      This.

      And I find lowering your engine a little helps give a bit more wiggle room.

      Same here.

      Really all those tabs are for is holding it from falling off while you install the fork.

      Normal on most cars to some degree (my Mk5 rabbit with stock trans/clutch/FW does it) but usually more pronounced on cars with a light weight flywheels.

      I'm 2.9 and running an off the shelf EPROM from TT. Not significant enough to require specific software.

      This.. barcode looking sticker on the passenger side of the VC and also on the option code sticker under the trunk floor to the left of the spare tire.

      This may sound silly, but any issues with packaging? Part of the reason I've never bothered to subscribe is because I like crisp unfolded mags, free from address stickers and bent corners.

      Great...

      Crank sensors are notorious for hot start issues. You can measure the resistance of the sensor coil. Can't recall the resistance range (500-800ohm or something like that - it's in the Bentley)....

      I'd be checking to see if you have a draw as my next step.

      And what's your driving schedule like? Driven everyday and for how long? Does it power up at all (dash, lights, etc.) or just not crank?

      I wrapped a piece of wood (harder the better) in a couple plastic bags to catch the splinters and jammed it against the crank inside the block. I don't think I was able to get the full 90* before the...

      Ya, there's a copper crush washer on that bolt that you can replace. Sounds like that's all you need.

      Part number is N 0138271

      I have.. and I was there years ago. I sat and listened and was flamed accordingly when I spoke BS. And such is the way of the vortex., you get called on your BS and learn from it.

      I personally have Ferrea. And I've heard storied about the Autotech ones breaking, no personal experience tho.

      He's right.. trust the expert who's been flamed by just about everyone and managed to talk trash to senior well-respected community members.. :thumbup:

      Makes sense. In that case, I'd say the better option would be to source an OEM banjo fitting like the ones used on Corrado (and Mk3 i believe, but not 100%) for the OEM oil pressure sender. They use...

      I have the water adapter pipe for the upper rad hose you've linked and it works great. But I'd be a little nervous of using the drain plug mounted oil temp kit. The relocation kit will cover both the...

      Hmmm.. wishing I'd paid closer attention to the difference between the TT 268's and the Schricks. I really think my engine could use more up top. Debating on a Schrick 276 set at the moment..

      Ya.. sorry dude. Usually if a sensor doesn't cure it then it's a timing issue like you mentioned :(

      What's the fault code/description you're getting?

      Boo hoo.. on with the show :cool:

      But to keep on topic, I'm also interested in your setup rootbeer, specifically cams. Assuming from the lump, they're in the 276-288 area..?

      Love those runs...

      Glad I'm not the only one feeling this.

      I'm by no means an expert, so I come here for the real world experience of those who ACTUALLY have done it. If I wanted regurgitated internet heresay I'd...
