      Go for a TDI 02J. I wish I had. Plus I think they already come with the 100mm drive flanges.

      :eek: Let me be the second. I love the way the front cross member came out. Can't wait to see the engine in there. Man I'm craving a rootbeer float right about now! :beer::beer:

      Well congrats and happy anniversary. Check out Lario's on Ocean Drive if you want good Cuban food and live music.

      Regarding 9 and 10 above, I have only one suggestion but it may go against your...

      For the future searcher: I've found the cause if the low oil pressure to the head. It appears to be some sort of fibrous material. Maybe an old gasket, maybe part of a defective oil filter, who...

      One does not simply launch a turbo 16V with 020.

      Also I'm convinced that no 020-sized clutch is worth it. I just went to an 02J with a mild clutch upgrade and love it. Before that my stock 16v...

      Yeah it seems kinda ironic. Anyway, I like to take the hood off, pull the radiator and then lift the engine out of the top with a hoist. I always use one of those balancer things you can get from...

      So do you want to keep your stock bore? go to a plus size to clean up an out-of-round cylinder? or bore it out to 83mm bore? I think JE won't charge any more for a custom size. You should call.

      As...

      JE can make custom pistons for your application. Connecting rods are the same for the PL and 9A (I think). The extra stroke is accounted for by the deck height of the piston. You might be able to use...

      I finally got around to checking oil pressure at the head. I used the 16V oil temperature sensor port in the back of the head near the distributor. I got about 2-3 psi!. This is with the motor warm...

      Man, everything looks so good, that the grill has become the weakest link. At least in the photo. Is the grill going to get a coat of satin black? I thought of doing this to mine, but my faded grill...

      I love that detail of the grille. I did that to mine too (but with euro lights).

      I forgot this was the wooden dash! Had to go back to page 10 to find it. I have to do this one day. It should be easier too since I don't have a use for the vents any more. Anyway it looks great.

      It's been a while. Any updates? Did you ground the JPperf board at the DB15?

      +1 for the Euro Lights. Your car looks great with the US lights, true. But it will look BETTER with the Euro lights. US spec lights are just a bastardization of the design intent of the car to meet...

      Your gold and chrome parts look awesome. Who does your plating? Do you have to do anything special before sending the parts? Like sanding down any texture on plastic parts?

      That paint is awesome. Did it look that shiny out of the gun? Was the sanding and buffing just to knock down any texture? I know you probably mentioned it a few pages back, but did you shoot clear...

      I had the dash out but it's actually better to have the dash in place to better check for fitment. Of course it will be more of a pain in the rear.
