Corradomagic can fulfill that entire list (just about at least)
So yet again, the motor is coming out of my corrado.
after the rebuild g60, the 16v, the vr6, now the vr6 coming back out again...
here is a list of to do's:
262 cams w/giac chip
rear main seal
neuspeed pulley set
masontech crackpipe kit
somewhat wire tuck
battery relocated to the trunk
mk4 headgasket set
new "steel enforced" oilpan
clutch? depends if oil got on it from the rear main seal (only has 10k on it)
tdi 5th gear - if you have any info please tell me (ordering, DIY etc etc)
stainless steel exhaust studs
SS braided fuel lines from dubnutz.com
mild port/polish headwork
so far, i pulled the motor out. So far on order = timing chains, rear main seal, mk4 headgasket set, waterpump, new radiator.
i have alot to do so this is going to be a slow process because college takes up most of my time
i'll post pics as they come!
things already done to the car:
bfi stg2 motor mounts
stainless steel brake lines
crossdrilled and slotted rotors
girling g60 calipers
smoked tail lights
euro ecodes w/ 4300k hids
ronal r15s 15x6.5 et 35
some stereo work (going to be redone)
repainted engine bay w/ removed seam sealer
o2a billet shifter bushings (verdict motorsports)
I am also planning on a tdi 5th gear swap. Currently I am running 3K rpm at 70 and 3.5K at 80. We can go 65 and 75 on our highways here so I am safe from tickets at these speeds. I have looked at Kerma's kit online and they say one of their kits will drop the rpm 800. I still do not know if all I need is the gear or anything else. They want $350 for the gear too, so I would like to figure out what is needed and see if it could be found at a junk yard.
Poor Timmy, this thing sits more than you have driven it! lol, anyways sell me your steering wheel!!!!!!!
no pics because ralph forget the camera but...dash is out, wiring is almost all seperated and de-taped. holes are drilled inside the cab for the wiring. tomorrow going to clean up a bit, finish unwraping the wires and label all the connectors with alot of reading of diagrams to see what all those extra clips and cut wires are that i didnt know about!
will post pics tomorrow.
any have some suggestions about how to run the fuel lines?

Good luck getting the car back together.
I rarely turn down free beer, but that is one I would
the easy part is done, now you are in for the fun
get it done
updates from tonight.
motor back in for mock up of where i need to cut and extend wires, hole drilled in floor to run wires and dash removed to change heater core and remove AC stuff.
most of the wiring is upwrapped and a made a list of plugs i need to look up and find what they are but i forget it at my other house in the garage
where can i find online wiring diagrams?
the wiring is like 90% done. to make a long story short. making a 98 jetta harness compatible with a b3 passat engine harness. meaning taking pins out of the b3 passat harness, and plugging in the 98 jetta harness pins. what had to be transfered....
headlights, starter, power/ground wires, removing AC, removing SAI and all components, installing wiper motor, reverse light switch, installing starter relay (still in process) ...
its not easy. lol
once we finish mutating the harnesses, i have to plug it in, mke sure everything works, take it back out, extend everything, plug it back in make sure it works, then i can start body work.
