Supercharged with NOS this thing is a heavy hitter on the streets. Took some pictures for an article I'm writing up on a local blog. Let me know what you think.

I like #3 the most, and #2 second most. What a little sleeper though lol, nice shots.

Jetta's make the best sleepers. I agree with possible seeing a couple of colour shots, but keep #3 the way it is. That comp and treatment work perfectly together, the shot is mint!

I like 1 & 3, but would like to see some color, too.

It's an ideal sleeper: Small, light, fast, & ugly. ;)

I like the conversion. Gives them a nostalgic look to them. Very cool!

*sigh* I miss my mk2 GLI (GTX in Canada)....

Nice pics, but I don't think the B&W works...also, apparently this thing has a monster motor in it...but no pics of it???

EDIT: Okay, I see you have some on the site...why not on here? Also...you mention the NOS a few times...yet no pics of the bottle in the back seat?

Also...might wanna run a spell check on your article ;)

I posted these few pictures before I posted the article. about the spelling, it was fine before it had been reviewed by a site editor :P

about the nos, I didnt get any pictures that I even came close to liking of the bottle.

Without an actual picture of the power plant, name kinda throws off the set.

I'm sad to agree here, for all we know it could be a basic Jetta now, you don't show the BIG POWER ;)

I would actually have it finished in primer ... that would be awesome at the red light ... an old Jetta in paint primer leaving a Lamborghini in the dust :)

Maybe you should post a pic of the "Big Power" instead of the outside so many times. Its a stock VW lowered, probably cut springs, lol. I race Turbocharged VR6 swapped GTi's on bottle, SLOWWW! My buddy just ran a BIGGG turbo (even the owner said BIG ASS TURBO) GTi.....VW got walked by buses by a stock CIVIC with a unmodified engine swap. You can see the PS work in some of the pictures. GL with your blog.
