      I need to wrap my exhaust where the cat was. The heat coming from under the console is deadly. Great numbers. There are some VRTs that ain't making that.

      I need to do the same bad, even the radiating heat from my muffler has started to melt the black part of my rear bumper.

      You could get your axles/CV's heat treated and hardened. I assume you are twisting the joints near the splines? You could also get axles made from a higher strength material, like from the Drive Shaft Shop (DSS).

      Well i was playing with the boost last week.....settled on 25psi and that last for about 4 days and then clutch slip came in New custom made clutch is ordered from Tampa clutch supply. 2100lbs pressure plate and reinforced 4 puck sprung disc is coming in tomorrow.
      I'll get pics when its here and should be installing it saturday.

      Also the Powersteering rack is leaking now. But i'm adding once every couple weeks so i'll wait on that

      The list of stuff is getting smalller.I need paint and body work still but that wont be till next tax return season.

      I gotta start looking at rings soon so the jetta might not be getting that new motor and turbo for abit

      My day

      starting with these things



      Got the trans out in not time



      old spec clutch




      old steering rack



      new rack in



      clutch and trans back in



      all done




      Had to do an alignment after that. Car feels good now. That rack was tight for about the first 20 miles. So far no leaks. And the clutch is heavy but holds


      And i did this afterwards

      So far nothing new. Having a son of a beotch time finding a 7/16-20 left hand bolt for my VWMS rear beam project. I installed the ISV a few weeks ago,this time with a check valve as to not bleed off boost. Also about 4 days after installing the clutch i had to removed the wilwood clutch pedal and make a huge steel reinforcement piece since it was going through the firewall. Tomorrow little project is to find where all the sweet engine fumes are getting in the car

      picture for looking



      You can see my old racks sweet leak lol
