    I am new to the site I have been working on cars since I was knee high to a grasshopper. Cars are my life I love to work on them but my favorite is to drive. I just Picked up a perfect 99 hatch for $600. The motor is gone but I figure I can build one that I like. Thanks a head of time for all the info.

    No it is perfect it was a guy's commuter he rebuilt the trans the cv axles. Then the motor went out. He went out and got a new GTI and just wanted to get rid of it. I got a great deal.

    sounds like a good k-series candidate to me. or better yet, build a killer d-series turbo. that would be cool to see to.

    bastard....j/k. it's an idea i would like to see after watching a turbo d-series at the track last weekend. it was a quick little car and you can build them on a budget. but regardless, good luck with the build and nice pick up.

    d16y8--cheap
    well put together kit-- 2-3 grand (not used shit and name brand parts)
    all the items that go along with a turbo'd car -- 1-2k

    id say a turbo d SHOULD cost you anywhere between 4 to 6k when all is said and done. (including exhaust, guages, fuel blah blah bob loblaw...)

    Welcome! Turbo D setups can be very potent for very small amounts of cash...
