Matts 1981 VRirocco

Matt wanted to be able to jump in his Scirocco and drive it everyday, without worrying about the failing CIS system leaving him on the side of the road.   To overhaul the 1.8 and rebuild the CIS system was a realistic option, however after looking at the cost of the rebuild he realized he was well on his way to a later model motor swap.  Even better.  Better mileage from an 02 controlled fuel system, more power, easier to find parts. Win-win!

On to the evidence!!

1.8t Powered Go-Kart

Steve built this man sized go-kart based off an Ariel Atom, all hand built, no kits or rolling chassis.  He dropped it off for a tidy up on the wiring and to add a couple other items.

We took a quick note of what needed to be done:

We got to work straight away  cleaning and removing excess wiring and general mess

Now to start the rebuilding:

Concealed under the dash is one of our sealed fuse-boxes we use for large load motor swaps, or in this case, a complete car system:

We also installed a battery disconnect switch, push button start system, a working obd2 port for diagnostics and live data logging.

 

Interested in a project like this? Send us an email, we would love to talk with you about your crazy idea, and how we can help you make it happen, Steve built this car when everyone said he couldn’t, wouldn’t or shouldn’t. That sounds to me like perfect kind of motivation!

S&P Radiator and Intercooler Stack

We shortened up our dual pass radiator, and made it stockier, 2.5″ thick core, so that we could put a 21×2.5×3″ intercooler core on the top of it.  Now we can add a condenser to the front if we need to, or tuck it all the way under the core support and make some room for that 1.8t log manifold.

We should have this ready for shipment by mid to late February, we are sorting out the last bits of attachment points, testing outlet sizes and making piping kits for 1.8t and TDIs

Keep your eye out for a purchase date!

SHAWWTYS ARE HERE!!

Look at that, a radiator that fits UNDER your core support, now you can tuck it out of your way.  Great for CARBS, ITBS, or even the big VR6 swaps..  We have a special shroud for these radiators, and as with our other radiators, they use the stock fan switch, and factory size coolant inlet and outlets.

Grab just the radiator HERE

S&P Digital to Analog Tach Converter/Adapter with Cylinder Correction

Here is our “magic” box !! Its a dual purpose unit and has 2 modules in it, digital>analog + cylinder conversion. It’s used for many applications, putting a VR6/1.8t/TDI/2.0 into a mk1/2 and retaining your factory cluster.  (However if you wanted to drop an ls1 into your mk1 and drive the stock tach, this will do it for you)


This module will allow your factory cluster to read the correct rpm of the engine. It will save time on not having to do a dash swap or retrofitting the 6 cylinder cluster and allow you to maintain that stock sleeper look inside your mk1 or mk2.

In stock and ready to ship HERE

 

We are going to test soon on vanagon, beetle ect for those running subaru or late model swaps in their aircooled beasts..
