      next on the list....
      rewire the radio system so it works
      pull the plastic interior parts and paint them
      install seat covers
      remove tape/glue residue from side moldings
      start repairing the dents/ dings

      Did the passenger side tinting...looks like crap around the bottom...that is the hardest part to get tucked under the window trim and remove the moisture...but it will do for the coming summer
      Better to go ahead and remove the window glass and it would be so much easier. Going to try that with the rear side windows.

      Washed it and then swapped amps around until I get my new box built. The old amp needs to go in the woman's car.

      Finally installed one of my zr1 chargers on my ABA. Something up with PCV cause I'm blowing oil out of dipstick tube and funnel is broke.

      Took off SRI, fuel rail, and some other odds and ends from old Golf Sport that's been sitting. Cleaned them up and polished some. Debating on installing with charger or selling.

      Got the hardware i needed to mount the t-stat housing pieces to the engine. Installed all new coolant parts from the crackpipe to the t-stat housing.

      Found 4 OEM VW bolts to mount the coilpack on ebay for $10 shipped.

      Next purchase will be new coolant hoses for the entire engine.

      Drove it around town, snagged a broken umbrella on the exhaust and dragged it all the way home.

      Well i been on the hunt for some wheels that I don't see so often. I found some ABT's!!! For dirt cheap too!!! F'n mint son.




      On a scale of 1-10, 10 being the highest. What would the rare-ness factor of these wheels be ? I know they are not super rare though.

      But anyways fixed my motor mounts again for the 8th time. They are done!!! Washed it and thought about selling it. Nah!!!
      She keeps tellin me you should sell that POS everyday. And then I consider the alternative. A quiet, boring, lil eco box. And then when im on the on ramp to the highway I punch it and wind out 3rd gear and hear that intake and the exhaust together in perfect harmony as it rips a humongous hole in the ozone layer and causes the spontaneous explosions of tree huggers faces . I my VR6!!!

      Decided it was time to swap the mid pipe for the new one cause the "soup can" wasn't holding up. I took it apart, got overwhelmed by all the rust and decided to put a new clamp on a different, but old pipe and mid muffler and call it a day. Returning parts is fun!
      <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/29308293@N05/7205101636/" title="Exhaust by ym212, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8027/7205101636_030b83fe1a.jpg" width="500" height="375" alt="Exhaust"></a>
      Then I took it for a spin to hear how it sounds, was satisfied for a $4 fix and parked it. As I was driving away on my new toy:

      I see a bird land on the roof, take a few steps, let a big one drop, and fly off. I just kept on riding.

      If you seriously pursue a tdi swap you want an ALH, not a BEW. BEW/Pumpe Düse motors make it more difficult to work on and have more known problems. They're more difficult to upgrade.. and with injector pumps on each nozzle, it's more difficult to time. I rambled.. just go with the ALH
