      20V? so you have two marks yeah. crank and cam gear.

      sometimes when I do them I will pull the pin and it will move what I wanted. If this is happening to you...line up the crank mark and if the cam mark is off(which I'm assuming it is), then ask yourself if moving it ONE tooth will be what you want. If it will...line up your marks NOT for on pretension but what you want after tension.

      I know that all sounds crazy but it always works for me.

      And you might be good really. I don't know what method you are using to find TDC with the crank(mark, flywheel, screwdriver in the cylinder) but you usually have some play to work with. That's why I say...can it be made better by moving one tooth. The answer is usually pretty obvious. If it can't...roll with it...if it can...move a tooth.

      HTH,

      Well after giving up last night, I got pissed and knew if I kept going things would end up broken... (sorry flashlight )

      So spent 10 minutes this morning doing it with a fresh mind set and wammy done. So I think my major problem was I wasnt making sure the right side of the belt was fully tightened before putting the tensioner in. Thanks Jason for the advice.

      Anyone interested in an ATP FMIC for a MKIV 1.8t with piping for $350 (obo), the piping needs one silicone connector. Also have a set of Montes with three good Neogen tires, the forth tire has a hole in it. Looking to get $350 for those also. Also have more stuff laying around, feel free to ask if there is anything you're looking for, MKI-MKIV. Trying to get rid of my clutter.

      Bugout 66 was legit.

      Nate, got a whole new appreciation of detailing. Went and bought supplies tonight...

      Here's a few pics. The rolling one is my fave but he was driving alone on the interstate so couldn't get great shots...

      Sorry to whore it up with pics. But I had a great time.

      Also, I saw 3 other 20th AE's and was so upset by the stupid mods that had been made to them man...Like one dude had taken out the recaro buckets and put in these cheap looking bucket seats, tore up his radio setup for a little screen

      Another dude had painted like half of his black so it looked like a bumblebee...

      I think the show gave me

      A) an appreciation for aircooled
      B) an appreciation for a STOCK 20th
      C) an appreciation for detailing

      Yes detaling can be very difficult at times, especially on neglected paint.

      Pics look good, might want to tell your camera man to work on them rollin' shots

      Good bye to you all...I'm headed off tomorrow to go and get the Corrado!!

      Dude had a good camera, but driving on 495 was like driving on a small mountain road in peru and he had no one to hold his steering wheel, it was also his first time, gotta learn sometime lol. Better than the rolling shots i've taken of random vw's on interstates...

      Enjoy the corrado man.

      Already got that planned out......The Jetta will go to my father to drive....especially if I get orders to europe or korera (hope to god not)

      Ad the raddo will more than likely sit in a barn somewhere in NE Ohio...

      As for the bug, well its cheap so it'll sell quick

      Well, Lavi at Uni just shot me a pm telling me the discount at h2o for flashing is 100 bucks off...

      So the Stage 2 will only cost me 500 since there is no installation fee. That show is going to be sick, is anybody from Valdosta going???

      Jason what does HTH mean???

      And can someone tell me what the difference in size does for an RSB??? I think neuspeed sells a 25mm and a 28mm? i'd rather not ask that question in the 32G forum where everyone is a bit... yea...

      HTH - hope this helps.

      First off...are you asking about a rear sway bar(waste...read below) or a strut bar (stops the car from flexing).

      if you're talking about the sway bar...don't waste your money. To me it's just another bolt on part where the driver experience is not increased proportionally to the value spent.

      Ya dig.

      It's just another bolt on everyone thinks they "have to have." Have you pushed your car to it's handling limits? Do you know when it will begin to oversteer? Do you want to change when it over/understeers? That's when an RSB comes into play.

      Otherwise...spend your money that will give you more smile factor.

      HTH,

      your big bro.

      edit...I see you already have one. To really answer your question...I'll quote the intranetz...
      All of this trickery applies to a FWD car too, and since the front tires share all of the
      motive AND most of lateral traction (because most of the weight is in front), all the things
      that happen with big bars at either end are even more extreme. A big front bar stabilizes the body
      lean more but also creates a lot more understeer, and may make the inside front tire spin madly under
      power in a corner. A big rear bar can't give you back much lateral grip up front, but it can
      give you back some motive traction. Basically lettting you
      accelerate out of the turn, even when the front end is sliding pretty badly.

      Here's a big rear bar in action on a FWD car.

      Don't have an RSB yet jase, it's just on the list of random stuff I want...

      I was thinking RSB because I know I drive pretty hard on my car, Nate inspired me that day in his Jetta in that neighborhood, since that day i've been pushing the car when the opportunity presents itself.

      I'm hoping that sometime in the spring I can take it to a track for the first time. I think that would be cool. Or maybe next summer when i'm home I could go with you and some people so you could show me how to shift hard and how to race?

      The Corrado is soooo smooth. Totally impressed with this almost 20 year old car..og suspension is actually quite nice. Deffo have to replace motor mounts though!!


      Yeah, Brandon you'd love my new tires, that little trip we took round that circle would be 10x more fun now...

      I heart my rsb...kinda pricey but to me worth it. Stock gti's and glis handle amazing though. I agree with Jason, money is better spent in the hp department for now

      RSB is def. towards the end of my mod list...

      Ahead of it are thee Uni Stage 2 in 3 weeks. Then 007 DV. Then 42dd 3 Turboback. Then Eurojet FMIC. Then RSB. Any other bolt on is useless when I go BT in 2 years...

