      The cat that jumped in front of me was black.
      I burried him properly, despite what will cost me to repair the car.

      So mine wasnt free

      Finally got time to install my Sirius radio. Settled with a $10 cassatte adapter for now since i dont have the $150 for a nice ipod + imput connector as of yet. Still need to also hardwire in the power source since i dont like using the cig hole for power

      If it cools down enough, i may go out and pull the 35# counter weight today also

      what are you using for hardwiring?

      the route I went ended up bringing unwanted background noise in when its being charged (this is for a Zune)... need to find a diff adapter.

      also I have the audio going into my head unit through just a mini jack to RCA connection.. and I really like it. I much prefer the interface of my Zune to the one on my head unit.

      I wouldnt put a battery in the cd changer slot. You need to vent the battery and running that line would be a little hard. Plus having the weight up front isnt that bad when you remove ~30lbs with the battery.

      Im using a cassette adapter for now. I want the same RCA connection as what you have so i can just swap the jacks from sirius to ipod. I dont really think i will need the charger so i can save $60 that way also.

      As for the charger, i havent got that far yet, still using the plug into the cig lighter. When i have a chance to hardwire that in, i will be much happier since i hate my ash tray flap open

      So should I just use the stock battery box with the tiny battery, and hack the box so I can mount stuff?

      I contemplated installing the battery in the area where the cd changer was, I have a sealed AGM battery which fit with plenty of space to spare but considering the fact that I will probably need to replace the battery more frequently I decided to install the battery in the spare well and then the switch in the CD changer spot. The changer was not hard to remove at all. BTW I can get that little door closed with the switch in the on position.

      Washed and waxed.
      Seems so petty compared to the previous 2 posts.

      Started on the interior. Going with black suede. It took some trial and error but I think I got the hang of it.

      1. Eliminted PS and A/C until I have time to swap in the extra rack and PS pump.

      2. Broke yet ANOTHER w/m tee.


    25. 07-14-2008 07:43 PM #130

    26. 07-24-2008 06:16 PM #131
      Made a few fun purchases today. APR intake manifold with plate and TB, Scat Rods, Kinetics T3/T4 50 trim, water/meth injection kit, Siemens 630cc injectors, Walbro 255lphr Fuel pump kit, oil line kit, and my favorite GReddy Profec e-01 Boost controller

      Probably gonna have to put new tires on that list soon too

      i posted about this a while back, but never followed up. some of you may question the motivations here because this is not for any performance gain whatsoever, but really my answer is uh, because it looks cool?

      anyway, here are some shots of the moon equipment analog clock gauge that i built using the two outer pieces of a spare OEM vent pod, a black modshack adaptor ring, some silicone aquarium sealant, and the 2 metal L brackets that came with the moon clock. sorry some of these are blurry, the camera sucked!

      here is the stuff i started with: moon shift knob, and all other items used for the clock...

      i will spare you the details here, but here is a blurry pic of the clock installed in the vent ring:

      and here we have the back view:

      so here is a blurry one of old reliable that I already have on the other side, and I wanted it to match this one in a way but still stand out…

      and volia, here she is installed for the test fit, and it fits like a glove! This baby was only about 100 bucks or so IIRC? yes, I know, the font is not the same as the rest of the gauges but whatever. it also has a white backlight which does kinda match the rest. the switch to change the time is going to be located directly below the bottom edge of the top of the dash, and it will look clean and hardly noticeable.

      threw the moon ball on the shifter, and had to use one of the 4 thread-adaptor rings this came with… BTW this was only 25 bucks, i mean really how could i say no?

      and finally- here is the full impact. im a simple dude when it comes to mods, so for me I actually call this “done”. diamond plate aluminum floormats from a dude on vortex who sold his mark 1 TT and got a mark 2.

      also, ive had my engine covers off the car since last fall, when I took them off and gave them all a fresh respray of krylon high-temp silver. They have been out in the garagein storage, and this month I finally pulled them out and finished it up using one-shot pinstriping enamel in process blue, with a mack lettering brush. again, a needless mod but I like the look… threw the moon stickers on for +25HP haha

      kinda embarrassing here in this one because the freshly painted covers make the engine itself look dirty as hell. time to take them back off and give everything a nice detailing…

      and finally here she is looking stock as a rock on the outside, but I actually like it that way for now…need some summer wheels and an exhaust, and im calling it done.

      sorry to the admins and everyone here for the huge pics that are sucking up all the internet power!

      Installed an inline fuse on my boost gauge, just in case.

      Also tweaked my fuel trim settings by using Unisettings to try to get rid of my 17743 errors.

      Haldex change last friday - first time i've done it myself - wasn't that bad.

      LCA's are off and i'm rebonding the spherical bearings into the arms - as the adhesive failed, and based upon inspection - it didn't cure properly the first time. Arms go back in today.

      i had an issue with the fluid shooting back out as fast as I was trying to shoot it in.

      I now have a 65535 VAGcom error when trying to read my Haldex unit.

      65535 - Internal Control Module Memory Error

      Do you think that may be due to low fluid or just a fried out Haldex unit?

      I have 110k miles on my TT.

      Code is for the controller - not the fluid - BUT if you have too little fluid it might be malfunctioning.

      In order to get as much fluid as I could - I use a piece of latex tubing that fit over the oil cartridge and right inside the drain/fill hole. Once all the fluid was in, i crimped the latex tubing, set down the oil cartridge and got the plug. This allowed me to pull out the tubing, cover the hole and then insert the plug. Sure some came out, but not that much. Just to be sure - i'd try drain/refill and clear the code and see if it comes back.
