thanks guys! There's just so much i didn't think of and still have to do, even though putting 16v's in mk1's is something i've done several times. Doing just an ABF swap would have been done in a weekend, overhauling (totally forgot to take pictures when the engineblock was open ), renewing and improving a lot of stuff is also taking a lot of time, which i don't really have right now. I just want to half ass it right now..

it's a kit by Grasshopper Drag (Claus von Essen) which uses some mk1 5speed parts and the original shifterbox. Shifts a lot tighter than the 02A cablebox

Engine bay looks already very nice, what kind of clutch cable are you using and where did you get it from.
if i compare the length of my mk1 o2a clutch cable from htt and yours.
there a big difference in length, yours is longer.
and is the end connected to the gearbox bracket at the end facing towards the rearend of the car.
i also notice that you cut and rewelded the up and down moving lever.
to aling the bended stainless arm with the balljoint connected to the above mentoined lever.

clutch cable is from a mk2 1300. The lever on the gearboxtower you mean? Yeah, you have to bend that one.

Haven't done much up until this week, was so busy with work, taking trips to Worthersee and the USA and spent more time working on and driving the harley

here are some Instagram updates though:

fuelpump, housing and cabriolet axles with new cv joints



g60 brakes installed and bled (leaving the massive rear drum brakes on for now:



Took some Monroe AirMax airshocks with me from a US trip last june.
They're for a Corvette, but work just fine with new bushings;



Got more stuff done:
Installed fuelpump, filters and lines
routed coolant lines and radiator
installed a Spal fan (original wouldn't fit because i moved the radiator to the right)
Finally found fitting velocity stacks
hooked up vacuum for brakebooster and fuelpressure
lots of small stuff i forgot

So this is where i'm at right now:



Still got to make a couple of brackets (coilpack, throttlecable, etc), weld an exhaust system (from the Sharan VR6 parts) and make an engine and interior (84 fusebox to 77 dash) wiring loom.

i just love it marc.
imo you're fine on the caddy rear drums,they're big as f$ck.
i'm using the same fuelpump on my turbo mk1,not too happy with it,it's so damn noisy.....but well,i guess i have to live with that.

mine is under the hood.....maybe that is what generates the problem.it has to suck all the way from the back but if it works,it works right?

did a preliminary wiring to check everything and it's alive!


Runs a little rough on this basemap, but starts up right away and idles smooth!
I think i need a new alternator though, it sounds horrible and is only giving out 13.6V

I just checked the oil level on the Vento for a little trip to Disneyland tomorrow, and guess what, that 2E has the exact alternator bracket i need to clear the framerail, so i'll be swapping those out next week
