      I don't know what the H2S parts replace, but the list of OEM parts is pretty simple. From the top of the spring:

      Two questions:

      1. How much did extrude hone cost you on the SPA manifold?

      2. Can you convert your dyno numbers to Freedom units for us dumb Americans? :D

      Bah, stupid Websense @ work blocked the page as I submitted my answer. I'll repost tonight. Short of the long, it was probably overfilled from the factory intentionally.

      Picked up a new plug, and a package of copper crush washers from Grainger instead of the OEM. My plan is to change the ATF every other oil change.

      Sorry about the delay getting back to you! The drain can be accessed with the car on the ground and a 24mm socket. I use a long Rubbermaid entree storage container (forget the size, but holds at...

      I finally figured out that the spacer that came stock on my Jetta was fine. There's virtually zero gap between that strut hat and top of the strut tower, and the rubber on the hat was indeed getting...
    13. PSA - Mk4 Jetta GLX Aftermarket Brake Pad Part #

      Had a bit of trouble changing my brakes a few weeks ago. I ordered new rotors and pads from Advance and when I tried to change the front pads they were completely wrong.

      Racing Brakes rotor rings are specifically and uniquely designed to work with their rings. They are not interchangable with another brand.

      Messy engine bay? It's missing the battery box is all. Though I will agree "unmolested" and a complete respray are definitely not in the same category. Wonder what color it was before?
