  1. Worth a few quid now I suspect. Cost me about £1k back in the day..!
  2. Yeah.. you don’t want it. It was full of filler! Fun to make etc but in hindsight I should have stuck to a late oem dash/interior.
  3. Ha. Funny how all the old cars have ended up. Well if anyone knows where my old shell is then please speak up.
  4. Hi all, Its been a very long while since I was on this forum and it appears I can only post in this section but I was wondering if anyone knows where my old awd corrado shell or complete car ended up? Reg was J324 OPJ. It was the blue awd 1.8t corrado that used to have the tvr interior. If you know could you let me know? thanks Ben
  5. Haven’t been on here for many years but heard about Bally’s passing and wanted to pass my best to his family and friends, knew him from the scene back in the early 2000’s! Very sad.
  6. Glad you guys got the parts! DOX.. sent a pm mate! Paul.. these calipers are for at least 330mm discs but probably more like 350mm discs! Not a chicken chance in Thailand they will fit under your 16" schmidts...
  7. Clutch came off a 2.5 inline 5 test engine runnng 200bhp. It will fit a VR and the power is roughly the same so should work fine. Its basically brand new! All in will be £50. thanks, Ben
  8. Hi Bobby, So basically the ignition amplifier is used to boost the signals from the ECU to the individual coilpacks, without it the coilpacks won't provide enough power to generate a spark. It normally sits on the side of the OEM plastic airbox with a heat sink bolted to it and a rubber seal around it to keep it cool as it gets very hot! Don't use it without the oem heatsink though as it will overheat and melt! (got the T-shirt! lol) The plugs for this will be on your 1.8T loom.. follow the wires from the coil packs. I think its a 4 pin one end and 5 pin the other. You will need this item for your conversion. Aftermarket ECU or ME3.5 or 7. Hope that helps! These are about £75 new so its half price plus you get a 2nd used one free :-) Let me know. cheers Ben

  10. A mate sent me the link to my old shell.. Humm do I have room? Lol ! Can't believe the dash is still kicking about! Bolts in using corrado dash fixing points so shouldn't take long to mount up.. Prob not the sort of thing seen in today's vw scene though? Happy to help where I can..
  11. So there is, hope your well?! The engine is a N/A engine from the US market, but mine was a test engine so only done a few dyno miles. However they are proven for 750bhp+ so will be fine. Bought the turbo for it already ;-) will keep the updates going on edition38..
  12. It's not!! That project will be done but after the kids have left home I think :-)
  13. You did get there in the end.. see my old syncro bits went to good use ;-)
  14. Been a long time since I was on here.. was just wondering what happened to all the bits off my AWD Corrado.. any ideas? Anyone come across the shell? Sold it to a chap who said he was going to be putting a 16v turbo into it.. interior - any ideas?! Any old boys from back in the day still got their corrado's? Ben
  15. Glad to see it finished Charlie. I saw it recently in the phirm actually. What's the goal with the new setup and what happened with the old setup for it to go south? Musty you had a rid in my car didn't u? Be good to see you chaps soon at some point? Maybe a Coupehaus lunch around Easter time? All the best Ben
  16. Hi guys.. A friend of mine owns this car and yes I did do the work on it. It's currently sat on my driveway waiting for me to pull my finger out and finish of a few minor items before it goes for it's mot. Its actually finished bar a new side light bulb and setting the ideal up. There not great pictures, true, but i'm sure if someone was interested they would ask for better pics or view it in the flesh. With regards to the 'thrashing' on the airfield.. It was the day we mapped it. We were testing the full load map to make sure it was pulling well and there were no low spots. How else do you do it? What you didn't see in the footage was the countless hours going up and down with a laptop adjusting the maps for different load %, running temps, etc. The reason the brakes got so hot is simple.. We were on a half mile runway and were on the brakes all day.. Standard brakes are fine for road but not for a track environment. The discs and pads were on their way out at the time anyway. Its a great car with a great engine (with only 9k on the engine!!). Would make a perfect daily. It's worth what ever someones prepared to pay for it. The owners had good offers so far, so there isn't a shortage of people seriously interested including my daughter!
  17. Have you got my old interior fitted yet Dan? Any pics?
  18. Its sat under a cover at my folks house waitng for me to finish the car off.. I've just bought a house so I've had no time to work on the car. I sold it on to a mate so he will take delivery of this car hopefully sometime in March/April. Its changed a fair bit since you had it thats for sure.. Ben
