Corrado 1.8 G60

Manufacture Date: 1989, model 1990: number 003011
Owner: The Green from Belgium, Antwerpen
Colorcode: LD6U (Dark green metallic was delivered from 1988 till 1990)
Bought on date: 1995

Information / Adjustments :
Below are the old spec, STUFF HAS CHANGED...
Color code is also old!

The car has been completely redone the past 4 years (it is now end of 2013).
Due to the issues with the body shop and the cost involved to get the engine ready, I lost interest a bit in this car..
For the moment it is "finished", engine runs (despite 2 minor leaks) and runs fine. I'm able to achieve less than 9L per 100km if I drive like a normal person ;).
Car runs 2bar of boost, only thing I'm thinking to change at some point is the cam, which I think I selected to be a bit too agressive, hence the reason why it spools at 4k. Boost does kick in a bit too agressive, there is absolutely nobody home before 4k (equal of about 90hp), but as soon as 4k is hit it is impossible to contol the car with 1 hand on the wheel (unless you have flat tarmac). I often need more than 1 lane, so caution is advised ;)

No pictures, no videos, car is off the road for the moment because:

I might continue this one in 2014 or 15 and only in case it gets the oldtimer status.
For the moment I'm building a passat G60 variant syncro for the Nurburgring so we can use it in the 2014 season of the touristenfahrten.
If we break the passat, the drivetrain will go into the corrado ;)

For fun I bought myself a Honda MSX125 or Grom for my last birthday, a lot cheaper to modify than cars and more fun! Nothing leaves stock...
