sorting out a couple of issues. First, not getting a complete clutch release so unable to get into gear when running. Second, #6 cylinder isn’t firing, good spark, maybe a fuel issue. i am going to try a longer pushrod for the clutch slave. Tired of it on jack stands so I dropped back on the ground and re-installed the fender flares to cheer me up

Sometimes you need to do things out of order to up the stoke on the project. Looks mean with the flares!

Sure trying! Pulled it out of the garage to wash dust and crap off it and Jim’s 3.0 gtv6 before I polish the paint on his car. just waiting on brake booster rebuild and it goes home. Verde motor with 164s pistons and cams, really runs good! Was off the road with no motor since 93 or 94

Not long ago I've had a Besic 2.5L V6 with 164S cams sitting in my garage. The idea was to swap it into my S3 with 40IDFs. Gave up after realizing I was too deep into the Nord rabbit hole to try something that grand, and I have another project to chew through in the form of my brother's Verde.

Your spider looks exactly as I envisioned mine would with a V6 and IDFs punching a hole through the hood and big flares. Great job! Have you thought of putting a clear bubble on the hood to clearance the carbs, sorta like a Ferrari 246S?

Cheers,
--André

Thanks! No clear hood bubble, at least for now with the taller air filters. Just gonna give them clean air for now and hope to have it all ready and repainted in time for the National convention in Colorado next year
