Nice ride. I don't think you lowered the value. If any you increased the value by 5$$$. Made it a drivablefast fun car with style. Done right swaps are valuable to the right person. I don't like the pancake motor.

Justin, it has type 1 hockey stick so I'm jacking off finding the right spot for the set screw.

I really wanna make a video but need another person! It will happen.

Maybe Subaru parts could fix it?

Sounds like you need a back seat passenger with an iPhone. I might have access to a GoPro too..

Gonna break it in to Kelley park, San Jose! It works around here, no reason it wouldn't work to San Jose and back. That's includes some a mountain range to go up and down! I'll never forget rolling my super beetle to that show a few years ago, it was a breeze!!

Took this car for a spin yesterday, seems to work fine. I hope to do some more driving this week with it, but feel like it's a solid good working set up.

Kelley park I'll be there!! Deck open or deck closed?

Just tweaking out on small shit here and there with this car, some stuff Subaru / IRS conversion related, some shit I wanted to change for a while. I'm feeling good with this set up. Gonna drive the fuck outta this car now. No future builds planned right now of my own. Gotta focus on a few swaps in my shop.

Andy took me for a rip in his square yesterday. Say what you want about Subi motors in a VW.... What a blast! I think it's awesome!

Car was a success. Radiator set up works perfect!!! Fuel system works great. Small shit to tinker on but it's a driver now..
I'll let this thread rest some now. Time to work on other peoples rides.
