Well ive been lurking in the background for a while now whilst ive been doing up my caddy and thought it was about time i introduced myself and the old van.
This is my first caddy but ive had 5 MK2 Golfs including 2 VR6's a 16v and an 8v and an extremely rare MK2 oettinger 16v.I also had a MK1 GTI years ago.
I fancied the van to carry my Racing Quad around in but after driving it for about 2 months i decided the 1.6 diesel was too slow so i ripped it bits and started the makeover.
Progress has been slow lately but im getting there, ive fitted the MK3 Golf subframe in order to fit the 2.8 VR6 in and also fitted the pedal box and relocated the brake servo. The engine has been in and now im just preparing the van for paint which seems to be taking longer than the subframe mounting did. The VR will be getting a taste of a Turbo and its been fully rebuilt and it runs on an Emerald ECU. The engine was in my MK2 and was putting out 198 bhp then with just the ECU, stainless exhaust and a filter.
Not sure if the photo's have worked but i will try to get some up.
