Also decided that it was time to go stock bodykit while the car is off road. Ive never been a fan of fibreglass kits.

Things have been slow engine wise but the rest of the car is coming along well. My billet centre casing for my v160 has been made.

Nice build you got going here.

Who makes this center casing or is it one off? Only asking because I've noticed an influx of folks cracking their cases lately for some reason lol.

The car is looking so nice! I'm a sucker for black cars, and I'm wondering if I'll end up in a black MKIV too. 🙂

Awesome build

Any idea which parts exactly albins is making? I think they manufactured the input shaft and countershaft for jacks a few years ago. Curious if they are making anything else. Obviously the center case too.

Im getting a full rebuild done by Neat gearboxes who Albins recommend for the rebuilds. If my gears are not damaged ill be putting in new carbon synchros, billet input shaft, billet selector fork and getting the gears coated.

oh wow, okay. Are their prices reasonable? I'm curious what they'll do if you need a gear? does albins make the gears now? What about the hub sliders?

Its going to cost me inbetween 6-10 thousand dollars (au). As far as i know they produce 2nd and 5th gear currently. They plan on reproducing all gears in 2022. Im not sure about the hub sliders.
