Thank you for the offer, they do use factory cables, but from a MK4 R32. I have mine adjusted up tight and lever only can go 2 clicks. The tiny calipers just don't hold that well.I have some collars that can be used to pre-load the cables if you wanted me to send you some. I’m assuming you’re using factory e-brake cables?
Runs great, it had a blown intake manifold seal. Finally tracked down the issue. They drove the car quite a bit just to be sure it was ok. I drove the car home, about 50 miles on the freeway. Just constant speed driving mostly with some stop and go.Ok, here I go again. I pick the car up tomorrow. They say it is done and runs great........
Thank you and thank you for all your help on this project buddy.I am really happy for you my friend. Finally you can enjoy the car as it should be after all of this long time and too much money
I pretty sure that you will love the power and the way you feel when the car behavior change completely once you push it hard.
Congratulations man and enjoy it to the max.
No question 5 points much better. I have the Schroth 4pts for now. The Recaro Sporster isn't ported for that 5th belt so I would have to replace the seats.I'd very strongly recommend you upgrade from the 4 point harness to a 5 or 6 point setup. Schroth is the only company I'd trust 4 points from, and even then they're not as good as a 5/6 point setup, especially since you already have aftermarket seats, no reason to not have a sub belt imo.

While I am happy this thing is up and running I am suffering from project fatigue. Right now I just feel like selling it but that feeling will pass so I am just going to let it sit for a little bit and decide if I go the rest of the distance and purchase a truck and trailer.
Thanks for the pep talk, I will get over it. It has taken 2 years and it was one problem after another that really should have taken 6-7 months.GIAC, I've been following along and it looks like a great build. I'm glad your car is finally up and running. I'm sorry that you're fatigued by it at the moment.
I've had this happen a couple times through the years. You pour a ton of time and effort into a project and then when it's done (one way or another) you need to take a break from it.
My other hobby is high power rocketry. I spent a year and a bunch of cash designing, machining and assembling a rocket for a record attempt. It made it to mach 3.4 and then all hell broke loose. I haven't had the desire to build or fly anything in over a year. It's a phase and it will eventually wear off.
Hopefully you'll get excited about your car again soon. When you do please post some track video so we can all live vicariously through you.
