Mark: 2004 vw GTI 1.8T

Objective: Make a 500 hp DD on a switch.
Or at least a 350-400 HP DD ....on a switch.


I am tossing the idea of

A), the 2190CC Stroke out

ALH TDI block(from a tdi vehicle)
100mm Eurospec Forged Crankshaft with correct Oil Pump gear to utilise the stock 1.8T oil pump
carrillo 159mm/21mm Forged Connecting Rods
83.5mm Forged Pistons w/ 9.5:1 nominal Compression Ratio
ARP 12mm Head studs to allow the use of a 20V head on an ALH block

Plus software and a gt3071 turbo, possibly water-meth injection and a FMIC.

Im looking at around 5-6.5k if i source the parts myself, and TDI parts are easy enough to get from people i know.

B) 2008cc stroker kit
92.8mm Forged 2.0 FSI Forged Crankshaft with correct Oil Pump gear to utilise the stock 1.8T oil pump
Carrillo 144mm/20mm Forged Connecting Rods
83mm Forged Pistons w/ 8.9:1 nominal Compression Ratio
ARP headstuds.

big turbo, fmic, watermeth, software

about 3-3.5 grand

C)
Ghetto stroke it to a 2.0(barely for 1000 and pop a smaller 2871R on with an intercooler for a K more, tune is required, prolly APR).

Im going to upgrade the brakes to something a bit beefier(prolly do this before any engine mods).
Full suspension, upgraded axles, and other things of that nature.

GHL exhaust(3 inch on a and b, 2.5 on c), downpipe, no resonator.....this things gonna make me deaf.


The looks:
(prolly after i pay it off)
Exterior:

Bmw M3 split 10 spokes with 20 MM spacers and rolled fenders.


Im still tossing paint ideas around though :\, dunnp what to do.
Im thinking a red and black two tone, top half will be black bottom half will be a deep gloss red(lambo red is smexy).
Jetta front end swap
De-badge


Interior(MAYBE):
Black or White Porsche leather with red trim around the seats and the interior(dark and foreboding or medical candy???? hmmmm)
Hide-able Blue racer gauges molded into dash, cause they match stock :p


Im going to install a lockout switch(with a key) into it, so when i flip it off, near stock DD car, turn it on, street cleaner, all the dash gauges will turn on so you can see them.

But none of the body or look good mods will be done until the motor is running fast, save the jetta front swap and the bmw rims, cause i like em.

So what do you think?
Is my death wish good enough to pursue?
I think it might be....:)






Photochop of my proposed design soon.

What I've divulged from this thread/posting:

You're going to spend alot of money for not alot of performance.

You will get your ass handed to you on the freeway by some kid in a 15-year-old Nissan 300ZX Turbo car that has $1,000 in it, and knows what he's doing. Or, perhaps it'll be someone in a swapped 240 with a mild turbo upgrade, etc... who knows, of course, what they're doing. This could also apply to a kid with a Civic and a 16 or 18 swap, with a decent turbo kit on it, who will hurt your feelings... and, he'll do it for less than half of what you have into your driveline.

Your car will burn to the ground because it is prone to electrical nightmares and will cause you much anguish.

I beg that you reconsider this build, because it's going to put you out of money, out of patience, and generally leave you with a car that will be impossible to sell. Keep that car STOCK as a daily driver, buy a factory turbo car that's older (and not your VW), and start your build. Either way, you're going to end up with a $10,000 debt in parts and a car that doesn't satisfy.

Just saying... :cocktail: :mrgreen:

Oh man. I wish I could remember that quote from the original Fast and the Furious, where the kid looks into Paul Walker's Engine Bay and says something about it. This would be the perfect time for this. Man, I would be the belle of the ball if only I could remember.

Instead, i'll just say that you're spending tons of money, and that's not how i'd do it, but you should do what makes you happy.

Jesse: You know what? This will decimate all... after we put about fifteen grand or more under the hood. If we have to, overnight some parts from Japan.

Or this one?

Jesse: I see an AIC controller. It has direct port nitrous injection.
Dom: Yeah. And a stand-alone fuel management system. Not a bad way to spend $10,000.

I think your making yourself sound like a dumb ass with this "street cleaner on a switch" bull shit.
In English, what does that mean?
Umm. . . what do you mean? Im saying that dude is making himself sound like a idiot by trying to build a split personality car. Thats the reasoning for me saying what I did.
