      Pioneer Avic Z1 installed today!

      Flush fit - looks amazing.

      Soldered the VSS wire this time - tach and speedo are DEAD on.

      Great success

      Nothing of great interest, a Prius.

      gf made me mad

      so i got a bike rack, threw some lamin-x on my depo's, blacked out my b-pillars.
      and it turned out to be one of those "nothing fights"

      Switched in a K&N drop in filter... can't really notice any difference, but I'll take their word for it that she's breathing better

      today i finally got to some maintenance stuff and then some..


      -oil change
      -tire rotation and plug a tire
      -haldex fluid and filter
      -air and pollen filters
      -cupra front lip
      -flapper mod
      -leather conditioner


      next week ill tackle the rear differential and transmission fluids


    16. 04-19-2008 02:10 PM #121

      Changed the oil ( after 6500 miles ) last week, and rotated a tire.
      This weekend, I finally installed my "Grounding Kit" that had been laying around the house for 2 years! Easy install.

      Also changed out my rear differential oil this morning after hearing some "reports" that VW may have used tranny oil in the rear diff as well. My rear diff fluid was clean ( 21,300 miles ), with no noticeable metal shavings or dirt. However, the viscosity seemed pretty thin to me, almost like that of ATF fluid.

      Easy to change.
      Just got the special drain plug socket tool from Metal-Nerd for $25.00 and put in some Mobil One 75/90 synthetic gear oil.

      Put an EIP cat delete pipe on...only to find out it's too short to mount up with my APR exhaust.
      Arguing over the internet is like being the smartest kid with Down's Syndrome...I think my case is full blown.

      Mine's finally back together: new trany case w/ new bearings, shimed up perfect (thanks Prestige Performance), along with a new clutch disc & throwout bearing, new VF dogbone, new front subframe, new dustshields, add a 4-wheel aling., I guess I should have bought that skidplate before I went skiing. It is nice to have it back on the road. Jimbo

      Walked by it getting into the GTI this morning; the R hasn't moved since autocross on April 13th. I need to put the driver front Flik back on now that I got the 615 plugged. Car looks odd with one polished Monte and three gray FTDs.
