      Pulled the battery and put it on the charger in the garage.
      I haven't started it in weeks since discovering the injection pump is leaking fuel from somewhere.

      Ah, diesel--the cause of and solution to so many of life's problems.
      Like my Facebook page, Quantum Mechanics, for Audi Fox Quattro progress pics and more.

      Put a charged battery in the TD and cranked it up. Ran it a bit then moved it to a different spot in the lot at work so as not to attract unnecessary attention to it being there full time...and with expired Maine plates to boot! Gotta get it ready to sell so I can make room for the new QSW!

      FINALLY got to take the head off tonight. That allowed me to get at the last two nuts that hold on the exhaust manifold, and get the manifold off.
      What a PITA!
      This car is NOT as easy to work on as the transverse engines.

      Put it in the back - then you can have 300hp and lose the center driveshaft!

      and why can i not have over 300hp with the engine up front ?

      I like the way you're talking, but why stop there?
      How about 2 engines and better weight distribution?

      Yesterday morning drove to the ski hill with 3 buddies, to go Cat Skiing, drifted around the parking lot for a while then got reprimanded by the owner of ski hill......

      Finished up some powdercoating last night, got the PS brackets coated. Got the intake manifold and TB sandblasted. The exhaust manifold is soaking in phosphoric acid before painting.
      Luckily the keeps me warm out in the garage for hours at a time.
      Then I can start putting it all back together; hopefully before all the snow leaves us.

      I opened the hatch and threw the new OEM muffler in there and closed it again. It's warm today, but wet and windy. I will say it again....I NEED a garage!
      Oh, and I also pulled the 1.8T engine out of the back seat of my Audi 4000s...it was only there for about 2 months while I made room for it and found a hoist and got off my duff. Glad I didn't run into anyone and have it crush me in the meantime. Don't try this at home, kids. I referenced that becaus eit's the engine that will inhabit my 82 Coupe sometime *this year?*....Maybe next year...
      ANd it wouldn't fit in the trunk due to the turbo....otherwise it would have eased right into the cavernous trunk and only crushed the gas tank in an accident...no biggy.