      And somewhere in all of that I want the headlights restored, the upholstery fixed in two spots and the wheels resurfaced...

      Then my car will be ready to rock some shows.

      I've never driven in a corrado. So next time i'm in Valdosta you'll have to give me a ride, I saw a few very nice ones though at bugout. They seem like a fun car to modify though, or a good car to take the engine out of and drop it into a mk1 rabbit.

      all locals - it's time to unite.

      I was talking with a guy a work tonight who went to test-n-tune last week(not the week andrew/nate went) and said there were some ricers talking trash.

      So...Rob...get the 337 ready for battle, Nate...bolt on the VF blower, Matt(...this for both of you) - prepare the Jetta's, Andrew - paint the cabby pink( )

      We need to get out there and shove some damn boost down these *****'s throats!

      DO you know how hard it is to start some kind of VW culture where there dosen't seem to be any. Just moved to Dothan, Enterprise (Ft Rucker) area and can not find anything. Let me know if anyone's around this area or I can drive a bit to hook up. Please help keep the culture alive...Peace and happy Dub'n

      yeah I know it is hard to start a club where there seems not to be any, but it can happen. Just make up some flyers of sorts about starting a club and place it on VDubs you see while driving around the area, it can happen.

      We are off and on active here in Valdosta. I run the VW local club, but don't have as much time as I used to, to do stuff all the time. The club is mainly aircooled, but all are welcome when we have out meets, which I guess I need to organize one of them later this month. Got to go to PA for a VW Event/race this weekend.

      Guys this weekend is the Classic Car meet at Toys r Us plus the Steak n Shake thing, but that one isn't working out that well and I know you guys don't like to come hang with the Scions!

      Also, would you guys be interested in being in the Honeybee Festival Parade?

      Usually I like to put the 58 in the parade but we actually would rather walk around cause there's just so much to look at.

      As for this weekend...can't make the classic car thing. I'll be in FL...again.

      yeah I know what you mean, Luci can't watch the parade and be in it at the same time. Well she can watch the parade, but she would be looking at the same portion of it for 20 min!

      It rained 12" here... the whole island is flooded.

      No pink Cabby. I think I would be able to run with Matt N. anyway, I think the only thing he's got that I don't is the front mount and an exhaust that's 1/2" bigger. Probably wouldn't drag race anyway though.

      I'm with Nate on the RSB, if I knew how much of a difference it makes on my car I would have bought it the day I bought my car. I have the Neuspeed 28mm on the medium setting and nothing else done with my suspension and it's a whole different car now.

      I am ready to go to the track when you guys find the time! Although I think I am going to be a little embarrassed, I actually lost a good bit of hp with the new setup, not sure exactly what it is, just still seems sluggish. That's just all there is to it, it's just time for BT!!

      Also, would going to a Non VVT tensioner make top end seem a little jumpy? It used to pull like a mo-fo in top end, now it is flaky, a lot of noise, but no power.

      I feel the same way about mine now. If I bring it anywhere above 5k it falls on it's face. Maybe I should take a trip down the track just to test out the 100 octane software since I have it.

We live a mile off of I-75 just south of Tifton (Exit 55). We'll be grilling, so come spend Saturday afternoon/evening with your local dubbers. Check seeuro.com for info - "GTG at Ace and Erik's"

      we know...hopefully some of us will be there. What's your address?

      Matt - the only thing I can think is that since you have a high flowing head, it's that small turbo isn't pushing enough boost to really fill it up. Sounds kinda odd but if the head is flowing real good...you gotta keep the boost coming.

      Blue will pull till the valves float! (Damn I love DBC)

      There is also a Solo II event on the 20th. Driving my MK4 fast in tight spaces is like wrestling a gorilla, so I might bring the Cabby out for that - not in pink though.

      I'm on swings so I'm probably out.

      I'm down for the GTG's though. Erik, did I meet you at a Sonic GTG last year? Jazz blue 20th, you were building your house at the time?

      I'll be goin to this one for sure. Time to stretch Blue's legs out. I'll run it at 14psi to be a get a base run. Then maybe next time I'll go back with more boost/less weight.

      We shall see...

      Yes sir, that's me. Hope you can make it. It'll be good to meet old dubber friends, and new ones.

      From the south, take I-75 to Exit 55. Turn right off the exit. At the stop sign (Hwy 41), take a right. Take the first left (Owen Medford Rd) and we are the 5th mailbox on the right. House number 86. Send me an im and I'll give you my phone number if you need it.

      Clearing out the project stash. PM me for more info!

      I would love to go to any of these things but my ****s all broke. I feel like a pretty ****ty mechanic right now. But whatever I gotta keep truckin on. New Spindle/wheel bearing/hub assembly on its way for the 337. As for the S4, now my 2 rear subframe mounts are completely seperated. Interesting enough the mod list from the classified said it had a subframe stabilizer which bolts up to these mounts. Needless to say there is no stabilizer bar there now. Makes me wonder if it didnt get ripped off when the Succubus was driving it somewhere. Anyways got the Density line replacements from 034. Also cleaned the MAF but that didnt do any good. Block 002 shows 0gp/s at all times. **** is dead. I hope replacing it will get it out of limp mode. I dont see bad 02 sensors or bad cat putting it in hard limp mode but we shall see. Waiting on parts like usual.
