      TT will get cleaned up and hopefully detailed between tonight and tomorrow morning. On Thursday - it will go in for new bushes in the rear position the front control arms. The ones I have in now are the MKII oem's and they are toast. Been in for about 1.5 years and 12 track days - went in with the Decons. Don't know why they are in such bad shape - but could have not been installed correctly or just bad bushes to start with. I've got Powerflex Poly's to go in - even though i've always advocated not using them - I figured I'd give them a try since OEM's don't seem to last that long either. Powerflex poly's are much nicer than the ECS (crap) or Prothane in that they have a metal plate bonded to the top lip which is wide - much wider than the ECS or Prothanes. We'll see how they work. Some have had issues with fitment (control arm is too thick for the bush) others have not. I'll have a set of OEM's with me just in case they don't fit.

      Just picked my TT up from the shop, got the timing belt changed, haldex fluid/filter, coolant system flush and an oil change while it was there. $1163.38

      It's running great now though and I'm not driving around paranoid that my engine is going to "explode" at any moment. I was at 63,061 miles and had a whirring noise coming from the timing belt side that is now gone - it was probably the tensioner or water pump as I suspected.

      Now I get to complete my carputer installation this weekend and hopefully I'm good for a few thousand miles so I can stop spending money fixing it and get it chipped, exhaust, suspension work, etc....!

      got to drive my car today (first time since sept). However the head was loud as hell and we are going to replace the lifters since the old ones seem to not be doing so well. But at ~7psi, the car pulled about the same as it use to at ~18psi.

      Still have a few bugs to work out before i take it home for good.

      Just go look at my AF gallery, its the same but covered in dust

      When the car is running like it should, the shop wants to put it on the dyno to get the a/f set so i should have some numbers also. Not going to boost to much since the injectors are so freaking small. May only run 14-17psi @4bar

      that intake must be cheaper than a gruppe M $800

      it's clear that they're admirers of their product
      since it looks a lot like it.

      the roof racks....

      got em off ebay, I only put them on when I'm going to use them cause they make a ton of noise up there.

      the EVOMS v'flow installed, it's a nice piece, the billet parts are perfect
      everything is a SNUG fit and fits perfect.

      this is the INA street density mount.... doesn't look like much but it's very worth while if you ask me.

      The V'flow you can't hear at idle... but as soon as you're done with 1st gear you really hear the DV go PSSSSHHHHHT! The car sounds great with the intake.

      Tinted my tails with Lamin-x. Still have small bubbles, but those will subside in due time.

      Changed spark plugs to the NGK BK7RE's, next week I might be doing the Heldax fluid and finally getting around to installing my Dension Gateway 100 for my iPod.

      Just swapped out my MAF sensor for one that doesn't give false readings.

      changed my spark plugs to the new pulse plugs and swapped out my fuel filter for the 3rd time in 2 weeks.. due to water in fuel i picked up on last tank... sucked ballz.. but the pulse plugs make the car idle.. so smooth.. and seems to make the power come on slightly faster about as strong as before.. but seems like it comes in like 100 or 200 rpms sooner.

      FINALLY GOT A/C!!! My compressor went out awhile before my engine build and got a nice used compressor but after the engine was installed they found out the connectors were differnt. So today i had to remove part of the sai so i could cut and solder on the old connector. Kind of cramped but i managed. Then i did one of those self a/c kits and it works great now.

      Well there aren't a whole lot of aftermarket intakes in that style and that price range (250-300)

      You can be the judge of which looks cheaper...this at $320 shipped

      or this at $265 shipped

      DAMN!!!

      clean the TT up last night...... Drove to work today.... car got too hot for my tastes..... temp gauge got over the tick past half way ... stayed there until I was free from traffic.....

      Things I have replaced, Thermostat, water pump, temp sensor, fan control module......

      fans are working so either my cluster is taking a crap (pixel in middle are almost gone) or I have other issues

      I swear if this car wasn't pretty I would of dumped it long ago..... How the hell can my 1986 Scirocco run cooler than this new tech pig

      end rant

      If you're sitting still or in extreme heat one tick past half isn't anything to worry about...

      I did, I did taw a putty tat

      Pretty lame I know but I noticed that air freshener earlier and couldn't resist...anyway any damage?


    34. 06-03-2008 04:55 AM #104
      Quite a lot of damage as it seems. Includes cracked bumper, broken a/c line, broken wing splasher, the fmic touched the radiator and gave it a tiny dent.

      The bottom engine bay cover (close to the street) was off due to draining the oil from the oil pan yesterday and refilling it. That allowed the little kitty to touch the a/c line and the pulleys.
