Flashback Friday... man I miss that 'ol Cabriolet! That was one sweet handling car and it had some crazy torque. SCCA, Drag Racing, Hillclimbs... I put it through hell and it took it! #flashbackfriday #volkswagen #cabriolet #mk2   #vdub #vw #vwcabriolet #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
Rainy night, already wet so why not get started on that Refurbishing that Carbon Fiber Wing with a little wet sanding. Looking soooooo much better already. Going to pick up another 1500 sandpaper sponge tomorrow to finish it up. The sandpaper was so worn out it was hanging off the sponge. Calling it the night. • • • #carbonfiberspoiler #carbonfiberwing #carbonfiber #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2   #vdub #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy

Dash support mounts evicted! Changed my mind about the minimalist dash. Not going to do a dash at all now. Looks good as it is. Just going to paint it and mount the gauges right to the steering column support and upper firewall. Put a 5" Autometer Speedometer and Tach w/shift light on the steering column support. Mount four 2 1/2" Autometer Gauges to the right angled towards me. • • • #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2   #vdub #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
Ditched the rear bumper, removed the exhaust and trimmed the bottom to fit a massive rear diffuser. @redskinsproud made up a mock diffuser out of HVAC duct so we can get an idea of the size I needed to fit right and get the look I'm going for. Have some more trimming to do but it's getting there! • • • #reardiffuser #diffuser #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2   #vdub #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
Not much left of the interior wiring. Just need to figure out which ones go where because I want to leave the wires for the power windows in place. Why? Well I really don't want to hunt for new door panels and manual crank window assemblies for this old bastard. Unless I go to sheet metal door panels... hmmm.. • • • #ihatewiring #saynotoelecrical #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2   #vdub #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
So... All the wires under the hood have been evicted... and I didn't shoot myself in the face. • • • #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2   #vdub #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
Opening the jets on the R1 Carbs at Ronnie Hall Racing. We were told by Bogg Brothers that 170 or 180 jets would work well, so we split the difference at 175. Should have the carbs ready to rock tomorrow. I need to get on the fuel cell. I didn't think we'd have the carbs tuned this quick! ***** #byecis #cissucks #bikecarbs #boggbrothers #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2   #vdub #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
It's coming together! All this sexiness is making we want to paint the block to make it look better. The Bogg Bother Intake, Waterneck and @iabedindustries horizontal oil filter housing looks SICK! Now to work on the alternator mount and the dipstick. ***** #byecis #cissucks #bikecarbs #boggbrothers #iabedindustries #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2   #vdub #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
@iabedindustries don't play! Got my Oil Filter Housing super fast and can't wait to get home to throw it on. I still need the Mocal Sandwhich Adapter before we can button it all up but don't think I'm not gonna mock it up to see it! ***** #iabedindustries #oilfilterhousing #oilcooler #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2   #vdub #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
I can always count of scoring some wicked deals at @sriperformance ! Got this oil cooler and lines for the Scirocco. Will go perfect with the @iabedindustries Oil Filter Housing and Mocal Sandwhich Plate Adapter. ***** #oilcooler #fluidyne #mocal #iabedindustries #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2   #vdub #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
The Bogg Brothers Bike Carb Intake and Water Neck is a perfect fit. Sent the pictures to @iabedindustries to confirm that their Billet Oil Filter Housing will work and it's a go! ***** #byecis #cissucks #bikecarbs #boggbrothers #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2 #vdub #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
Got it cleaned up! Removed all the things I wanted to tonight, mocked up the Bogg Brothers Intake Manifold and Water Neck. Time to shoot some pictures over to @iabedindustries and a couple parts in the works. ***** #byecis #cissucks #bikecarbs #boggbrothers #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2 #vdub #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
Tonight were going to try to evict these parts. Then in the next few days I can mock up the Bogg Brothers Intake Manifold and Water Neck so @iabedindustries can work on some goodies for us. They have a wicked oil filter/breather combo housing I'm going to use. Just need to know where the AN fittings for the oil cooler lines need to go. ***** #byecis #cissucks #bikecarbs #boggbrothers #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2 #vdub #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
CIS be GONE! Just have to pull the fuel lines and tank now. I'm not too confident in yanking out wires quite yet. Have to do some research. I don't think it needs many wires at all now that it will be carburated but I don't want to pull anything needed for ignition. ***** #byecis #cissucks #bikecarbs #boggbrothers #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2 #vdub #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
Pulled the Scirocco in the shop, time to start striping off all this CIS junk! I mean the entire thing. From intake manifold to gas tank... It's all being evicted! ***** #byecis #cissucks #bikecarbs #boggbrothers #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2 #vdub #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #vwarmy
Finally have all the important pieces to convert the Scirocco to bike carbs! Bogg Brothers Custom Carb Intake, R1 Carbs, external fuel pump and Fuel Cell. Just need some fuel lines and that should be it! ***** #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2 #mk2scirocco #vdub #vdublife #vdubnation #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #vwarmy
Took the Scirocco out for it's last spin before I start to rip out the CIS Fuel System. I have the carb intake and working on getting the last pieces to get it screaming down the road again! ***** #boggbrothers #bikecarbs #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2 #mk2scirocco #vdub #vdublife #vdubnation #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner

