History, Inspiration, or other Backstory about your build

Always wanted to do a modified GTi, and when my best friend decided to sell a part of his collection, I jumped on the VW and a damaged Audi TT. This was supposed to be a mild street car with a simple engine and wheel swap. When I realized I could put a turbo, and the interior was so small I could only fit small bucket seats, I changed my plans immediately!!! I chose to build a stupid too powerful hatch, basically a car to kill yourself in!! This build was a series of changing plans, with the wheels, steering wheel, cage, intake, seats… all these parts had to be redone and rethought!!!
Almost a year and a half to get it done, with other « squirrel » projects slowing the build, and also had to move in that process.
