      I have a 42dd coolant pipe and it fits fine. Although I did eventually switch to an aluminum thermostat housing.

      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...

      Removed my PCV hoses and they were caked up with milkshake. Removed it and plugged the intake and ran a vent tube off the valve cover for now until I install a catch can. Symptoms are 90% gone. Have...

      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...

      Pretty ****ty. I believe Beru is considered OEM. They look and feel and are assembled MUCH better than the Bremi brand ones that have failed on me. One failed without the thermal plate, and one...

      Don't think that the solid bushings don't make a difference, because they do.

      I have a 02j tower with a mk4 box, solid bushings, and a dieselgeek sigma 5 on my car. It's cool and all, but...

      I currently have an OEM pack...
