I love reading readers rides so thought it only fair to share. I have kept the car semi low key as ive tryed hard to make it abit different from the norm. I managed to get to VWNW and Edition38 show and shine. It shocked me the attention it got to be honest. It left many people scratching there heads, which was just what I wanted haha. Thanks to all the people that showed love at shows it made all the hours and late nights worth while.

For a full feature / story on the rocco. Thanks Harris - http://grandnostalgic.com/2011/09/mk1-scirocco-turbo/

My mate Scho took these awesome pictures for me. Thanks again dude!

It was a full G40 head and bottom end but after running it about for a week or so there was something just not right. It was vibrating the car like mad, the exhaust got louder and louder as the car got slower and slower. It started running on 3 cylinders, this was due to one of the plugs being covered in oil. So 2 days before edition show and shine I cut my loses and just bolted all the turbo bits to a spare Mk1 1.3 to get to edition.

 

The clutch slips the moment it comes on boost, so you kinda have to ease it on boost. :lol: Im not really too bothered about this engine if it goes pop it goes pop :lol: .. I will rebuild the G40 bottom end and fit a soild lifter head over the winter as I love how old skool and original the engine looks at the minute. :wub:

 

With the correct timing and fueling a G40 should be pretty bomb proof.. Touch wood :lol:

 

 

R5gtt parts? Been wanting to do that to a 1272 for ages! AWESOME!

 

Yes a 5 turbo Solex carb and a K-tec T2/T25 Garrett turbo
