      What's your budget?

      Going all motor can be just as expensive as adding forced induction on these engines. I started with mild cams, an old EIP intake manifold, 3-inch exhaust and a tune, and now...

      All the pulleys have been replaced relatively recently (same time I did the chains). Noise is present even with serp. belt removed.

      My '97 has a flat cluster. After I installed my aluminum rad, I bled the system correctly as I've done countless times before, the needle would read a tick hotter than 190. It kinda alarmed me, as my...

      I didn't use my 12 point socket bits to remove the axles. I bought the autozone/advance/napa brand ones that fit inside a 13mm wrench and used those to remove them since they were shorter than my...

      I'm not sure about running 17s on the daily (and I just missed a set of 15" ATS cups locally) so Terrence might put them back up for grabs! He's been having no luck with his Mk3 either so I...
