      What are the part numbers to look for and what's a decent source? The last experience I had with COPs was on my '01 GTI 1.8T AWW. I'm assuming they've got the COPs figured out by now.

      I just...

      What are people running for ignition? I think I'm blowing out spark at 15 psi with basically the stock ignition system and NGK bkr7e's gapped at .030". Do the FSI COP's really help under boost? Can...

      I bought an eBay FPR (another one) for my turbo 16V project. When it came in, it looked so crappy that I ended up tossing it and going with an Aeromotive. I went from a $20 FPR to a $150 one. The...

      Is that what that ground wire is for? Holy cow I thought it was just to ward off ground gremlins. Good to know.

      Is your IM shaft turning the oil pump shaft? Are those gears ok?

      First thing I would do is check the gauge. Then check the oil pickup, oil pump, and gears as mentioned before.

      And if it's not...

      Here's that shot. You can't see the master cylinder at all. http://tapatalk.imageshack.com/v2/14/09/22/7817e4669be2dc1fac883d85273819b9.jpg

      I'm a timing cover guy, I like the stock look and the protection so if tell you to hammer that one out, weld it as needed or get a used one. Others here don't run the timing covers and have...

      This is really interesting. I flipped through my Bently and I can tell you that 16V's are supposed to have a simple relay with only 4 pins and no electronic gizmos inside. The fuel pump is controlled...

      I wouldn't think its a lack of fuel pressure if it happens at no-load and at full load. It sounds like an ignition problem the way you describe it. The first thing that comes to mind is distributor...

      No, not really. A bolt through that hole would NOT give me enough travel. You can see in this pic that I moved the hole up a bit. I used a carbide burr. I checked the travel several times before...

      Thanks guys. My machinist already cleaned them up, well more than "cleaned" since we're talking .010" to .015", so I'll see how the stem height is and if needed, just buy new ones. He already cut the...

      No one in the 16v engine forum has any experience with something that comes up during a basic head rebuild? Has anyone ground valves and had any negative experience? Burned seats? What could happen?
