~~~~~ Project X ~~~~~~

the one and only

Project X is the secret codename for my own Scirocco project. It's a simple formula: take a stock Scirocco II and start modifying it and make it bad-assed for as little money as possible. Read on...

I have divided the stages of the project in sections. Click on a picture or heading to go to the details page of each phase.

     
     
the different phases
     
  Phase 1 - how I bought the car
The car as I bought it in September of 2001. The Scirocco had already seen more than 200,000 km's, but was well cared for. She was almost completely standard, that's the best way to start a project.



  Phase 2 - the first steps to a real Volkswagen
The car as I bought it in September of 2001. The Scirocco had already seen more than 200,000 km's, but was well cared for. She was almost completely standard, that's the best way to start a project.



  Phase 3- Engine and transmission transplant
After having tried just about everything to get the standard 1800 carb engine to run nicely, I came to the conclusion that the carb was a piece of crap. All of those automatic choke carbs on 1600 & 1800 VW engines suck. So I started looking for a replacement Weber or whatever to get the engine to run properly.

My bro then suggested to swap the entire engine for a GTI unit with fuel injection... read all about it right here.



  Phase 4- Wheels, wheels, wheels
Sometimes I just can't seem to make up my mind. Such is the case with which wheels to put under Project X.
