Background
I have owned this car for 10yrs. It was completely STOCK and unmolested with 107k (NOT RUNNING). I paid $300 cash and a built Honda B16 head for it back in 2010. Previous owner said it was running just fine, he bought himself a Camaro and parked the DSM for a year. When he went to start it back up it cranked but wouldn't start. He let it sit for another 2yrs before he posted it on Craigslist where I first saw the car and jumped right on it. I don't remember exactly how much he wanted for it but I believe it was over $1000. I went to go see it, upon pulling up to his house I noticed he had a Honda in the driveway so I started to bargain and wouldn't you know it HE TOOK THE DEAL! I towed it home the same day and got to work. I purchased a new battery, compression checked it & checked for fuel pressure. I didn't have either or. I bought and installed a Walboro 255, put new spark plugs in and bled the lifters....first crank after the lifters were done it fired right up!

It was my daily up until early 2014 where the transmission had a catastrophic episode where the output shaft ring piece snapped off of the casing. I became a daddy in July 2013 and had luckily purchased another car to fit my son in comfortably. I didn't have any time or money to fix it so it's just been sitting since. However, I have acquired most of my mods while the car has been down.

-Fast forward to 2018, I got divorced. I finally have time and some funds to complete my build.

It is now Dec. 2020 and I am hoping to have this car up and going by or before Feb. 2021. Waiting on a few parts to come in. So far I bought a 7bolt off a '95 TSi with 137k. I've done all new gaskets, seals, water pump and timing components, deleted the balance shafts, installed new valve stem seals, resurfaced the head, installed 3g lifters, FP2 cams, a Cometic head gasket and ARP head bolts/studs. Also installed thermal Intake manifold & throttle body gaskets.
