      Fixed a new exhaust system under the Scirocco from a friend of mine...


      By daywalker823 at 2012-04-29

      Not finished yet....new catalyst and race header will follow...

      Then I did some detail work on this one for another friend of mine...


      By daywalker823 at 2012-04-29

      And found out...9" rims with 15mm wheel spacers are a little too big for the scirocco front axle...


      By daywalker823 at 2012-04-29

      Now need some smaller rims for the front...

      I grounded her today.

      Why, you ask? Water leak.
      I get home, look over to grab something. See a little piddle of water from the right door. Hrmn?
      Go around, investigate... Water coming from speaker grille. Ruh roh...
      Take speaker out (first time I've ever had that door apart - and, I have NO idea how it's made it 2 years with me without seeing this...) No water barrier behind speaker, wire runs straight down the door (no slack, no drip loop.) Water's running right down the speaker wire, and into the mounting hole. Gah!
      And, since it's supposed to rain - a lot - this week... Wilda stays in garage until fixed.

      Yesterday I got it inspected (it passed; hooray for new lax NJ inspections).

      Today I hooked the door lock knobs back up, they had fallen out of the lock arm in the door.

      Yesterday I installed new washer pump in windshield washer reservoir, and then had to re-aim the nozzles to spray on the windshield glass instead of at the base of it, lol.

      Then I found out that a section of hose running from one nozzle to the other is leaking something awful. Thank god my rain tray cover is still intact and performs well! I have ordered some new replacement hose from the dealer today and when it comes in I'll fix the leak.

      I install a new horn cause one was defective, change out clutch cable again & install new techtonics stainless borla muffler cause the previous one had stress cracks around the inlet & outlet areas but hey I got about 14 1/2 yrs out of it . The new tt borla is different though, it's 4" shorter & doesn't come with the famous borla emboss stamp on it, Minimal fabrication is needed but the sound is awesome

      I changed the oil and coolant after the first 50 miles after the re-build. The oil was BLACK and the coolant was brown.
      Found the oil leak on the back of the engine, I possibly (?) forgot to tighten correctly, the oil temp sensor.
      I'll finish up the new software for the speedo this weekend and trial fit the new dash and the computer. (That will be fun
      AND... Start the re-wire (again) for the new headlights.

      Monday: Called to put it back on full insurance instead of storage
      Tuesday: Bought the plate sticker and picked up the insurance cards
      Wednesday: Drove the crap out of it and took it out to the local meet
      Thursday: Dropped it at a friends to store it there since my landlord won't let me keep two vehicles on the property anymore.
      Friday: Gave my two months notice to my landlord. If you don't have room for my cars, you don't have room for me.

      Fuel map near perfect! Tried boost (a bit ) todAY
      On the road back home tonight, I had a BMW mini on my tail, since I was tuning I let him pass.
      It was one of the managers from work. He gave me a thiumbs up as he passed, and pulled in front of me. I pulled out hit boost and released as I passed him so he could hear my "Angry Squirrel"
      That prompted a big smile from him (and on me)...

      Ahhhh I love this car!

      I am changing from stock to H4 headlights today. Plenty of light to go around soon!
      Then to finish up the MS wiring under the dash and MAYBE add the ISV.... (wired but no end connector as yet).
      If the thought of something makes me giggle for longer than 15 seconds, I am to assume that I am not allowed to do it.

      Today I replaced every single inch of the old, yellowed, brittle windshield washer tubing. I ended up replacing the "tee" and used heat shrink on all connections for a clean look...
      ...and then, as I was installing the last part (hose to driver's side nozzle) I broke the nozzle. It just kind of crumbled apart.

      The passenger side nozzle is fine but I'm sure I'll have a hell of a time tracking down a new replacement; I think they're obsolete thru VWoA. I may have to use the MkII double-jet nozzles, we'll see.

      Guess who blew out his reverse gear today?


      Get home, cars parked on both sides of the street. Had to back up, oh, 4 houses, because some dumbass decided to play "welll, I'm not going to back up (they had an opening one house back....)
      I, ah, backed up too fast for my somewhat damaged reverse gear, apparently.
      The car shuddered violently. I pulled into the opening, and stopped.
      They pass. I pull up to my driveway (again), put it in reverse, and... it blows back out of gear.
      Got her stuck in reverse. Rocked her out of reverse. Drove, turned around, pulled up the driveway.

      That trans rebuild is going to come a lot sooner than I wanted it to, it seems....

      Makes it kind of a pain in the ass to get into the garage (my normal parking method) without reverse....
      So, I will, for the time being, replace a major PITA with a minor PITA (pushing the car out of the garage to leave.)
      And, ah, "strategic parking."

      Unfortunately, this puts all projects on the car on hold, so that I can budget for a trans rebuild.

      That's a helluva price....
      But, I think that going from a 2Y to an FF would take a lot of fun out of the car....

      Linky? Just for craps & grins?

      *Edit:
      looking over a gear ratio chart I found... It might not be that bad.
      Defenitely want to know where you found that.

      Unfortunately, going to an FF also means new clutch & flywheel required... =/

      YAY Its friday!
      Tonight I trial fit the computer and fit the cables.
      Then on to fitting the new dash and speedo cable.

      The car runs well enough for the trip to Cincy!

      Complete . . . Not really, but satisfy . . . Yes. Last season was a decent season of usage. 1500 miles

      This season I've been off driving it as I can . . . If only it stayed nice and stop raining.

      There is a number of things still left to do . . . check . . . and update.

      The brown truck brought me a package from Zeb today.
      In it:
      - new cluster light bulbs (to go with the cluster I'm getting in a few weeks)
      - new sunroof crank. Yays! No more floppy sunroof crank!
      - Cup
      '88 Scirocco 16v, 'tastefully' modified.

      things currently broken (QSW): 5!!
