      it's a lot easier, and cheaper to mock it up that way, and figure out exactly what you need. Cutting the bar isn't that hard, its just a bit time consuming, and you'll need a few good tools to do it....

      I would just take the intake tube off the front of the turbo, and check for play. A little side to side is okay, as long as it still feels tight. In and out is a borked bearing. There is always going...

      I installed an IC on the front of my bug, and you're going to have to trim a little of that bar on the sides for it to fit right at the end tanks. It really isn't very much that has to be trimmed...

      I had this problem as well, and for me, it was the lower ball joints that were bad. I replaced the struts, the sway bar end links, and the bushings, with no fix. The ball joints getting replaced...

      I've got these similar brakes on my bug, but mine are cross drilled and slotted. To be fair, mine aren't raced, and never get up to heat, however I've had them now for over 60k miles, and never heard...

      You can get an aftermarket intake for it, from Neuspeed, ABD, etc, which will work fine for you, but it's not cold air, it's just an intake cone filter with a shield. The reason there isn't a cold...

      Hello:

      Personally, I would just go with what is suggested by the manufacturer, unless you're running a lot of modifications on the car. If it's just stock, then regular, OEM plugs will work fine,...

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

      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...

      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...
