      Either lower ball joints or lower control arm bushings. I replaced my control arms, and the clunking was still there. Probably should replace both.

      Hello. You might have better luck at the other Beetle forum finding this answer. http://forums.vwvortex.com/forumdisplay.php?5309-The-Beetle

      The Genesis fuel pump is a good option as well, at $250 from USRT, if you plan on doing any kind of upgrades.

      Brake wear sensor. Just twist these wires together, and solder them. Either heat shrink or tape them, and tuck them away. This is assuming this is on the drivers side.

      For that price range, probably Gonzo's or Frankenturbo. Up to about 280hp or so, you won't need rods. However, if you want 300+, you'll need rods as these turbos spool up so fast, you'll have a nice...

      Hello:

      One of the best options for exhaust, and it's not too expensive, is through 42 Draft Designs (http://www.42draftdesigns.com/VW-Mk4-Jetta-Golf-GTI_c_46.html). 2.5" should be big enough for...

      Get yourself a straight through magnaflow muffler. They give a decent rumble, and will satisfy johnny-law.

      There aren't too many things to leak on that side of the motor. There are the hoses that go into your firewall, to the flange on the drivers side of your motor, to the top of your radiator, then to...

      Had the driver put it in neutral before dragging it, it should have been fine, as it's lowspeed. However, if he just took it and pulled it without being in neutral, you're probably going to need a...

      I think this is the best (only) option for you, as the spoiler is otherwise speed controlled by the ECU.

      Sorry, this gave me a giggle. 150k miles? Not on these engines. 60-80k, more accurate. Personally, I replace mine about every 60k, as that $100 every 5 years is worth it to me for piece of mind, and...

      Loving the front shot of the cars side by side. Look at the NA, and it looks all happy and easy going. Look at the ND, and it looks mean and pissed off. Lovely. :D

      The radiator is pretty well sealed, and you'd have to take it out of the car to really look into it. Our cooling systems generally do their jobs well. What I'd try next, is drain the radiator (there...

      There is no fender work on these. The fenders are plastic. So you're restricted on width.

      Hello:

      Yes it will fit, however the gearing is lower on the 1.8t transmission. It won't seem as peppy as it did with its original transmission. However, it will probably net her a bit better gas...

      Probably a coolant temp sensor, or coolant level sensor in the coolant bottle. Any check engine lights?

      Glad I could help

      Don't let them charge you for wires, as there aren't any. It runs off ignition coils. :D

      Hey Pete.

      Did you happen to already do the rods on your engine? I didn't see this referenced, but would be a huge limiting factor on the power you can run.
