hey every one im new to the forum.

i live in switzerland where things of this nature are not allowed but will be running it on garage plates so not a plroblen

Any hows basically i wamt to build a mk3 1.8t, it would be using out of a 2 16v as a base car. Ive been able to sort out the engine data sheets so will be able to ick my way through and choose an engine.

What i relay would like to know is all the mechanical side of things as in what engine mounts, drive shafts, hubs, gearboxes etc...... has any one else undertaken this or knows of a thread where i could get the information from or any other source i prefer to read n advance before undertaking a task.

i will be using and emerald to run things as ive been told that using the original loom is a mare?

i will have the luxury of a 2 posts lift and garage at my disposale.

thanks gavin
