      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
      timing chains
      rear main seal
      neuspeed pulley set
      masontech crackpipe kit
      somewhat wire tuck
      new radiator,
      new fans
      battery relocated to the trunk
      mk4 headgasket set
      metal waterpump
      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)
      polished manifold
      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 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.

      got my 5th gear from TDIparts.com good guys to talk to about what to go with and it is a pretty easy install. You need the 5th gear and the selector gear.

      lol NO!

      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?

      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.
