    new pics...getting close

    I can almost feel the grit in my teeth! Should be ready soon! Still have to figure out clearance issues with the new console and the pedal adjust. Also thinking about a different gas tank. The price on this one was right and way better than what it had. New Jamar shifter needs some customizing as well. Jim up at HiDesert VW is working some serious magic into this car. I told him I would get the word out so, there ya go. His number is 760.669.7766

    New motor being built now...a monster 2386 with 044 heads, SCAT crank, Engle FK 8, Autocraft 1.4 to 1 rockers, topped off with some seriously worked 48 Dellortos. At 900lbs This car is going to crush a lot of LS cars! NOt all of them, but most! I am also completely stripping down the Mazzone and having it blasted and coated. Brraaaaap!
    VW Paradise is $$$$.. They have done some stuff for me over the years. I never had any issues with them, but always felt I was paying out the ass. LOL

    I like your car, cool to see people still interested in not building a v8 car "cause everyone else is doing it". I always like the Mazzones.

    I have an 84/94 in my Baja I built years ago. I loved taking it to glamis with no rear fenders. I have always used 86b WEb cams with 1.5 rockers, maybe 1.6(I think) it worked out to .505 or .55 lift. Absolutely carried the front wheels in first and second with a good shift.

    Awesome engine.

    After being in V8 stuff, I really enjoyed the VW, pretty silly when you consider what it is and that it is as fast as it is. Taught me some good lessions on HP/weight ratio.

    My father always gave me shit until I took him for a ride.

    It remains the most violently accelerating car I have built to date. Driving it in the rain can be a religious experience.
