I have had a '87 Scirocco for 3 years now. 5 speed 16v. Came to me with lotsa mods, fixed a few things myself to make it street legal/reliable/pass inspection. Was a show/race car before I owned it. Don't know alot about VW's in general, was just alotta fun to have/drive and now I possibly wanna sell it and put all my time into my new car.
(All other pics after description)
CAME TO ME WITH--
-Rebuilt Engine (approx. 40k miles now, about 200k on car itself)
-Euro front bumper, Euro headlights
-Tokico race suspension, lowered 3", 17" Enkei w/ Nankang treads(no fender rubbing)
-Drilled front BIG rotors, discs all around, steel braided brake lines
-1" wider fender flares and sideskirts
-K&N filter (stock intake)
-Underdrive pulley instead of A/C unit
-Autotech camshaft, aftermaket camgear(not sure brand)
-Short throw shifter
-White gauges w/ green backlight & red needles
-Center console gauge cluster (voltage, temp, bar)
-POWER side mirrors
-Front strut tower brace, rear strut bar(both neuspeed), rear sway bar(under car)
-FULL Energy brand bushing kit for all suspension/strut/sway parts.
-Also no rear seats, hole in custom plywood/carpeted rear floor for sub and amp mount on rear wall under hatch lift.
WHAT I DID/HAD DONE--
-New wiring harness
-Fuel filter & external fuel pump
-Borla catback/high flow cat.(sounds crazy)
-Very little rust on body, no rot, barely anything underside of car
-Driver side headlight isn't fully secured/sits too low
-Manual crank sunroof (tracks & gasket need replaced-small leak=moist headliner, no drips tho)
-E-Brake needs adjusted/or new cable
-Interior stripped, no insulation/sound deadening in rear. No speakers, headunit, sub, or amp, but all wires still where they need to be (sold the sound system + speakers awhile back)
-No rear seats. 1 racing seat, not fully bolted down, non-adjustable
-Transmission from an 8v, pulls 75 in 3rd, and VERY tall 5th gear
-One(1) rad hose leaks
-Needs new battery
-Hates starting in the cold
-Inspection expired Sept. '08
I bought it for 3k. Most mods were done approx. year 2000. The car resides 15 mins from City of Pittsburgh. Thanks in advance --Mike Ask me anything I'll tell you or find out if I don't know.
