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!!
Slightly better after a washing!

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!
