Restoration? High Mileage Rebuild

    Likely looking for a salvage donor car for the engine/trans. Chased HP on my last car. Might keep the motor in this car for a build though just for fun.

    MK7... Restoration? High Mileage Rebuild

    Picked up this 2015 MK7 today. After wrecking my previous GTI 2 years ago now, I'd never quite gotten the car out of my system. While browsing marketplace I stumbled upon perhaps the cheapest non wrecked GTI ever. Loaded it onto a trailer and got to work. The car is a 2015 6MT Autobahn with...

    My Deathtrap GTI build

    Thanks guys! I've been enjoying the car lately. Grabbed a few photos of it this morning after a drive. Yes it rubs under compression. It's live-able. May get the fenders rolled eventually.

    My Deathtrap GTI build

    Just got the car back from wrap. I think it turned out great, and am mostly just excited for it to all be one color again! I still need to re-pin and install the diff module, and clean up the small oil leak/odds and ends on the car. Getting close 🤟

    My Deathtrap GTI build

    Small update- Life has gotten in the way of progress on the car a lot lately, but this past week I was finally able to get some things rolling! I discovered a new appreciation for wrap installers. I got about 3/4 of the way finished before running out of material, which is now out of stock...

    Swapping a Wavetrac LSD into a VAQ Equipped car

    If the donor is non-VAQ, you may have to do the swap. It will likely be missing the casting for the bolts on the passenger side of the case where the VAQ attaches. Unless you were going to use half the case from your current trans?

    Swapping a Wavetrac LSD into a VAQ Equipped car

    Dave Nailed it as usual. Wavetrac makes a model that can be installed while keeping your VAQ diff. I chose to go wavetrac for the above reasons, and like my car to be as simple as possible. Less to break! My transmission/diff has held up amazingly well for being built by me. I keep thinking...

    Mk7 dragy times, 60-130, 1/8, 1/4,

    LC and NLS were turned off after issues with initial maps that turned out to be my fault on the build. Not sure if they have been turned back on. I don't know how it would be physically possible to shift faster or maybe I just suck at driving... Shifts all feel good to me. Will ask my tuner...
