Glad to see this forum added! This is Ryan, owner of Thompson Racing Fabrication. I just thought I'd share with you all a 2.0 Mirage I recently built for a customer, Erik K. The guide for our build was that if any parts were not specifically built for our set up, a custom part would be fabricated. That included all the motor and trans mounts (Car has 97 TSI FWD trans), radiator (in condensor possition), intercooler, all pumbing, seat mounts (EVO 8 seats), etc. So far the cars best time is 11.90 @ 116mph. It's still FWD, and gets 30MPG!
The noteworthy components:
Haltech E6K, and fully custom wireing harness throughout. FP3052 turbo. Fully stock motor (for now). Curb weight with 10 point cage: 2,400lbs.
I'm working on getting a hosting site set up so I can post pictures directly, but for now they'll have to be viewed at this link:
