Just done the G60 conversion, fired up for the first time yesturday, engine been sitting doing nothing for 14 months, would of started first time if the coil lead was connected lol, i used a modified nissan pulsar intercooler as its small enough so i can fit my twin headlamps :D if anyone want me to post some pics of the intercooler mods let me know.. Still got stuff to do like making brackets for the cooler and rad and make the bay a bit neater.

Missed the first start of the car but i managed to get the second start, the exhaust is not connected with the system yet G60 Mk1

I used a gearbox off a mk2 carbed scirocco.
Top end was around 130mph which is plenty in a mk1 :lol:

I've been getting lots of emails about making looms.
I have now started to make these again in my spare time.

Price is 100 and you supply both looms,In return you get a loom made up from both looms which is plug and play all you need to do is connect 1 wire to an ignition live for the ecu and that's it.Turnaround is normally 2 weeks depending on how many I have at any one time.

evening all! :)

first post!

ime currently doing this conversion for a friend, i notice you say about swapping the flywheel and clutch, why is this necessary? surely if you use the g60 box then this isnt a problem?

No but then you need to buy new gearbox mounts and fit shifter cables as well so another 200 bill
