AWD 20vT Mk2 GTi.

Hello all,

And my Instagram is @syncroMk2

Here is my current build, 4wd running haldex, with a 20vT and a K04-064 for the time being eventually I want to build a 16vT with more than 500bhp.

Going for the sleeper look, so staying on 14” factory standard bottletops, absolutely standard to look at, maybe slightly lowered but not much.

As I can’t upload the pictures to here I’ll upload them to imgur and then post them across, here’s a couple I think I may have already.

So I got the car on the spit, and stripped the interior out.



Then turned it over and gave the underside a clean.



Some TFR later and we are clean!



Then went to town with the grinder.

Planning a 45l eBay jobby, there’s plenty of space behind the diff and Under the floor. Or I’ll get something a bit bigger made up, depends how I feel when the time comes really

That's not too bad, thought you'd have to go smaller with the rear cage.

In my old 20v (depending on how I drove it), I used to see about 290-310 miles to a tank.
I also had an effective volume of about 45 litres.

If you take a couple litres out for real world situations, you should see a range of about 280 miles.

No rear cage! It’s going to be a fully functional road car.

I used to get 350/400 miles on my old one with a 20v and that’s with the standard mk2 tank which is a bit bigger so, I don’t mind losing out a little but I don’t want to be filling up every 5 minutes! But this will be much quicker and heavier so it’ll use more for sure.

I ment the rear diff cage, you mentioned Haldex, so I figured you'd be putting the whole cradle in.

It's kinda odd, I used to have a standard mk2 tank, but always used to fill up 45-47 litres before it would click off.
Maybe I never ran it down as far as I could.

Oh I see, I’ve got a mk2 rear end, and I’m as we speak, making a bracket to hold the haldex diff

I’ll update properly but here’s a peak of what’s going on now!



And in!

Well here we go...

We built a spit:





So I bought complete mk2 Syncro running gear, with the plan of using that and upgrading it later, then it hit me that it’s stupid and just fit the correct stuff first time round.

So most of the early pictures are Mk2 Golf parts.

So I cut the tunnel out, and then put the prop in and measured my height.






Then started my filler sections. This was a boring job.



So I moved onto the back, diff mount made from Range Rover tow bar.



Then made a boot floor



Did some more tunnel, drilled new holes for the hand brake tubes



Managed to source a syncro console



Fitted a new battery tray



Then this happened...



And then this.. TT engine mounts, so I can have loads of space for mega big turbo!



Someone put a subframe in the way so i modified it and cut the mounts off.



Made some mounts and stuff to get it to the right height



Then mounted the diff once the engine was in place, using the TT prop.



Final welding,



Tapped and front support



Then in the car!



Then to move the prop to a more direct route, tidy up the shifter cables.



Tunnel sealed and ready to go.



This makes me a little bit happy!



And put some bits inside..



And almost finished my wiring now, at last!



And back on its own wheels!!!

Well.. I’ve done a bit more, sorted the holes I made for the engine mounts.



Then fixed the awful repair someone had done in the past. Thank you Brendon for the cut!



Welded in.



And both sides all sealed up.



To the untrained Golf eye, you’d never know!
 


Then onto my dog bone mount. Bolted up, marked and cut.



Tacked in and PAS rack fitted to see what’s going to touch. I’ll have to make new lines up but thats no problem.



Then welded up the bottom.



And that was it, primed up and put back together.

Man thats some amount of fabrication there  8)

Going to be a hoot to drive when its finished

Crumbs.. you have a lot of patience

Not a lot of patience needed tbh, I just cut where ever I want to cut and then weld it up 😂

I hope so! There certainly is, but it’s all fun and games and I won’t be building another one that’s for sure.
