Additional Info

Please read entire listing! I have my 1983 rabbit GTI for sale , it’s rust free , original paint , has blue interior that’s in excellent shape. I bought this almost 3 years ago when I lived in Florida, I put a 1.8t from a 2004 GTI , engine has 68k miles , engine was cleaned and painted, everything on it is new , hoses , water pumps , sensors . I put IE forged rods in the block to handle the power . Most parts where purchased from S&P , google it if you are not familiar. Plug and play harness , including drive by wire gas pedal , has OBD port . 
Custom S&P radiator with fan and relay, custom motor and trans mounts , oil cooler with fan ,  front mount intercooler. United Motorsports tune with promaf, 660 injectors , FSI coilpacks , Garrett t3/t4 turbo , purchased new, precision wastegate , fordge dv , walhbro fuel pump, custom down pipe with v-band , tectonics tuning exhaust with magnaflow muffler . Nothing has been cut or permanently modified on the car , every gauge works including rpms, has oil pressure,oil temp, boost, vdo  gauges and   Aem wideband , 
Transmission is 02j , rebuild with wavetrac LSD, with recommended oil , eurovan cable conversation with S&P linkage conversation. Clutchnet clutch and pressure plate , Raxels axels. 
Corrado 11” front brakes , new calipers and rotors, stainless lines . Mk4 Rear brakes disc conversion , purchased new including hubs, hawk pads all around. Wilwood  proportions valve .  Suspension , ST coil overs , front triangle bar , rear 28 mm autotech sway bar, new poly rear beam bushings , new front a arms with bushings , Dunlop direzza tires, 15x8 snowflake replicas.
Interior is a solid 8 out of 10 , some fading on rear panels , seats are excellent, headliner is perfect, dash is excellent, deck lid is perfect, carpet is excellent.

Exterior is original paint, a few spots the paint is worn through, couple  dings on the front fender , all that can be easily touched up . I have new stripe set I can include. 
 Now the bad ,  I started the car over 2 years ago , since then I moved from Florida to Maine , haven’t had much time for it with the new house , I finally completed the car to sell a few months ago , while out on a drive last week , the timing tensioner nut came off and bent the valves, my fault  . I just don’t have the time for this car , I did reset the timing, engine spins freely so their should only be damaged valves . All it needs is a new head or the valves replaced. A head can be found for under $300. Feel free to check my username out on vwvortex  or r3vlimited. I have been a member there for years and have built and sold several cars with happy customers. $300,  a head gasket, some head bolts and a weekend you can have a clean 350 whp mk1 GTI , these cars are only going up in price and extremely hard to find this clean . I’m not desperate to sell , worse case I will throw the cover on it in the garage and fix it over the winter. I do have another 1.8t bottom end with 60 k but no head , original suspension with H&R stock height springs with KYB shocks I can include. I have a video clip of it running before the timing tensioner nut came off .  I can also send more pics . Feel free to come look at the car. I have a trailer so can get it to a shipping terminal if that helps . Please contact me with all arrangements , I prefer certified bank check  that must clear before car leaves my yard and $500 deposit required after sale.
