Facebook must have deleted them, i'll upload them here later on.

Already switched the alternators though, but took the throttlebodies and manifold off, and gave them to my buddy "MacGyver" to weld up. I wasn't happy with the sawed off stock mani and silicon couplers, it might flex too much when hot. Might be ok if you use carbs, they're forgiving, but injection is just too precise to deal with inlet volume fluctuations.

He called me today his alu welder broke down halfway through ,but i'm recovering from dental surgery, so no rush

And, is IT running?
How are the throttle boddies connected to the manifold now youre not using the silicone hoses?

I've got a audi 80 type81 with an ace/9a engine with the original bosch controller with a lot of problems.
I'm thinking to make a switch to ms , but i'm not sure wats the best, carbs or injection, and which parts i need.

I'm actually still working on this, the 2-3 spare hours i have free each month since i started my own business

I'll do a big photo-update later, but i damaged a throttlebody last week trying to make a better throttlemechanism (gaspedal throw was really short due to the bike linkage) I already bought and prepared a new set, so i can move on.

Oh, and a bought some new wheels last april in the US, had them refurbished by the Polish Pimp

Sometime around feb. 2013, i discovered that the crankshaftbearing was leaking oil, so i had to remove the gearbox. Chose to take the whole engine out, so i could so some other things i wanted to do anyway




Installed a new seal, changed the heat wrap to black (looks much better ), installed a OEM oilpan instead of the thin aftermarket one and had my flywheel lightened and balanced by Hurricane Racing:










On one of my trips to the US, one of my friends offered me a set of BBS E75 15" 5x130 three piece wheels with adapters
I had to have the adapters and centers machined, and sent them to Peter (RS-Velgen) for refurb and frontmount:






I couldn't find any decent exhaust for the Caddy, so i bought a brand new Jetex Golf 1 setup and welded my own exhaust. I never liked how the original exhaust exits out of the side, so i decided to let i come out the back. Can't wait to hear how it's gonna sound, Jetex is always known for their sound

I had a Moto-Lita steering wheel and a quick release hub lying around, so why not try to combine the two;




The wiring was a mess when i bought the Caddy, so instead of fixing it here and there, i decided to pull it all






Wasn't happy with the old coilpack bracket, so i made a new one



New throtttle pickup to give me full pedal throw instead of only 1/3, new brake vacuum lines to clean it all up and new Pipercross filters

Looks sweet especially with the new wheels. Motor is also looking very nice, sober, but clean (Less is more).
