Nice! Which 20vt block will you be basing the engine on?

So do you venture out to the Fendubbers Meets at all?

Which engine code is that then?

There is a fendubbers forum, but I don't really go on there much as it tends to be just general random chat on there mostly. They do meet every month in Cambridge though. Mic and I have been a few times. Some pretty cool cars there, and it's good to talk general VW bobbins every now and again.

In this case it's AGU. But they're all the same. Only A4's and Passat's have the 'weaker' 8v gti style block. Dont get weighed down with engine codes! Deep down, they're 'virtually' all the same!! Although A4's have a cast crank!

It's still sat in my garage! Sad Probably gonna have to sell it. Need funds to upgrade the Golf. Shame as it's a nice example.
