ErBall's Thunderbunny Build log

Nice build. Enjoying the progress.

What's your take on the SPM Mounts? Do you have the full mount kit (enigne/trans/dogbone)? I ask because I'm getting ready to buy the kit for my MKV.

Thanks.

Let me know what you think of BM+
My ultimate goal is to switch to Maestro and get BM+
Seems to be pretty flexible, which is what I was hoping for. Just getting boost control setup is a learning experience. I'll be using it for boost control, meth, and lastly switching my apr lpfp kit out for an 044 in an Integrated Engineering surge tank.

interested in your thoughts/observations on the neuspeed intercooler in comparison with the godspeed when you're up and running.

thanks
Did take it out for a quick cruise and actually felt like I noticed a difference. Granted i did this and the throttle pipe at the same time. I'll try to get some good pics soon, but i mainly wanted it as it fits the thunderbunny front really well.

I dig the mounts, i just have engine mount and tranny mount, but I'll be adding an HPA subframe puck soon. It's definetly got some vibs, but nothing in comparison to the clutch noise.

Great build. In particular I like the great deal you got on that stage 3. The TDI cup style front end is trick too.

When u plan on doing the install?
Hoping to start very soon, starting to pull the current turbo kit off this week. Finally have everything, accumulating all of it has been the hardest part. The only thing I have yet to buy are the fuel injectors, and frankly I'm not sure what i'm going to do there. Going to be running an auxiliary injector for sure though.

do you want mine
I'd throw you 300 for em. Otherwise probably not.

So I'm finally getting somewhere. Got this pulled out and shipped off to the new owner.



Engine coming out next weekend, hopefully. Otherwise righter after the holdays.

Was cheap, might as well.

On that note this happened today. Took me and eurocars ~2 hours to get it pulled out. Starting the teardown next weekend
