      Mine got to enjoy making a 911 owner question the validity of his vanity plate.

      Nothing better then the feel of a Scirocco at high speed


      Then again....nothing worse in your "customized" (use of Z intentional) 911's rear view mirror when you are doing all you can but you just can't get away.....MWAH HAH HAH

      Thought the power steering pump was shot, turns out, it was the belt that was shot. Replaced that and the license plate bulbs that I got pulled over for being out. Total cost: $11.37 good day.

      I wanted to make it out but I was too busy mounting my Abarth exhaust. I also just got the car back after it not running 100% for a while. Didn't want to chance the ~120 mile round trip it would be to having something go wrong.

      You would have had the oldest car there, had you gone. Mine was the oldest out there tonight, and the only Scirocco. Mostly mkV cars, with some older cars mixed in. It was pretty cool, despite me (unintentionally) breaking up the caravan by taking the back roads to bypass traffic on the highway. Not everyone pulled off the highway at the same time but we all got there eventually.

      Darn, we'll have to meet up some other time. We're still doing the Tuesday meets near Palo Alto. And we've started a new thing meeting up in Milpitas on Fridays late at night. We get to see all the street racers and drift rats.

      Changed my backside engine mount and painted my new brake drums in LC6V (Car color).

      Did a special tool for mounting the wheel bearing caps without dents.

      Then found out not all parts I ordered where in the package...frustrated quitting was the result.

      Now I have to write with my dealer...hope to get him redirecting the missing parts.

      Installed a knock sensor and put verything back together. Didn't get it started on the 3 cranks my battery gave me, but came real close. I'll look over everything tomorrow, charge the battery and try again.

      Replaced the breather hose. For the first time, it looked easy and turned out to actually be easy. Also ordered the last existing new pair of license plate light cover lenses in the country(according to Jim in VW parts dept)

      Paid a whopping $280 to have the flex pipe replaced in the exhaust. Pricey but sounds so sweet now.

      Took the speedo cable off and poured a couple of ounces of oil inside the cable...no more ticking when driving and the needle has stopped bouncing.

      I just got home from driving it to my work earlier this afternoon, where I put it up on a lift and sprayed the exhaust manifold nuts. I'm letting it sit overnight.

      Tomorrow morning I will respray before attempting to remove and do the 4-2-1 swap. I will have to remove the wheel, CV axle, and 4-point stressbar anyway; so that will give it some more time to soak. The best thing is, my work is at a VW dealership so if the sh*t hits the fan and I break a stud in the head or anything, the car is already in the shop!

      (but I'm crossing all fingers and toes that nothing bad will happen)

      So, follow up post from above^
      Just got home from doing the swap at my work. No exhaust leaks, and it feels like it pulls a little harder, expecially abouve 4k. I still have to install Neuspeed TB and I'm sure that will help things more.

      As far as the fasteners go, I got really lucky. Seven of the manifold nuts came out no problemo, and the last one pulled the stud out. All I had to do was break them loose and I could do the rest with my fingers. See the second pic below, the stud was the upper one third from left.




      One thing I did find...my driver's side sway bar bracket is broken. And they are obsolete now, too. So I'll have to track one of those down. I still bolted the bar back in but won't take corners super crazy hard until I get that repaired:
