So much want! Nice work JR. Bonus points if the fake exhaust could be used as a mounting point for a quick attach wheelie bar!

LOL speaking of Wheelie, I'm assuming you tried it already? Did it pull the tires?

I've got a 17yr old son that's been bitten by the custom automotive fab work and I've been showing him your progress and he's been amazed with the entire project and said that it's cool enough as is that he'd buy it in a heartbeat if'n he wasn't a broke ass teenager.

But my favorite part is his jaw dropping when I told him that your day job was as a french horn player, he couldn't believe that this wasn't the work of a high dollar custom fab shop with several guys and lots of expensive gadgets making this beast.

You've definitely opened his eyes to what I've been telling him, it's the knowledge of the people in the craft that gets passed down that makes work like this possible without having $$$$$$ tied up in new fancy ass machinery, and his Grand-dad that's a machinist has also been telling him to not be afraid to go to the area shops and ask about being a shop bitch/apprentice that wants to learn the skills and is willing to put in the blood and sweat.

so you think if the exhaust wasn't hitting the pavement it would be more tolerable?

what about a slip on diverter to push the exit out the back under the apron. put it on if you're driving it a ways, leave it off for shows and around town.

I know on my RZR turning the exhaust exit straight back definitely reduced the noise for the driver and passenger. My buddies say its louder when following though. I can only imagine that the effect on asphalt would be even more exaggerated than sand.

I'm charging up the camera. Hopefully get some in-car video tomorrow.

It's been a constant barrage of chasing little stuff that's not working or leaking.
I think I have all the leaks fixed now. Had to lift the front end an inch so the tires don't rub on the fenders.
Current problem is the fans don't come on. It takes a while for 4 gallons of coolant to get hot enough to need them but after some hot laps and just letting it sit and idle, the temp goes up where the fans should be coming on.
Plugging in the test connectors reveals that they indeed work. The Access Port says they should be on when it's hot enough. So, I don't know, I just got to sort through it.
It's nice to pay someone to do the main harness as I have someone to refer to when there is a problem.

I'm ignorant of the access port, but is there software that you can use to trigger activations?

About the size of a phone, it's an expensive device that plugs in to the ECU.
There's over 100 power train perimeters that can be displayed and monitored.
It's also used for down loading engine management maps and trouble shooting engine codes.

Yimisport sent me a basic map to download to the AP. Then the AP is connected to the ECU to download the map to the car. Otherwise, I couldn't even start it.

As far as reprogramming the ECU, I can't do it but a tuner can with a laptop and software.

Nice to hear. I think VWs are great for teens to get their hands dirty and learn. That's how I started. They are cheap and light weight. You and a buddy can lift the motor out and set it on a milk crate. Easy to modify.

This was me with my Baja Bug in 1979 learning how to modify.

I haven't hammered it as I don't want to break it yet. With the stock tune, it's not going to pull the wheels up. It will get there though.

And cheap. We water locked a 1600 bus motor near La Paz on a surfing trip, and I think it cost us $170 to get a replacement longblock installed, circa 1983.

Claude's Buggies was about 10 miles from my house growing up, and they were always using some kid's car as a test bed. Bugs were pretty big at my school. Slammed or Baja, there were more than a couple 2180's.

What temps are you seeing? I think low speed is supposed to come in at 205.

That's what I read too. It gets 210 and the AP says fan number 1 is on but it isn't. Jumping the test circuit turns both fans on (they alternate back and forth), so they are functional and wired correctly ( I think). Maybe the ECU thinks it's turning the fan on but a relay is not letting it. I just got to dig into it some more.

The fan system is a little bit odd. I believe they run both fans in series for low speed and then separate them for high.

I'm going to hazard a guess and say that JR has a fuckton of fancy ass machinery in his shop to make dreams like this come true.

^^ I'll give you a hint: It happened after an aggressive stop from about 80 mph.
After about 2 minutes, the noise went away.
Can you guess?
