Default audi 1.8 20vt powerd mini van

hi guys ive been a member on this forum a while now but never posted anything just had a look around every now and again
hopfully this should be a good one
i have always been into my old vws ie mk1 golfs until i came across a old mini van shell for 600quid
it was abit of a basket case when i got it but i have done most of the welding on the shell now and its coming along nice
i had a 1.8 v5 turbo out or a audi that i had im my mk1 golf and after looking on here i realised that theres not many been done so i desided to have a go
i got hold of a old front subframe and cracked on with the plasma and pipe bender and ended up with this

mini 3.jpg

the plan was to put it in a tsanderd length round nose but i will have to extend it by 1 inch
the subframe is about done just need to mount the bottom arms and tie bars

Really like that subframe!
Engine fits there quite nicely, compact unit for what it is.
Welcome to the forum, will be keeping an eye on this one.
Plenty of pics and updates please!

Talking

cheers pal its very tight i no haha i had to cut a small square out of the passenger floor pan to get the diff housing in so now i will have to move the steering rack down a few inch
also to get the turbo in i got a stainless turbo manifold off ebay which the turbo should mount under it and cut it off at the plate that bolts to the engine and flipped it then welded it back on now i can top mount the turbo and not have to mess around with the bulk head

manifold one.jpg
i was going to run the standerd ko3 turbo thats fitted to the engine but came across a subrau wrx turbo which is alot bigger to ger it to clear the rocker cover i will need to make a spacer anyway so just going to put a flange on the top to take the scooby turbo
im running a mk4 golf 1.9tdi gear box for longer gear ratio and engine should be around 300bhp
i got a inlet manifold onn a audi tt bam engine which has the throttle body at the other end and shortend the intake pipes by 3 inch and had it tigd back up now it fits great in the mini front end also now i cam mount my intercooler on top of the gear box and the pipe work will be a peace of cake 90 off turbo and straght off throttle body into intercooler with a nice big dump valve along the way

Thats because a V5 is a confused little engine.

Significant size difference between the 2 blowers.
Which Subaru turbo is it? TD0?

I assume the size difference is because the Subaru is designed to output 270 odd as standard, while the VW KO3 is 150 odd

Very nice build and really something different. But where are you going to put the radiator?
