Nice write-up, sleeper! You covered most everything. Good job! Pardon my ignorance, I've been away for awhile, but did I notice a turbo motor in there?! Did you go for the gusto and turbo that beast?! If so, nice move!!!

Yeah, she's been turbo'ed since last september when you disapered.

She runs great other than a little miss and a high idle. Plan on driving her to school tomorrow to eat a friends SRT4 (already had some fun with him tonight lol)

pedals are indefinatley the hardest part of the swap but after you do it once you can do it again in half the time and... thats why a bought a stick car right off the bat

so i just bought my T5 and almost everything required from an 86 SVO. the only parts im looking for now is the clutch pedal assembly and upper and lower shifter boot and bezel.

and i have a few questions. like will the VSS and gear out of my A4LD fit.work in the T5?

You can find shifter boots/bezels here too

The VSS and gear will work, however, you will have to grind down the end of the shaft of the speedo gear about 1/4 inch.

thanks for the link, but thats way too pricey for my taste. im gonna dig around at some yards tomorrow. and i went ahead and ordered a new gear for the VSS.
