ABF Conversion Mk2 Golf Volkswagen

It's been sometime since our Mk2 Golf GTI has had a mention, well last week I recorded a short video explaining what the plan was with our Mk2 ABF conversion and how far we'd got. The video shows some footage of the car and explains what we've managed to do, and what we hope to start in the coming weeks.

We chose the ABF engine route as it's a strong engine with great specs and pretty much is identical in resemblance to the KR 16v, the only difference being a 1cm taller block.
