      The question is why are you changing the axle?

      If torn boot, then yes, absolutely just disassemble, clean, repack, and new OEM boot. The cheap ones crack within a year.

      It will ride the same as the 1000's of Mk3's on 205/40/16. Same sidewall.

      And 205/45/17 looks like a truck tire on a Mk3

      6,4,or 3 puck? The 6 is very forgiving. A 6 puck fx400 is in my opinion, the best deal out there for a street driven 500wtq setup. 6 puck fx500 (solid hub version of the fx400) gets chattery, the...

      Another vote here for the FX400.

      I currently am running a FX500, but I prefer unsprung. The weight loss is great for 7k+ shifts. You just have to get used to the inevitable heavy chatter if you...

      Tq and load overpowers clutches, has nothing to do with WHP.

      And someone who "knows how to drive" will kill stock pressure plates left and right in a 190whp N/A car.

      These can be done in 15 mins, in the parking lot, with a long pick, long 45* needle nose, and a impact driver.

      I wouldn't think these would sell, as the $3 replacements already available will last the rest of the life of the vehicle. Never had a replacement break on any car I threw them in.

      Don't waste money on head studs on a basically stock build. That's a completely asinine way to waste $150 (if you go with cheap arp's), hell, any NA build that isn't getting torn down every year...

      288's are very drivable. Bump the idle up, and you will barely notice them.

      A mild Vr with 288's will still have more power off idle then a ABA, and there are 100's of thousands of people that...

      The H&R race and Neuspeed race both drop you into the positive camber curve. They shouldn't even be mentioned if thinking in terms of a performance oriented setup.
