Thought the TT rack was 16.9? I know some guys have milled down the rack though

The improved roll center should be nice though. Are you getting new axles seeing as the track width is now wider?

Could be the MK3, that was the only technical spec doc i could find. Doubt the steering would change between MK2/3 though.

Will be eventually be picking up TT axles, using MKVs to get it moving for now

Sensor wiring run through the pass through. Have gauge sensors (EGT, fuel pressure, oil pressure) and all oxygen sensor wiring (primary, secondary, AEM) running through it. Had to make new extension harnesses for the primary and secondary oxygen sensors to be able to run inside the car. Will probably shield the wiring even though having the wastegate dump wrapped should be enough protection. Made a small aluminum bracket for the rear sensor plugs. Steering rack wiring is in the corrugated loom

Damn man, project is coming along!! Looking great brother! One of these days when the grey car gets swapped over to dedicated track duty as well, I want to pull the white one completely apart and just clean up/make everything shiny new again.

Tapped and plugged the oil feed hole for the vacuum pump in the HPFP housing. Since i deleted the vacuum pump, the hole needs plugged or the chain tensioner and N205 will not have enough oil pressure to operate correctly. Used an 8-32 threaded insert

I wanted something a little less permanent. I did loctite it in though and the allen key to install/remove is pretty small and wimpy. I have a couple spares if it wont come out
