Pretty darn cool. Saw the pics on IG. Do you plan to bring it to the iPd garage sale sometime soon?

Might be a cool swap in your future, Doug, except maybe with a 240 wagon body.

Yeah I plan next year to be at the IPD garage sale. I really pushed to make it this year but It just didn't happen. Build is just taking me a little longer than expected. But I'm on the homestretch for making it road worthy. Picked up a parts car, an 99 S70 AWD the other day for $400 and I have a ton of stuff coming in the mail. Just finished installing Vida from 1moretech. My dice showed up today.

After reading your article, I can't believe how quickly your project came to fruition. That's a lot of work in a short period of time.

I had it, quite beat up but I would of repaired it if I failed the p80 dash. p80 dash just easier and cheaper than 142... cost of custom gauges. Hard part would have been trying to retrofit everything under the dash like the defrost, and all plumbing... all the electrical. Seeings the firewall is still the V70 it just makes more since. Like I still have plumbing to the rear passenger floor board.

Thank you for reading! Honestly I'm still in shock how quickly I have done it looking back at pics and stuff. I even had breaks inbetween waiting on parts and stuff when nothing was getting done. I waited a month to start front clip because I was waiting on intercooler and piping and something else.

Pretty sure the GTI is now bullshit free I think it might be time to tear back into the 5.044. Life is a circle.

Built my 3" Downpipe today in a couple hours. Been doing a lot of other work as well. Took manifold off to do contactless TB kit, cleaned up the Mani. boost gauge, oil pressure gauge. Put the new prop shaft in today. Been doing welding still. Non exciting stuff lol. Need to order 3 inch flex pipe and 3 inch electric cutout.
