Quote from: "StuC"Well done for making a start. Getting some smaller wins under the belt should help encourage you. Have you got a list of jobs?
Quote from: "secla"What v8 you going for ? 4.2 Audi would be my choice
Quote from: "rich_p"Very nice! A thread with V8 in the title is sureto attract attention. I was actually reminded of the crazy MK1 Paul Woods has built. No small task by any stretch.How is it likely to sit within the body of the MK3? If I recall there was a fair amount of chopping and re-fabricating involved when Paul made his MK1.Good luck with it! Little bits at a time and you'll soon have a mental V8 Roadster. Could it even be a first?
Quote from: "Escy"I'll keep an eye on this. On the Porsche Boxsters the driveshafts were angled forwards quite a bit so having the diff output flanges inline with the hubs isn't strictly necessary. I remember someone attempted a V8 swap years back on a Mk3. The biggest hurdle seems to be the rear cross member, the gearbox wants to sit right in the middle.
Quote from: "jvanzyl"Great photos man- I'm interested to see which Jack points you used? Mine is about to be put up for a long time...
Quote from: "lamcote"That YouTube video of the cross member is a great solution for that project, but will you have space for that big top element of the cross member (shown at 6:38 in the video)? Your engine looks like it takes up all that space.
Quote from: "jvanzyl"I call second dibs!!!It is a zero right?Thanks for posting the pics- I didn't realise you could put a Jack on the front bit there...
