Quote, originally posted by TTracing » Joe, what oil cooler did you ordered?
Mocal 235 16 row with lightweight racing hose, remote oil filter housing and Canton Mecca 6 in screw on filter.
Got my intake and catch can on, but now I need to repair the vacuum crap under the intake manifold cause I have a CEL from breaking a lot of it
I washed off 9 eggs that were pelted at it.
Then later in the day just gazed in AWW at the damage the eggs caused.
Wish people weren't such cowards and instead of throwing them at my car just tried throwing them at me. (wouldn't go over as well for the culprit.)
to that. How about audiworld? Wouldn't that be better?
...or, you could pick up a 180q and BT it for cheap That's give you an excuse to come back
And, I cleaned my engine bay tonight, and tomorrow is the outside

Changed my plugs a couple of days ago. I'm not sure when they were changed last (maybe 20K ago? Previous owner probably had it done at the 40K service.). They weren't bad, but I didn't waste my time/$ with the change. Plus, it allowed the TT and I to bond.
I called a friend about the damn fuel filter. He explained how the quick disconnect works...I'll give that another go this afternoon.
I'm gonna look for some ramps and a torque wrench this afternoon, too. I've been wanting both of those for a while. If all goes well, I'm going to install the ECS poly dogbone mounts today, too.
I just ordered poly FSB bushings to fix the creaking in my front suspension and a Neuspeed Rear Stabilizer Bar from TTStuff. Also got an air filter/cabin filter... timing belt, haldex, and oil being changed this Wednesday. Hopefully after all this I can recover financially and work on getting a DP/Exhaust and chip for the summer!
Oil change - Castrol Syntec 5w-40
Fuel Filter change
Poly inserts for dog bone
Paid somebody to do 'em for me.
Don't have a good place to dispose of oil (yet...);
Couldn't get the f*$%King quick disconnects on the fuel filter;
Got the dog bone off no problem, but couldn't get the center bolt out (I think that woulda needed some air tools and/or a vice...neither of which I have)
Glad it's done. I like the shop: Got a recommendation for a great VW/Audi shop from a local. Turns out...the Audi division is visible from my porch! Makes me feel good, in case I ever have to leave it over night. I'm rollin' up on 60K, so I'm trying to space out the stuff a little. I think I'll go for a Haldex and brake fluid change next. Then, TB/WB/etc.
Changed up the air intake. Took the top part of the stock box off leaving the bottom part installed (mainly to revert back to stock when going to the dealer ) installed a K&N cone filter and now it goes whoooooosh pshhhhh

Don't worry - many a seasoned mechanic have broken them trying to get them off. I had someone else do it as well - actually when I had my TB done - did'nt cost me anymore.
FINALLY got the parts together that i ordered. got the neuspeed 22mm front sway and a 1/2 kmac kit, both going in this week along with oil change, plug change, and alignment.
my front sway is creaky as hell and im tired of hitting it with silicone spray to make the sound go away- time to cure it once and for all and upgrade in the process...
i was debating for a while whether to get the kmac or not because my drop is mild and there isnt THAT much neg camber, but the look has been bothering me, and i might as well save my tires a little more.
i seem to do mods in spurts usually when its time for an oil change, so the next episode after this one will be another oil change, haldex change, maybe some spacers, replace windshield (slightly cracked. thanks winter!) and finally get the driver's door latch sensor replaced...
