      Nice. Looks a like it wasn't horrible, but it was definitely dirty.

      Yeah definitely was. I found that the intake manifold must of been replaced at some point because that pesky bracket was missing

      Gave my Jetta as much TLC as time could afford after not being able to come near her my freshman year in college and driving her from FL to ME. To those who know, love-bugs..

      Cool! I have the same intake. Need to get a new filter for it and the shield. My shield is all rotted. Yellow fogs FTW!

      Pulled my HPFP off to see maybe, just maybe, the follower got shaved when I lost oil pressure. Nope!

      Getting a used engine. Don't want to take chances rebuilding this one.

      Insulated the intake with Superlon cos I was cheapo and didn't get the BSH heatshield. Used back the stock heatshield. Some pics to complete the story short:

      In the bay:


      Dropped the temps but also soaked up more during a heavy traffic jam. I'll monitor over this week!

      I recently put on Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires replacing the Continental DWs. I liked the DWs but very happy with the Pilot Super Sports. Last week, I ended driving to the other side of Michigan to pick up roof racks and a set of bike carriers. Now there isn't an excuse for not riding lol.

      took my car up to my buddy's shop and confirmed that the r32 belly pan is totaled. also found out that my upper oil pan has been leaking fairly badly and that could be the answer as to why my car has been eating oil. so i have ordered the ecs aluminum belly pan and my friend is going to reseal the oil pan, install my new shifter linkage(previous job that was never finished due to time), and get me a new drivers side wheel well lining as mine is pretty damaged. i will also get an oil change done as it is needed as well

      Does anyone know where I could find a replacement outer passenger Helix LED tail light other than the for sale section/ebay? Will any retailers sell pieces individually? ECS and Modded Euros told me no lol.
