STi powered Typ4 in the works...

Hello GermanLooker

Wally asked me to write something about my project.
I want to fulfill this command, upps, this request.

As I have already said here https://www.germanlook.net/forums/sh...postcount=1497 and next,
my progress is very, very slow.

Now, only a little Teaser

I hope it fits under the lid.
But in any case, I have to cut off the intake manifold.
We will see.

There are no pictures now.
Everything is still original but disassembled and must be welded here and there a little bit.

Now I first adjust the engine and transmission, so I can build the brackets.
Then I want to build the brakes, then edit the body.

Very cool!

(Psst: I like it so much as I am slowly preparing a rad build with a watercooled (6) unit into an early notch myself)

In the type 3’s variant world, the only way to retain the stock engine hatch height would be to make a custom inlet maifold to reduce the height of the engine.

With my notchback it’s more like a Karmann Ghia now with the rear boot/trunk area as the engine bay. Fare play not only for keeping a Type 4 on the road but the STI transplant also.... hats off to you sir!
