      Do you need the OSX counter box itself, and the short cable from it to the speedometer?

      In Illinois I have the front pair of those exact seats out of a 1997 Audi A4 1.8T.
      The rear seats may still be available, I can look today.

      The driver seat has a worn bolster just from...

      NAPA & Carquest still have drawers of bolts, for shops that don't use cheap bolts causing customers to return steamed that the new bolts are all rust after 6 months.

      Next time I would first BUY the special tool that fits in the two small holes in the tensioner, in order to hold it in place while properly torquing the 8mm nut. Can't hold it with a little allen...

      NOOOOO, the Water Pump comes straight out to the front of the engine, requiring just removing the odd t-cover bolt, along with the A/C, Alternator and P/S if a Cabriolet.

      Water pump is a lot of...

      Yes you can do that. I swapped in a 2H engine into my CIS Scirocco.

      Everything will just bolt right up, leaving just the injectors to install.

      First you need to replace the large seals on...

      Above the main pump is a plastic fuel filter/reservoir/recirculator (nearly impossible to find a new one) that allows fuel from fuel distributor to head straight into the main pump.

      Have you done the 16V front brake upgrade yet?
      I wasn't aware how simple that is until a few years ago.

      Just need the larger diameter rotors, pads, calipers and caliper holders that just bolt...

      Wiring to the fuel pumps was woeful on Sciroccos - just one wire to each pump, from a harness connection behind the fuse panel.
      Later VWs use 2 or 3 wires to each pump.

      I am relating what I remember the long time VW shop owner telling me 5 years ago. He might have meant those that overdo it as he would have seen their work. Wouldn't a Turbo increase the air...

      So you are calling VW engineers idiots then? They increased it for the upgrade from CIS to DIGI.

      That big starter motor will actually propel the car a short distance, even if you don't try and start it. Just saying, if you need to move it.
      I did that to climb an off-ramp after my fuel pump...

      Add step 1.5: Center punch that flat end as precisely as possible. If threaded at the cut, it will be offset as one side will have more of the thread than the other.

      Consider shipping it?