They have arrived! Bogg Brothers did an awesome job on my new Bike Carb intake and new water neck flange. Excited to get this set up on the Scirocco. Can't happen soon enough. Just a few more parts to collect... ***** #boggbrothers #bikecarbs #customintake #custominlet #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2 #mk2scirocco #vdub #vdublife #vdubnation #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #europeanstyle #vwarmy
3rd break light... EVICTED. Rear Wiper... EVICTED Bobo spoiler... getting evicted as we speak! ***** #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2 #mk2scirocco #vdub #vdublife #vdubnation #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #europeanstyle
Day 1 in the wild... have another set of wheels with new tires for it but I need the alignment done first. Gettin there! ***** #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2 #mk2scirocco #vdub #vdublife #vdubnation #vw #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #europeanstyle #vwarmy
Out in the wild! Got a tag for it this morning. Still a work in progress but good to be able to drive it around... legally! ***** #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2 #mk2scirocco #vdub #vdublife #vdubnation #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #europeanstyle
I really think I'm going to keep the carpeted shelves and make a Carbon Fiber panel to set on them. Just a simple rectangle panel will work great! ***** #carbonfiber #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2 #mk2scirocco #vdub #vdublife #vdubnation #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #europeanstyle
Pulled the last pieces of interior from the rear of the car. Next up, roll cage and carbon fiber panels! ***** #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2 #mk2scirocco #vdub #vdublife #vdubnation #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #europeanstyle
It's ALIVE! A little rough and we have a exhaust leak. Nothing a header and some drive time won't fix! **** #itsalive #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2 #mk2scirocco #vdub #vdublife #vdubnation #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #europeanstyle
After a couple months of tinkering I finally dropped the Scirocco on the ground this afternoon! Need to adjust the coilovers a little, fill it with coolant and fuel. Hopefully we'll fire it up in the next day or 2. Forgot to get antifreeze on my last parts store run. ***** #finallyoffjackstands #ontheground #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2 #mk2scirocco #vdub #vdublife #vdubnation #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #europeanstyle
The cold air intake came out great! It's going to work perfectly. I pulled the paper filter out and started by using a 2 1/2" to 3" coupler attached a 3" 90° Elbow. Then used a 3" to 3" coupler and a 3" diameter 6" Long Straight Tube to finish up the intake tube. Slapped on a cone air filter and we're rockin!. It hung just a little into the wheel well but with a strap I was able to pull it towards the radiator support and keep it out of the wheel well area. ***** #coldairintake #intake #cis #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2 #mk2scirocco #vdub #vdublife #vdubnation #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #europeanstyle
Collected some pieces to make a cold air intake for the Scirocco. If my measurements are right we should be able to remove the paper filter, attach the intake tube from the CIS air box to grab air from just under the front bumper, in front of the wheel well. We'll see if I measure it right! ***** #coldairintake #intake #cis #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2 #mk2scirocco #vdub #vdublife #vdubnation #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #europeanstyle
Took a couple hours and slipped out back while Beth slept. Jumped back on the Scirocco and wrapped up the Battery Relocation Kit! Removed the back seat, spare tire and a few other interior pieces. Mounted the battery in the spare tire hole and grounded out the battery in the seat belt mount. It's reinforced in the chassis so it will work perfect. Thinking about how I'm going to cover the rear compartment now that the rear seat and all has been evicted. ***** #batteryrelocation #evictedbattery #mrgasket #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2 #mk2scirocco #vdub #vdublife #vdubnation #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #europeanstyle #vwarmy
Didn't make it to #europeanexperience this year but hopefully next year we'll be cruising down the Scirocco with a completely different look!

