      Ok folks, here's how I'd like to handle submissions.

      Reply to this topic with links you feel should be included in the FAQ/DIY. I'll review the links and then add them or reject them and let you know why.

      After I make a decision I'll delete your post so I know I reviewed it.

      I have a picture tutorial, with captions, of how to inspect/install a cam follower on a Longitudinal Audi A4 2.0T. It includes a lot of extra pictures of the process and the tools needed for the job.

      http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=3940922

      Might be redundant since you have one for the GTI/GLI/A3, but thought I would offer anyway.

      It doesn't seem like any of the links to Vortex threads are working anymore.

      Probably due to the switch to vBulletin.

      I am thinking of swapping out my 2.0T (bottom end is no good).

      1) Is a full swap the easiest route to take considering that this is my daily driver and I need the motor running on this car stat?

      2) Or would it be just as easy to swap the bottom end and keep the costs down?

      3) Is there a DIY instruction for the engine/bottom end removal?

      DIY: 2.0t Timingbelt / Waterpump (w/ Non-divided cover) and Thermostat

      The timing belt part of the DIY is finished. There is enough info for you to replace your thermostat, just not a step by step posted yet. I will be posting that later on this week! Good luck to anyone that is going to perform this procedure on their own! Anyone can PM me with questions any time!

      As a total noob, I find this book infinitely useful:

      http://www.vaglinks.com/Docs/VW/Misc...SSP_821503.pdf

      A lot of the people here are familiar with the engine but for those of us who aren't this is a good resource.
