      worked on installing the new air intake boot and started sanding the grill to put a wrinkle texture look on it.

      well i thought about sitting in it but it smells like gas coz stupid me forgot to take the relay out and decided to roll down the windows ..reason is coz i undone the fuel lines from the tank coz the fuel pump needs work and didnt think of taking out the relay so when i turned it on the pump in the tank started and now my trunk is gas soaked ...bummer but oh well you live you learn...

      VR6T and no pictures? How cruel...POST UP!

      haha how rude of me!
      Here are some recent pictures.



      Today I finished the timing belt change on my 03 Passat 1.8Turd
      Today also I put in a new fog light where my glass fell out and broke. Thanks Triple Seis!
      My engine is really cluttered, gonna clean it up some. Its pretty much all custom fabricated with the exception of C2 MAF and chip and Kinetic manifold.

      You need to fix that wiring loom
      How long did it take you to do the timing belt?
      I did mine (A4 B5) for a day and a half, with a lot of breaks.
      It's an ATW motor though.

      Really not that long, About 5hrs of continous work. I changed timing belt and h20 pump, and coolant, spark plugs and air filter and oil change. I changed all the accessory belts too. The hardest part was getting the timing belt on all the gears without throwing anything out of alignment. I could probibly do it un 3hrs or less now that I am familiar with the setup and the procedure to slide the lock carrier forward. I also found that I had a busted water pump impeller and luckily I got the upgraded pump with the metal impeller. Heres the pic

      tore the front clip off so i can switch to g12 its been a long time coming and then i can also replace the leaky switches on top of the oil filter and then maybe i might do the rear brakes who knows i might even get to radio after that then she should be good for a while. good thing my dad is nice enough to lend me a car to get back and forth to work although i should have the bug fixed too so much work not enough light or time in the day
