Yes I think I could make it work and I was tempted to do it but on the other hand I was thinking I will leave the suspension to be the last parts to replace on this car and get something else than coilovers for it, just in case I wanna go a little lower

So I had this brilliant idea of asking my little girl to rev the vr6 while I try to catch a video, its the first time she ever revs a a car and she sounds like she was having fun with it. The very first time she tried revving I couldn't catch on the video but she redlined it pretty hard, I thought the motor was going to jump out of the engine bay LOL

So we made this video first starting on the engine bay, it was too dark for my cell phone camera to see but you can still hear it and then I walked on the back of the car while she revved

I agree, aftermarket exhausts let them sing freely but the beauty is in the motor

She needs some tlc before I can start messing with her. CEL is gone and parts are being ordered

After I get her running 100% I want to get the few bits that will be needed to get her boosted using the setup removed from the 2.0

So I decided to just update this thread instead of making a new one

Here is a list of thing that needs to be done right now on the car

Adjust shifter cable - car wont shift in 5th

Oil change

Fix a very small and random coolant leak near the lower hose going to radiator, got check

Brake on all 4 corners - ordered today

Motor mounts - car pushes to the left when hard on the gas

Lower valance - got a stock replacement

2002 clear fender markers - I have them just need to install

That's not bad if those are the only issues. I think my golf will need some motor mounts pretty soon

Theres other little things that needs attention, this is just the first round

So today I got a stock valance in pretty good shape, all it needs is cleaning and sanding and it will be ready for painting. I'm going to wait for a warmer day to do that so I can paint the front bumper, rear valance and cover a few scrapes at the same time

We had 73 degree weather here today. Would've been a good day for painting!
