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
These adapters are great if you are a mk1 owner with a mk3/4/5 swapped chassis and are needing to keep that mk1 cluster working perfectly.. Simply install this in one of the spare locations found in the coolant system, attach the included ground wire, thread your sensor into the adapter, attach your original signal wire and boom, a working mk1 cluster again!
They also work for aftermarket gauge installations for the mk3/4/5 owners, install the sensor into the adapter, ground the adapter with the provided ground wire, install into the coolant flange, enjoy an aftermarket gauge in your cockpit!
With the help of our Canadian friends we have put together a nice bolt in hydro clutch kit for your mk1. Now putting that six speed 02m into your mk1 chassis just became a little easier.
Our kit comes with the backing plate, wilwood .75 master cylinder, and optional slave cylinder if needed. 02m users will need a threaded bleeder adapter which will be offered soon, but for now can be purchased from vendors like 034 motorsport or ECS.
On the same weekend that herds of VW owners head for the usually damp H20i show in Ocean City, we chose to go south for a get together of Mk1 owners. For the last 5 years Yates and his friends have been putting together a relaxed weekend meet. While the event was small, the weekend was full of well planned events. This group of enthusiasts embody everything that got me into VWs; friends that become family. There were a couple of cars that needed some coaxing to continue on one of our cruises through the old town of Saint A, and everyone was out there helping in some way or another. If you have the opportunity, plan to make it to the next A1 Classic, it will be a permanent event for us here at S&P. We would love to see them grow it into a 100 plus mk1 gathering. Come down and get to know Christian and Manny, you won’t be disappointed!
A couple pics from the event.. we will upload a video from some of the cruising later.
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.
A custom radiator like OURS needs a custom shroud, well now we have one. These aluminum shrouds are designed to be used with our radiators, they can also be fitted to a stock mk1 or mk2 radiator with minimal user modification.
We are using a high quality, well balanced 10″ 1650 CFM fan. The fans can be purchased separately HERE.
Finishes for the shrouds will include, polished or raw aluminum, for an extra fee we can have them powder coated. We will be offering an option as a complete cooling package with our radiators, already wired with a relay and temp sensor all you will need to do is hook up a labeled power and ground, plumb the coolant lines and you’re running cooler than before! Check out the shrouds in our store NOW!
