      If you have to post this up, don't bother. Not to be an @$$, but yeah.

      There is a TON of fabrication involved. Or buy an Eurowise vr6 swap kit. EVen then, lots of fabrication. Even with an...

      The inside shaft can be shortened about 1/16 to 1/8". It goes through the CV and there is a clip. Most of the axle after the clip can be ground off. The inner cv seems to be the one that breaks on...

      The 4spd shifter plate is different from the 5spd one. You need to swap that too. This is your shifter plate.

      20 bar is 290 psi. That would be damn good, if not high on a 1.8 gasser. I am thinking it is good on a diesel, but look up the specs in your Bentley. Diesels do run much higher compressions. ...

      1) WHENEVER I have any battery or charging system issues the first thing I do is hook up a charging system analyzer. You can do this with a trip to (insert any favorite car parts store here). The...

      Yeah but look at what is missing here. The axle shaft attaches to the inner portion of the CV joint. If that breaks, and this is where they usually break, then when it gets pulled apart, your left...

      I would lean towards an internally failed/restricted soft line. But, I also can't count the times NK1 cars have given me HELL bleeding them. I live and breath VW and also wrench for a living. Very...

      Do yourself a favor, don't weld anything to the seat! You may someday decide you want to use it! We cut out the rear floor section of a totaled rabbit and then welded some bracing and legs to it...

      Only minor grinding on the 90mm spindles is required to run the 100mm axles. The 1.6 clutch is a good bit smaller. I would go with the bigger clutch as your planning on beefing up the other bits...

      My apologies. My intent was not to start trouble and a big debate. I took "make minor adjustments" to mean minor "tuning." For said tuning you would "probably" be using software like Lemmiwinks. ...

      Again my knowledge base is outdated as I mentioned. Back in the day I remember legally buying Ross Tech licenses for the software, and using the software with less expensive ebay cable options. If...

      That is not VW specific.... While it might be useful, for "VAG" purposes it is mostly junk. Also keep in mind that is ONLY the software and not cable inclusive.

      Okay there is your problem, sorta. That voltage regulator feeds EVERYTHING in the cluster EXCEPT (I believe) for the high beam indicator. The indicator bulbs are all LED, again except for the high...

      The size above is "slightly" narrower than stock and a taller aspect ratio to compensate and give same size circumference. They work awesome and grip pretty good too.

      I put a new clutch pushrod in it already along with seal and bushing. Not sure if I replaced the mainshaft seal, if not I have a new one ready to go in.

      All new clutch kit ordered, a stage 2. ...

      Thanks for the reminder... I have never bothered to flare any of the setups I have done, but it wouldn't hurt. What I do do though, is to slip the fuel line on about 2" and then use two hose clamps...
