      Swapped out the oil pan for a new one and put in a windage tray, followed by an oil change (duh).

      Quick question... why does Volkswagen hate the people who work on thier cars? Those two bolts nearest the tranny were a nightmare. At first I thought takin' 'em off was the hard part... I cross threaded twice before gettin' 'er to go. I got them almost to 15 ft/lbs before they started to round off. I hope that's tight enough. I'm gonna hate myself the next time I need to pull 'em off...

      By the way I used a 1/4' socket with u adapter and 1/4 to 3/8 adapter but the socket was just a bit too long to fit in there. An all in one u socket or shorter bits would have been better. Next time I'll have allen bolts on hand to replace.
      I know it's an 87, but it's MY 87.

      Finished 10.1 vented front rotor swap. Got some brand new brembo rotors, calipers, carriers, spindles, and lines.

      Anyone know how to rebuild front struts? I have an H&R sport cup kit on my Jetta and the fronts are both leaking. The passenger side still has enough in it where it feels right but the drivers lost alot. Anyway to rebuild this or refill it somehow? I talked to H&R about ordering new front struts and they said they would get back to me that day which was about a week ago and nothing yet. It would be pretty hard to find just the front struts for sale so rebuilding them is my first option.
      If anyone does have some for sale, i have cash and would love to buy them.

      Is USRT still in business? I found their website, but they haven't replied to my email. I was also wondering if they had a shop I could actually visit. I thought they were in NJ, thanks...and I haven't worked on the GTI since I snapped a piston ring
      My girlfriend and I may have broken up after three years, but then again, I have the MK2<3

      bought upper and lower radiator hoses for my early rabbit rad swap. unlike all the lazy people that just hacked up and spliced hoses today, i decided to do it the correct way with one hose, no splices

      Looks like I'll have to, hoping they can do a good port job so I can get around the power increases as the Eurospec head I was looking at. 026 103 265 JPB part number. They aren't priced too bad, and NAPA has had my head for an acid dip for the past three months

      And thanks

      Glad to hear it. Hopefully the next owner rescues it.

      On the Diesel I'm cutting apart and plastic-welding the intake air box to support a smooth, larger diameter intake tube. Using 3" high temp brake duct pulled directly to the fender. The piece I'm replacing used to choke down to 2" OD, around 1.75-1.8" ID, iirc. Now I'll have a 3" OD and a small trumpet of sorts (and a slightly tapered air box for pressure differentials.. Lol) to increase air velocity. Shouldn't slow down the air getting to the intake much as the engine "sucks" what it needs directly from the pass side fender. It's pretty slick from the factory actually, just improving a bit. I used an OBD-II VR6 air box for my donor pieces of plastic. JB weld on all the seams, and bailing wire fused into the panels where extra strength / rigidity may be needed.

      Trying to fix the AC, had to trace the ac compressor power line to the fire wall then to the relay box inside of the car. Removed it to see why the compressor wasn't getting any power, found out it didn't have the relay. I put everything back together now the car wont get any spark .
