My 68 irs baja

Offroad VW based vehicles have problems/insights all their own. Not to mention the knowledge gained in VW durability.

I wish it was done already but it will probably take a few years to build it how I want it. I'm thinking 10 grand should cover it.

Be careful. I've found that sometimes when I hold out to build things how I want them....they never get built. Doing it right the first time is important but be careful to not let it sidetrack the project. Until then...lots of pics please!!!

Get busy, have fun. Plan the build, really sit down and figure out where and how you plan on driving this and then figure driving it a little harder. As far as the money goes, yeah just don’t keep receipt, just don’t.

Here is the motor I picked up yesterday. Looks real clean. Had the ecu, harness, header, and transmission.

How many miles are on it? Is the wiring and ECU already set up to run stand alone or you have to get it modified? Looks like a real good start.

The guy I bought it from says low mileage. It was pulled out of the car as is so I need to get it converted. It looks real good. Still had the trans, motor mount, header and throttle cable on it. Next I will start pulling the rear suspension apart for a rebuild and prep.

Yeah, it looks nice and clean. I've seen some that get really ratty looking. Keep the updates, and pics, coming :D :D
