VEHICLE STORY

This is my 2004 VW Golf GTI. She was purchased second hand to give me the ability to save a few bucks in fuel driving back and forth from school. She’s absolutely not the prettiest on the outside nor on the inside. The previous owner slacked heavily on maintenance and upkeep that when I picked the worn girl up she was suffering. My work so far has included new suspension, bushings, control arms, etc. timing and a tune up was also done. Recently flash tuned the ecu to better use the current mods. Currently waiting are 550cc injectors, f23 frankenturbo, and supporting mods to make over 300whp. She is slowly coming back to the glory once given to her from VW. Hopefully soon she’ll be ready enough to make a healthy trip to willow springs for an open track day. As of now I’ll continue to work the little magic I have to keep trucking forward with repairs and modifications.
