Might try to fit different drysump tank, which i'd like to fit near the transaxle outside of cabin. Only problem is that there will be a 5 bar shock tower support, so i designed a slim one..



Also found nice steering wheel, not too much tuning style, or too retro

Hi Alex, did you get the 091 5-speed mounted? I'm looking at a G50 or 091 5-speed, and was curious how your install turned out.

Thanks!

I sold the steeringwheel, it was not the OMP wheel what i wanted (it was made in china), not as nice as black OMP wheels are usually. I just recently ordered JPM Wasp stage 2 exhaust (220-290hp) and Raptor 282@0.050" cam with changed LC, both recommended by Johannes

I will change JPM lifters to Udo Becker lightweight tool steel lifters what i have already, also a nice gesture from Udo, that he wants to change this older set of lifters to a newer batch of lifters, eliminating all worries about heattreating etc

But we havent yet installed the transaxle, car is not in my garage, only 40% of parts are at the moment. I have all the berg mounts for 091, but it pan and body might need modifications. At same time we check the fit of 5-bar shock tower support.

Sheetmetalworks almost done, we are now fitting the rollcage. Door, seatbelt and baars to the mendeola and rear will be added. Doorbaar will be littlebit lower than before, because car will be streetcar and trackdaycar.

Nice work Alex! I'm building an 002 transmission for my car, but missed the last 5-speed kit from Berg. Interested to see how you mount yours, as i have the the two rubber mounts (641E/643E) that center the cv joints, instead of the engine.

I dont know what driveshafts will fit, but thinking to use 944 turbo ones.
Yeah, i wanted the engine to be at center, and at some point i am also going to get fabricated a new 911 style front mount, one that doesnt need front rubbers like berg one. Demontweeks sells machianable hard black urethane washers at size 75x25x32, sounds big enough for custom made mount.

Very cool. I should have time over the next month or so, to start working on my install/mounts. I'm not very happy with the Berg front mount, so keep me posted on yours.

Thanks!

Sheetmetal work has been a little slow at start, but now were are doing fine, but as usual, i suspect that getting it painted may take 3-5 weeks.

I sanded half of the roof and sides, a lot less now old paint left, ugh

Few days ago we test fitted the seat, fits well and good position with prototype seat frame, i might get eventually a shorter one. Otherwise Recaro seat is tight fit at beetle, sidebars need one bend at least. I insisted to put sidebar front end to low enough, because i am not building a full racecar.

We did put some support from main hoop to rear torsionbar tubes, straight trough hot air vent holes

Probably at tomorrow we fit the transaxle and 5 bar käfer cup brace.

Would anybody recommend tube / brace from rollgage to mendeola suspension frame to get extra protection at side / front collision?

Now fits the seat with doorbars, and doors can be actually closed. Seats are quite wide, so doorbars had to be bent from two locations. Testfitting rear coilovers..

So far here we are, 99% of sheetmetal work done, and yes, we did put plastic body filler, but only a thin layer, because lines were so straight at repaired places. Unfortunately, i have to postpone painting to next year when budget allows.
