      Not an issue here, it's in a Mk2 Scirocco so the only issue I would see having is where the alternator location would be since it could interfere with the front crossmember if the alternator is...

      Was anything ever done with the 16vg60 brackets you were talking about making? I will be redoing my 16V twin screw project starting this year and if it's possible I may upgrade to the modern blocks....

      It's been forever since I have made an update, so let's do this. Sorry for the lack of content, especially concerning the actual project itself. I go back and forth a lot on sticking with the...

      I got one of these for work (Toyota Tech) and it's amazing. I jumped about 40 cars on a single charge before it needed to be charged up. Well worth the money. I have the Matco brand unit, a truck...

      My opinion is to keep anything that isn't broken or complete junk. I threw away and sold tons of stuff I wish I never would have, looking back I would have kept everything just in case. As someone...

      I'm glad to see you're still working on this project. They look really nice, I'll definitely be in for a set when you release them :thumbup:

      I'm glad I was able to help. I'm jealous you got a drill to work on the pin, I've never had luck with that.

      You can attempt to drill out the pin that holds the cylinder into the column, but it spins so it probably won't work out very well. Another option may be to call a locksmith and see if they can get...

      Very cool to see you guys will be installing a Passat trans. I think I mentioned this trans early on in the build but you had already made the plans for the 3 speed. Can't wait to see you get it...

      It looks really nice, can't really tell but is there damage down the entire left side or just a couple dents in the LF fender? I may be interested if the price is right, I couldn't spend that much...

      I'm not using an 02A/J but when I was researching the swap I came across a company that sells a cable to rod shift conversion kit. It allows you to utilize the stock shifter. I can't remember who...

      My big plans for this winter are to start building my low compression 9A for the supercharged setup. Throwing the 18 psi pulley on the blower should make the car pretty nuts to drive.

      My biggest regret was ditching the CIS-E in the first place and going 16vg60. I ran into plenty of problems and ended up putting the car back to stock so it would be drivable again. I do plan on...

      I wait until around Thanksgiving to put mine on. We never get snow before then and by that time of the year it usually stays pretty cold all day.

      Yeah the 9A is still pretty old, I'm not sure what year it was last offered in the Passat but it's around there. Unless you want to find an ABF and use that the only other somewhat easy swap would...
