    not yet mate, the metal works being fab'd as we go, i have the seals and floor pan.
    I have a plan but winging it at the moment. I have most of the upgrade parts etc like 100mm hubs and shafts to go with the engine. I'll be replacing alot of the rubbers brake and fuel lines etc.
    Were going to get the car structually sound then we will start bolting and welding new bits on then once thats all done strip it down and prep the body for a new coat of paint and raptor seal.
    it's not meant to be a quick build but who knows. lol.

    Cheers Elroy, I copied the idea off of the mk1 gti forum, keeps the gear cables safe inside the caddy but deep enough that I can keep all of my dash looking original, then I'll extend the gear lever to original height.

    that's the one I've been copying, it's bigger on my phone lol. i've slightly changed what he done to allow the box to sit lower and have a little bit of wiggle room.
    I'll find the picture and stick them up.

    it'll be tight where the tunnel narrows but I think a 2 1/2" pipe will fit in there. the box will sit over to one side and I'm hoping to have just enough gap to slot it through. i suppose it's a work in progress as they say.
    but i will double check the gap with a tape instead of eyeballing it lol.

    hopefully get back to it very soon.

    Al, is this the correct ECU?

    That's correct bush fitment!

    The engine hangs on these mount and so when the weight is on the bush the rubber above will compress and the hole will end up in the middle of the mount

    If it was the other way up the mount would have very little movement and the gearbox would sag. I inherited this issue with Agent Orange. Took ages to work out what was causing the problem. the rear gearbox mount was under massive tension.

    I bought a mount with the rubber already installed upside down, I had no idea at the time , but it's certainly easily bolting the motor in with the mount correct
