I thought is was time to start a build thread now that it is clear the car will be completed.
The project started as a 1975 1.8 in good condition. Here are the specs for the car.
- Audi 2.7tt v6 with Vems standalone ecu
- Boxster (Audi 012) 5-speed transmission
- F&R suspension from 993

This is how the car has sat for about 10 years

Looks like you have your work cut out for you. The build sounds cool though. I think Rohar up in WA is doing an Audi motor too. Congrats on doing something out of the norm. Love to see your progress pics as you go along (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beer.gif)

Yup sitting on two Audi motors now (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) The 2.7 is a nice choice assuming the rings are still good. People tend to run the snot out of them, but I don't blame them. What're you planning for half shafts?

edit: I just noticed this part "F&R suspension from 993" I have a feeling where this is gonna go. Good on ya!

That is beautiful. Two questions: Why is your exhaust pipe sticking out where the front bumper should be? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif) How do you expect to live through the shake down?

I guess my pics are to large so I will make multiple posts. These will be some of the underside of the car.

Almost ready to drive. Waiting on the calipers to get back from the powder coater and some final programing of the ecu. Seems strange to see it as a whole car after 12 years of pieces in boxes.
The builder has already had it running but I have not heard it yet. I can't wait to hear it.

rohar- the half shafts are boxster, no mods required

If anyone local wants to stop in for a peek let me know.

Any concern for the plastic tail light buckets right next to the exhaust?

We will be addressing any heat issues like the proximity of the plastic tail lights as we complete the car.
I believe that it is going to be around 325hp on pump gas.
The reason that I waited so long to start the thread is that I wanted to be sure that the car was actually going to be completed.
I will keep updating progress.
Thanks for the possitive comments,
Chris
