    1. WTB: Hood, passenger fender, front crossmember

      Preferably Tornado Red but hell, I'm not picky. Straighter the better but minor dings are acceptable.

      WTB: OBDII ABA MAF sensors

      Don't need the housing, just the sensor itself. Thanks!

      So life happened and I finally got around to installing the StgIII kit on Sunday. So far so good, very streetable, barely noticeable effort increase over a Clutchnet StgII (MkII ABA Turbo with a...

      When the motor is out is the PRIMO time to swap the steering rack, and it only runs around $160 if memory serves for a decent aftermarket unit. Worth it IMO if you plan on keeping the car for any...

      If that's the original rack I'd put money that the seals are leaking. Should be replaced, but realistically no one ever does.

      WTB: 2 Dr Golf Rain Gutters

      I know, I know, they're the holy grail... My roof rack just tore a hole in mine and I nearly cried. They've needed replacement for years, now it's a bit higher priority.

      Anyone have a set they're...

      Either cut the jumper in half and splice it into a Y, or strip the center half inch of insulation off and solder the interior power wire to the bare section. Either way you'll get two powered plugs...

      30 and 30b have a jumper between them in a MkII by default, but for the swap they should be spliced together with main power.

      The black/yellow in that photo is fan controller power and has...

      Seals are healthy and the feed has a restrictor. I'm running a catch can as well. It's a tiny amount of oil but it's enough that eventually it gums up the MAF. The intake tract is all downhill and it...
    15. Small amount of blowby is fouling my MAF over time. Any trap designs or ideas?

      I'm getting a small and normal amount of oil blowby dribbling down my intake from the cold side of my turbo. The filter is at the lowest point so it tends to run down there over time. The problem is...

      Order placed (with the correct credit card even!).

      Might want to move the item to the MkII Drivetrain section as well, most of them came with small spline transmissions.

      Thanks guys!

      Label where everything connects. I use masking tape and a Sharpie to label each harness, makes reattachment much easier.

      Triple check to make sure everything is disconnected. Constantly check as...
