    Its a 92 GTI with vr6 swap from a 96 passat glx.
    there are so many mods done to it that I'm not going to bother writing it all down, If you have a question about a specific item, ask, and I shall answer :)

    NICE!!!!!!

    Looks like you need some better lighting, or it might just be me.

    Looks sick as hell though.

    those lights that you see on in the pictures are called "citylights" they are just a secondary bulb mounted in the headlight housing to emit a dull glow..

    they aren't actually my headlights.

    well for starters, the car came with a 1.8 8v 4 cyl with 94 hp,

    and I've swapped a 2.8 12v 6 cyle with 182 hp in.

    other than that. just an exhaust for now.. but supercharger plans in the future..


    EDIT: oh, and thanks to everyone for all the compliments :wavey:

    yeah.. once.. under crappy conditions I ran a 15.1 I'll do better this year, and I'll post my time slips when I do..


    In my opinion.. the wheels are what makes the car.. they are the stock wheels from it, only I seperated them, and put wider lips on.

    a few more pics..

    Some more chrome in the engine bay would compliment the rims really nice.
