Bash's yellow caddy

Post by Bashbarnard »

So. I recently bought a dead caddy. It's been sat at work a while with a dead turbo and I got a good deal on it so thought it was time for a play. Originally an SDI that had been converted to a pd100. That promptly shit the turbo and it's day out back for months. Fast forward a bit and I seem to have found myself in a unique position of having a low milage bkd and hybrid turbo that's only covered 600 miles literally sold to me from less than 100 yards away from where this caddy sat. So you can see the plan. It'll be staying a 5 speed as I've got a gearbox out back off a Mk5 golf and the pd 100 had a solid flywheel conversion and brand new clutch before it crapped itself.

So long story short. Pulled it in Saturday afternoon. Cleared the back out of shelves and crap I'll never need. Pulled front end and engine out.

Things I have thatay work with this project is a Mk5 golf GTi EPAs rack. I've read that certain abs ECUs work with it. No idea what ones. But I've got hydraulic on there currently. If it was an easy conversion I'll get it done while everything's out. Also got Mk5 GTi hubs to go on to take bigger brakes. Coilevers and lowering stuff as well. Plus a spare set of golf wheels that I use for track days that I can throw on but I'm unsure if I want to do that as I'd quite like to keep the sleeper look.


So hey. I'm new here. What do you guys think. ImageImage

Pulled a gearbox out of a Mk5 golf tonight. Means I've got a gearbox to actually use now.

So went to put the engine in this evening. Went through sorting all the little bits like egr cooler delete. Swapping gearboxes, clutch's etc. Swapping my other ECU in. Then it came to the pas. The pas bracket doesn't fit off the old engine and the pas pump doesn't fit on the bkd bracket.

So. I have a Mk5 GTi e Pas rack that I think imma have to put on. I literally have no idea how wire it or if it'll work with my abs pump. So I've got a pic of what I think the numbers. Any ideas people? Image

Got her running tonight. Not together. But key turned and started. Ended up using half the alternator bracket and have the pas bracket to get the hydraulic steering to work.

Small update, managed to get the vac box wired in over the weekend so it now starts and runs with no more eml light on. So that side of the wiring is complete. Got the front end back on. Unfortunatly now the power steering line catchs on the new rad setup. So ive got to pull the subframe off and put the spare epas rack on i have. Howver this means wiring it all in which just adds another job to the list.

Fitted all the suspension i got over the past week. Lowering kit on the rear wasnt to bad to do. Fronts were a lot easier though. Ive got a set of hubs to upgrade the brakes as well at some point but i dont have them at the moment so stadard brakes it is i guess. Ive got the rear window glass ordered as well should be here this week. Has anyone ever replaced the rear windows? tips would be good. byt this is as it sits at the moment. I need to raise the front a little as its to low. Ill also stick it or the corner weighting stuff as well. See how well balanced i can get it. Might as well. Ill do the cambelt and water pump this week so i can finally run it up as its still got no coolent in it. basically been non stop on this project for the past few weeks in the evenings after work. Its finally getting there. Id ike to keep some standard looking wheels on it. Ive got a mk5 golf out back ill steal the steel rims off as theyre better condition. But i have a set of alloys with track tyres on as well so theres always other options.

Oh also sorted the pas issue. Manage to get the boost pipe, pas line and coolant line through the same spot. Also had to extened the rad fan wiring as its running the oem fan setup. So a few cooing lines had to be moved, bypassed and deleted depending on what ones.
