Ashmond Mk4 Golf 1.4e To 1.8T KO4 Stage 2 Rebuild, 2nd Time Round - PART 1
Here is a video I made whilst bored on the train of my mk4 golf after we
put the second 1.8T engine after the first one went due to sucking up a
load of water and destroying engine. I toyed with the idea of breaking or
selling the car but just couldnt and I am happy I held out and went
travelling during the recession and weathered the storm. This time we have
taken more time and made sure everything is 100% - please note this is not
the finished article as there is a blow in the Exhaust hence the sound. Just a quick vid to
show she is rolling again. This time with a stage 2 s3 remap.
Music is; Grafix - Rebuild
EDIT - New video on road all running beautifully Sept '12:
