I'm sure some folks are bookmarking this build, but found this on copart if someone is serious about doing their own build

Issue is the interior might not be something you can fork over to the Golf R (Biohazard), however the parts you want are in mint condition...I have an odd feeling I might be jumping on this bandwagon in the next year or two with my power train set to expire shortly and wanting a new car...

@GNBRETT any update on your build? Really interested to see what you had done with it. Also will bombard you with a million questions after unfortunately, so well - up to you if you reply haha

Biohazard usually just means blood. Looks like a couple bullet holes on the hood and driver door, maybe? Someone got shot in the car?

Bullet holes and a baby seat in the back. Yikes.


Hard to tell if the car is starting though, no pics of the dash on and ODO unavailable isn't good.

haha ya, I spoke with Alex yesterday, and you want something that you can salvage the engine / transmission and Haldex from. Not a whole lot out there right now, I think it's not too bad.

I think though this is going to be such a great option though the RS3 swap if you are planning on keeping the car long term. One thing I was worried about is the weight of the 2.5T vs 2.0T (transmission included) but it looks like a wash for weight due to the aluminum vs iron blocks. So the fun dynamics of the R won't be gone, just a lot more power potential and an engine that provides noise for the 2.0T soundaktor.

Still a year or so of powertrain - and an excuse to have some major work done on my R, in Connecticut lol, looking forward to future updates

He said Syvecs, ok you have my attention lol. I know its stupid expensive but it really seems to be the answer for built motor/high hp.
-also, that exhaust is dead sexy lol.