This power distribution block I picked up at Sound DNA in Albemarle looks super clean! Battery relocation almost done.

The @toywagen 16V Billet AC Delete Alternator Pulley is nice! Hate they don't make these anymore! If you didn't scoop one up you missed out. ***** #toywagen #acdelete #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2 #mk2scirocco #vdub #vdublife #vdubnation #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #europeanstyle #vwarmy
AC Delete done! Cleaned it up a bunch under the hood. I may or may not have gotten a little carried away on the interior portion of the project... lol! ***** #toywagen #acdelete #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2 #mk2scirocco #vdub #vdublife #vdubnation #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #europeanstyle #vwarmy
Tonight I'm installing the @toywagen AC Delete Billet Alternator pulley, removing all the AC components and if I have time... the battery relocation kit! ***** #toywagen #acdelete #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2 #mk2scirocco #vdub #vdublife #vdubnation #vw #vwscirocco #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #europeanstyle #vwarmy
Axles, Brakes & Suspension finished... for now. Have a few other improvements in mind but we'll tackle those down the road. Going to work on installing the @toywagen Billet AC Delete Pulley tonight and removing all the AC components. ***** #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk1 #mk2 #mk2scirocco #vdub #vdublife #vdubnation #vw #vwscirocco #crossdrilled #rokkor #coilovers #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #europeanstyle #vwarmy
Throwback Thursday with the 'ol VW Cabriolet. To think this project all started when I borrowed this car from my sister to go get parts for my '69 Camaro and got laughed at from a couple Honda fan boys. After out driving them through some windy roads in a slightly slower car, I wanted more. Back then I was a muscle car fan but really had a blast burning through turns in that oversized go cart. I later got it from her and it got crazy. Dropped a 2.0li bottom end with a 1.8li Eurospec Cylinder Head, low temp thermostat, Neuspeed wires, Neuspeed Clutch, 9A close ratio transmisson, ABD short shifter, custom made header attached to a 2.5" custom full exhaust. Went with Eibach suspension and Everything MOMO... MOMO Arrow wheels, Steering wheel, Pedals, etc. I lightened it up a few hundred pounds by removing everything not needed. Who needs AC in a convertible anyway? Ditched the power steering for manual too. It turned out to be a cool little beast. Surprised the masses when it took 2nd Place in the Pure Street Class at Mooresville Dragstrip. When I wasn't on the Dragstrip or hitting the curves out in the sticks, I was terrorizing the streets of Charlotte. Many tuners got their feelings hurt with that little car. ***** #tbt #throwbackthursday #volkswagen #vwcabriolet #cabriolet #mk2 #mk2cabriolet #vdub #vdublife #vdubnation #vw #crossdrilled #eibach #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #europeanstyle #vwarmy
The rear end is ALMOST done. The passenger side is finished, the driver side caliper decided it didn't want to be a team player. Piston is frozen.

That wraps up the front. Big difference! I'm happy with the way it turned out. Got the rear brakes disassembled last night and painted too. I'll throw it back together tonight. ***** #volkswagen #s2 #scirocco #mk2 #mk2scirocco #vdub #vdublife #vdubnation #vw #vwscirocco #crossdrilled #rokkor #coilovers #wickedwater #vwdragracing #vwrally #turnkiller #eurotuner #eurosport #europeanstyle
Took out the Vogtland Springs and ordered some ROKKOR Coil Overs. I've been told I'll be in for a beating but I'm excited to get them completely installed. Fronts are in, tonight I'll be wrapping up the rears.

One side done. The '87 S2 is getting there. New axles, suspension, crossed drilled rotors, brakes and painted the calipers as well as the dust shields.
