Drag Race Newbie
I joined this forum back in 2014 right before I bought my car and I never considered making a "build thread" since I never thought my car was anything special but... last week I bought a big turbo kit so I figured i would finally make one and document the journey :iono:
Goal w/ BT: 400-430whp.
I dont care about having a crazy 600whp GTI or breaking any records, this is my daily and need it to be reliable.
There is a lot of shit I want to currently change like the wheels/tires, new suspension but one step at a time. The car was backed into last month by a garbage truck and its at the shop right now, should have it back this week. Big turbo and WMI kits should be going in soon.
I would have to go back years of pictures to really have an accurate timeline of my car so Im just gonna post my current setup as of right now.
Any feedback is appreciated it.
